They're so preoccupied with whether or not they could reboot "Jurassic Park" that they didn't stop to think if they should reboot "Jurassic Park"... but life will find a way, and so here's the first teaser for "Jurassic World".

"Jurassic World" is set to be released in June 2015. The first teaser doesn't give much away, appearing on the Universal Spain YouTube channel. The teaser harks back to the famous scene in the original film, eerily promising that dinosaurs are heading our way... Update: The lawyers have apparently killed the teaser video like a pack of velociraptors taking down their prey, but we've replaced it with the better video that's since arrived. A proper trailer is expected on Friday 28 November, so you don't have long to wait.

The original "Jurassic Park" was released in 1993, Steven Spielberg adapting the Michael Crichton novel and pioneering computer-generated special effects in the process. The smash hit film spawned two sequels, but it's been more than a decade since anyone returned to the titular park.

In "Jurassic World", the original island of Isla Nublar is a fully-functioning dino-theme park -- until a new attraction goes terribly wrong. The film stars everyone's favourite "Guardian of the Galaxy" Chris Pratt alongside Bryce Dallas Howard, Judy Greer and "New Girl"'s Jake Johnson. Fans will also recognise BD Wong reprising his role of Dr Wu from the original film.

Filmed this summer in Hawaii and New Orleans, "Jurassic World" is co-written and directed by Colin Trevorrow, who helmed the indie sci-fi gem "Safety Not Guaranteed" starring Johnson and Aubrey Plaza. If you haven't seen "Safety Not Guaranteed", treat yourself and check it out this weekend.
