Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is coming, whether you like it or not (I like it, I like it very much). The fifth film in the Jurassic Park franchise, Fallen Kingdom is a direct sequel to Jurassic World as The Lost World: Jurassic Park was to the OG Jurassic Park.

This week we’ve seen multiple teasers for the trailer, including a behind-the-scenes video showcasing the film’s use of practical effects to create more animatronic dinosaurs, after the first Jurassic World drew criticism for going nearly full-blown CGI with its creatures. But, finally, the first official trailer is here in all its volcanic glory!

Though Jurassic World divided fans, the prospect of a fully open theme park featuring dinosaurs gone wrong brought in audiences in groves, making Jurassic World the third-highest grossing movie of all time taking in $1.67 billion worldwide.

Only time will tell if this trailer — now with 100% more Jeff Goldblum! — can bring fans who disapproved of Jurassic World back into the Jurassic Park fold.

The film is produced by Steven Spielberg and Colin Trevorrow, director of the first Jurassic World, and is directed by J.A. Bayona (A Monster Calls, The Orphanage). Written by Trevorrow and Derek Connolly (Safety Not Guaranteed, Kong: Skull Island), Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom brings back Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) and Owen (Chris Pratt), as they seek to save the dinosaurs on Isla Nublar from an active volcano. Dr. Henry Wu (BD Wong) from Jurassic Park and Jurassic World will also be a part of the action, as will Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum), albeit in a limited role. In fact, it feels like we may have heard every line of delicious dialogue that Golblum delivers in the finished film in this trailer…

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is out June 22, 2018.
