Starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and B.D. Wong, Jurassic World, with its thrilling score by Oscar®-winning composer Michael Giacchino, earned a staggering $1.6 billion at the global box office and is the fourth top-grossing film of all time. Fans can next experience the wonder, adventure, and thrills when the all-new motion-picture event Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom hits theaters on June 22, 2018.

Set 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park, the Jurassic World theme park lets guests experience the thrill of witnessing actual dinosaurs. But something ferocious lurks behind the Park's attractions—a genetically modified dinosaur with savage capabilities. When the massive creature escapes, chaos erupts across the island. It's up to Owen and Claire to save the park's tourists from an all-out prehistoric assault.

“Michael Giacchino’s music sounds different with a live orchestra,” said Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow. “It surrounds you, strengthens your muscles, sweeps you into adventure, and demands your heroic best. Hearing his music played live is one of my favorite things to do, and I’m honored to be part of this awesome event.”

Jurassic World in Concert is a follow-up to the currently touring Jurassic Park in Concert, which has been presented by more than 50 orchestras to date, with sold-out performances in cities including London, Paris, Melbourne, Toronto, Taipei, and Philadelphia.
