We've been waiting with anticipation for the first trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom for some time. Now it's been released and it's safe to say that it looks incredible:

We can now add the trailer for Fallen Kingdom to what we already know we can expect from the film, namely that Chris Pratt's raptor trainer Owen Brady will be back and he'll have a little pal.

You'll remember that we've already seen a teasing snippet of footage from the film, which was shared last week by Colin Trevorrow, the director of the first Jurassic World over Twitter.

Trevorrow is not directing Fallen Kingdom, as the Spanish director J.A. Bayona, responsible for 2016's A Monster Calls has been given the nod this time around. However, Trevorrow is staying on board as a writer and executive producer of the film.

The clip Trevorrow shared of Fallen Kingdom showed raptor whisperer Owen making friends with a baby raptor. The dino looks suspiciously like Owen's old mate Blue, the raptor he befriended in the first Jurassic World film. Will Blue be making a comeback in Fallen Kingdom?

Along with Pratt, Fallen Kingdom will also bring back Bryce Dallas Howard, B.D. Wong, and Jeff Goldblum as the suave Dr Ian Malcolm, who he played in the first two original Jurassic Park films.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will be the fifth installment of the box office-smashing Jurassic Park franchise, and the second film of the sequel trilogy which started with Jurassic World in 2015.

Thankfully, it will come just three years after the last film in the franchise, which looked dead after Jurassic Park III in 2001.

According to the official synopsis for Fallen Kingdom, the film will feature all the wonder and thrills we expect from the franchise and will also see the return of some of our favourite characters and dinos - including new breeds which are 'more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before'.

Trevorrow has already hinted that the film will be 'a parable of the treatment animals receive today'. So be nice to those birds at the bottom of your garden.

Fallen Kingdom still isn't out until next June, but no doubt there will be plenty more trailers to come. We can't wait to see more of what the film will be like.
