Welcome to Jurassic World! The first teaser trailer for the upcoming fourth installment of the Jurassic Park franchise debuted on Sunday, Nov. 23, sending fans into a tizzy of anticipation for the full trailer, which is set to be released by Universal Pictures on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 27.
At 20 seconds long, Sunday’s teaser offers just a brief look at the movie’s stars and special effects, but still pays homage to Steven Spielberg‘s 1993 original. It opens with a glimpse of the classic Jurassic Park gate, now grander and with a new name, slowly opening up to reveal what appears to be train tracks.
From there it flashes to a shot of Gallimimus dinosaurs sprinting past a tour bus, a twist on the famous Gallimimus stampede in the original that sent Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and others running for their lives.
Subsequent shots show Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt looking worriedly at one another over some unknown catastrophe, as a new version of John Williams’ original theme song looms quietly in the background.
Due out on June 12, 2015, Jurassic World takes place 22 years after Spielberg’s Jurassic Park. In addition to Pratt and Howard, it stars Vincent D’Onofrio and Jake Johnson, among others. The last sequel was 2001’s Jurassic Park III, which featured Neill, William H. Macy, Tea Leoni, and Laura Dern.
