First ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ footage reveals a baby velociraptor

Director Colin Trevorrow revealed the first look at the Jurassic World sequel, and everything’s coming up Blue.

Trevorrow, who’s serving as a producer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, posted the six-second clip to Twitter, captioning it with a Thanksgiving-themed message of “From our Jurassic family to yours.” And it is an absolute delight.

The footage is so brief it could hardly be called anything remotely resembling a teaser trailer. But what it lacks in time it more than makes up in adorableness as Fallen Kingdom star Chris Pratt is seen grinning as he pets a baby velociraptor, who practically chirps and purrs in response.

The baby velociraptor looks like it’s an animatronic dinosaur—which director J.A. Bayona promised there would be more of in the sequel—giving it more of a grounded look even in the brief clip. It also appears to have similar markings to Blue, one of the velociraptors trained by Pratt’s character Owen Grady.

Is it a flashback, or will this velociraptor appear in the film’s present-day? And does it even matter? We won’t get to see Fallen Kingdom until next year, but until then, we’ll just watch this on repeat. It’s already a vast improvement on some parts of Jurassic World.
