Someone let the dinosaur out of its cage a little earlier than expected.

Ahead of the planned screening on Thanksgiving, Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for Jurassic World, featuring a gorgeous look at the SeaWorld-like attractions Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and others will have to contend with in the film.

The trailer is full of homages to the original Jurassic Park films—perhaps most beautifully in the quiet piano notes at the end evoking John Williams’ main theme from the first film. The two-minute-40-second glimpse also shows off the horrifying—and awesome-—evolution of what fictional dinosaur cloning can create. Unfortunately, the trailer does not confirm whether Pratt is playing a future version of Burt Macklin, but it does prove just how dangerous the situation can become when dealing with dino DNA.

Director Colin Trevorrow tweeted out the trailer in quite understated fashion.
