Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow
dropped a nice holiday gift on Twitter today: the first footage
of the sequel Jurassic
World: Fallen Kingdom. In the dino-dorable clip,
raptor trainer Owen (Chris
Pratt) gets a nuzzle from a tiny raptor that strongly
resembles his right-hand reptile Blue. Watch the
six-second clip below.
Directed by J.A. Bayona, Fallen Kingdom
takes place after the events of 2015’s Jurassic World,
which made more than $1.5 billion worldwide. Trevorrow is
co-writing and producing the sequel but has been cagey about

In March, Bayona shared this film still of a
child looking at dinosaur skeletons.
In July, Trevorrow shared a photo of Bayona on
set with a mystery dino in the foreground.
There’s also a teaser poster, which calls back
to a line spoken by Dr. Ian Malcolm (Jeff
Goldblum) in 1993’s Jurassic Park: “Life finds a way.”
Goldblum is set to reprise his chaos-theorist character (who
also appeared in 1997’s Jurassic Park sequel The Lost
World) in Fallen Kingdom. In addition to Pratt,
Jurassic World stars Bryce Dallas Howard, and B.D. Wong
will return for the sequel.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
opens in theaters on June 22, 2018.
