The first footage from Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has been released in the form of a six-second teaser.
Co-screenwriter Colin Trevorrow - who has been succeeded as director by J.A. Bayona - unveiled the clip showing a baby dinosaur cuddling up to Chris Pratt's protagonist, Owen.
Returning alongside Pratt in the Jurassic World sequel are Bryce Dallas Howard and B.D. Wong who both starred in the 2015 blockbuster. The sequel sees the addition of Justice Smith, James Cromwell, Toby Jones and Jeff Goldblum who will reprise the role of beloved Jurassic Park character Ian Malcolm.
Director Bayona's previous credits include The Orphanage and The Impossible.
Upon its release, Jurassic World made more than $1.6bn to become the fourth highest-grossing film of all time.
Teasing the sequel, Pratt said: "[Fallen Kingdom] is going to be a scarier version, a little bit darker, and will continue to expand and carry the story forward in a way that is really unexpected and you wouldn't have imagined.”
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will be released 22 June 2018.
