Have we had our first look at a Jurassic World raptor?

Hold on to your butts…

Chris Pratt's Jurassic World may feel like it's a million years (BC) from hitting your local popcorn emporium, but it's actually less than 12 months away.

So it's about time we got our first proper look at one of the dinos from the film, albeit in a slightly strange way.

The below picture was uploaded to Instagram from Valencia, California - home of Legacy Effects, the team responsible for bringing Colin Trevorrow's dinos to life.

The beast certainly looks like he's from the Jurassic franchise, but it's a bit odd that the reveal has come via a relatively obscure social media account and not, say, Colin's Twitter (which has had some great teases throughout production).

Anyway, the good news is the toothy terror looks fantastic, we're really glad that the team are going down a practical route - the mixture of practical effects and CGI stuff is what made the original film so special.

We're also glad they've had the foresight to create a metal muzzle for the blood-thirsty creature. We're sure that'll sort it and nothing can possibly go wrong. 

Check out the image below, then let us know what you think in the comments...

Jurassic World is released 12 June 2015.

      Glad to see its not going to be just all purely CGI. Still think they'll go overboard with it. If you watch the original, there's probably only about 20 minutes of dinos on screen in total, and it works perfectly

      It's stories like these that make new films uninteresting. In fact all "behind the scenes" documentaries dispel the magic. You guys have no imagination nor sense of PT Barnum showmanship these days. If you're gonna make a big movie, and you wanna make it exciting you have to pretend it's REAL. "Do you want to see the NEW RAPTOR???" OMG as much as I want to see the difference between the '14 and the '10 Camaro. Who cares? Now I know the movie is gonna over-hype the Raptors in advance. Therefore when I go watch the movie and the Raptor foreshadowing begins, I see this advertisement in my head and the fantasy is gone. Bad job.
