Executive producer and screenwriter Colin Trevorrow has unveiled the first footage from “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” showing Chris Pratt’s return as the raptor handler.
The six-second teaser shows a dino hatchling cuddling up against Pratt. “From our Jurassic family to yours,” Treverrow tweeted on Wednesday.

Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are returning for the sequel to the 2015 blockbuster “Jurassic World.” The new installment also stars Justice Smith, James Cromwell, Toby Jones, and Jeff Goldblum, who co-starred in 1993’s “Jurassic Park” and in 1997’s “The Lost World: Jurassic Park,” but was absent from “Jurassic World.” He played quick-witted mathematician Ian Malcolm, who managed to survive in both films.
J.A. Bayona is directing the next installment. Trevorrow, who helmed “Jurassic World,” wrote the script for the sequel with Derek Connolly. The executive producers are Steven Spielberg and Trevorrow. Producers are Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley, along with Bayona’s producing partner Belén Atienza.
“Jurassic World” hauled $1.67 billion worldwide, becoming the fourth-highest-grossing movie in history. The sequel opens June 22.
“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,” Treverrow said about the movie last year during Spain’s Sitges Film Festival.
