While movie fans wait for the trailer for Jurassic Word: Fallen Kingdom to arrive, producer Colin Trevorrow has just shared a teaser for the upcoming sequel.
On Wednesday, Nov. 22, Trevorrow unveiled the footage on social media. It features a baby raptor and Chris Pratt as he returns to his raptor-handling duties in the next installment of the franchise.
The Short Teaser
"From our Jurassic family to yours," Trevorrow captioned the video clip ahead of Turkey Day. The six-second video shows Pratt's raptor-whispering character, Owen Brady, petting a cute baby Velociraptor. It appears that he knows what he's doing because the little carnivorous hatchling purrs and cuddles up to his hand.

The baby raptor looks just like Owen's buddy Blue from 2015's Jurassic World, with all the matching spots and stripes, which could mean that it's a flashback scene, Gizmodo pointed out. Moreover, Owen can also be seen wearing a gauntlet that is used for training dinosaurs, so this could be how it all started for Owen and Blue.
Cast And Crew
J.A. Bayona is directing the next installment based on a script penned by Derek Connolly and Trevorrow who helmed Jurassic World. Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will reprise their roles in the upcoming sequel alongside Justice Smith, James Cromwell, and Toby Jones.
Jeff Goldblum, who starred in the original 1993 film Jurassic Park and 1997's The Lost World: Jurassic Park, will also reprise his role as the quick-witted mathematician Ian Malcolm in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
The plot has been kept under wraps but there have been some hints on what to expect in the movie. The first image from the film, released in March, showed a young girl staring at a Triceratops fossil in a dinosaur fossil exhibit inside a museum.The first teaser poster also had the tagline, "Life finds a way," written underneath the film's official title and logo.
"The dinosaurs in the film 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," Trevorrow teased during the Sitges Film Festival in Spain.
In a 2015 interview with Wired, he also drew attention to Dr. Wu's (B.D. Wong) warning to Dr. Masrani (Irrfan Khan) about not being the only ones with the ability to make a dinosaur in the future. The filmmaker said that not only would that be an interesting idea to explore, it would also open up a number of possibilities for the expansion of the universe.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom arrives in theaters on June 22, 2018.
