There’s still 211 days until Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom comes out, but we are already getting our first look at the newest chapter of the Jurassic Park franchise. This week we received the first official image as well as a teaser trailer for the upcoming sequel to Jurassic World featuring Chris Pratt feeding baby dinosaurs.
Fallen Kingdom director J.A. Bayona tweeted the first official photo for the film on Wednesday with the caption: “So excited to show you this!! A first look at the new Jurassic adventure.” The photo is a little girl in a red jacket staring at the skull of a Triceratops in a museum-like room. There are several dinosaur fossils in this ominous and dimly-lit room that may be a private collection of dino bones.
On Wednesday, Jurassic World director and Jurassic World 2‘s writer and executive producer Colin Trevorrow posted a teaser trailer for the upcoming dino flick. The short 6-second clip features everyone’s favorite dinosaur trainer Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) playing with an adorable baby velociraptor. Causing everyone to want to run out and adopt a baby dinosaur.
Also joining Pratt in the sequel is Bryce Dallas Howard, Toby Jones, Justice Smith, Rafe Spall, Ted Levine, Daniella Pineda, Geraldine Chaplin and James Cromwell. But most importantly, Jeff Goldblum returns as mathematician Dr. Ian Malcolm and something tells me it won’t just be all cuddly baby dinosaurs and instead there will be a need for an updated lesson on Chaos Theory. Steven Spielberg is an executive producer.
During the Sitges Film Festival in Spain, Treverrow gave everyone a glimpse as to what Fallen Kingdom would be about. “The dinosaurs will be a parable of the treatment animals receive today: the abuse, medical experimentation, pets, having wild animals in zoos like prisons, the use the military has made of them, animals as weapons,” he said.
Jurassic World made an incredible $1.67 billion worldwide, becoming the fourth-highest-grossing movie in history. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom storms into theaters on June 22, 2018.
