On the eve of Thanksgiving in the US, the film’s exec producer – and director of the first film – Colin Trevorrow shared a short clip on Twitter, which sees star Chris Pratt greeting a baby raptor. Check it out below.

The footage is short and sweet, and is certain to whet fans’ appetites for the first full trailer – though as the film isn’t due out until June 2018, it’s hard to guess how soon that will arrive.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will see Pratt return as dino-friendly Owen Grady, alongside Bryce Dallas-Howard and Jeff Goldblum. While plot details are scarce, Trevorrow has suggested that the film will delve further into issues of animal cruelty.

“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,” the filmmaker said at the Sitges film festival in Spain.
