The movie will be set on Isla Nublar, 22 years after the events seen in the original Jurassic Park, and the story will feature a brand new dinosaur that has never been seen before.

Jurassic World comes to theaters June 12th, 2015 and stars Ty Simpkins, Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, Chris Pratt, Vincent D'Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, B.D. Wong, Omar Sy. The film is directed by Colin Trevorrow.

    I'm sure he's probably the main 'Human' villain. The Dinosaur villain probably is still a T-Rex.

    @the Real Goku: Just what i was gonna say; i thought T-Rex would give any human villain a run for their money.

    You mean to tell me a T-Rex isn't the main villain? This better be a guy that can control dinosaurs or something lol
