New footage from ‘Jurassic World’ sequel revealed

'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom' is coming next year

New footage has been posted online of the forthcoming Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

Colin Trevorrow, who directed Jurassic World and is writer and executive producer on the sequel, has tweeted a clip of dinosaur trainer Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) getting up close and personal with a baby velociraptor. You can watch the footage below.

JA Bayona has taken up directing duties for the sequel, with Bryce Dallas Howard joining Pratt once again. The Spanish filmmaker is known for his work on 2007’s The Orphanage and 2012’s The Impossible. He’ll be working from a script written by Trevorrow and Derek Conolly.

Jeff Goldblum is also re-joining the franchise as cynic Dr Ian Malcolm, while Ted Levine, Rafe Spall, Toby Jones and Geraldine Chaplin are also on board. Goldblum, starred in 1993’s Jurassic Park and 1997’s Jurassic Park: Lost World.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will be released on June 7, 2018 in the UK, and June 22, 2018 in the US.

The official title, release date and poster for the Jurassic World sequel came after filming began back in February of this year. In a subsequent interview, star Chris Pratt revealed that the new film is set to be “darker” and “scarier” than its predecessor – a statement which was backed up by the film’s director JA Bayona.

Some leaked images previously emerged from the set of the film possibly confirming the return of two familiar dinosaurs which both featured in the original Jurassic Park film in 1993 – check those out here –  while producer Frank Marshall shared the first official image back in March.

The 2015 film remains the fourth highest grossing film of all time, making $1.6 billion at the global box office.
