Pratt, who is experiencing monumental success with this year's blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy, says he is excited to be a part of another dream project.
"I grew up loving Jurassic Park and these epic spectacles," he said. "I saw [the first one] opening night in the theater. It was a huge moment for me."
The fourth installment of Universal's biggest franchise is set 22 years after the original Jurassic Park.
The island of Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. This new park is owned by the Masrani Corporation. Owen (Pratt), a member of Jurassic World's on-site staff, conducts behavioral research on the velociraptors. After many years, Jurassic World's attendance rates begin to decline and a new attraction, created to re-spark visitor interest, gravely backfires.
Jurassic World is scheduled to be released on June 12, 2015.0comments
