Pineda joins returning actors Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, as well as previously announced new cast members Justice Smith (Netflix’s The Get Down), Toby Jones (Captain America), and Rafe Spall (Prometheus).

Appearing on several television series like The Detour, American Odyssey, The Originals, and HBO’s High Maintenance, this will be Pineda first major studio film. She has two feature indies currently in post-production, one called Mr. Roosevelt and the other Before/During/After.
The Untitled Jurassic World sequel will hit theaters on June 22, 2018.
