Dinosaurs rule, humans drool in a new behind-the-scenes featurette for "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom."
The first full trailer for the sequel is expected to drop tomorrow, but in the meantime, feast on this video, which is packed with dinosaurs, explosions, and the first footage of Jeff Goldblum reprising his role as Dr. Ian Malcolm.
"We're literally blowing up the island," star Chris Pratt teases. He also gushes that Goldblum's return is "pretty awesome." It's definitely a treat to see Malcolm's smirk as he talks about dinosaurs again.
The most intriguing aspect of the featurette is the emphasis on animatronic dinosaurs. The first "Jurassic World" was knocked for relying too much on CGI, so it's nice to see director Juan Antonio Bayona using real, "live" creatures that Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard can interact with.
More details about the movie have been trickling out recently, with trailer teases and Howard providing the first synopsis of the sequel. A volcano is about to erupt on Isla Nublar, threatening all the dinosaurs that have overrun the island. Howard's Claire Dearing calls up Pratt's dino handler Owen Grady to help save them.
"Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" opens in theaters June 22.
Three years after the destruction of the Jurassic World theme park, Owen Grady and Claire Dearing return to the island of Isla Nublar to save the remaining dinosaurs from a volcano that's about to erupt. They soon encounter terrifying new breeds of gigantic dinos while uncovering a conspiracy that threatens the entire planet. Read More
