Nov. 25, 2014 | 11:02 a.m.

The dinosaurs are ready to roam the big screen once more.

The new trailer for “Jurassic World” arrived Tuesday, offering the first detailed glimpse of the anticipated fourth film in the franchise inspired by the work of author Michael Crichton.

Set for release June 12, the movie stars newly minted action hero Chris Pratt, who is called upon to help protect visitors to the world’s grandest theme park from a new, genetically modified dinosaur.

“Jurassic World” is directed by Colin Trevorrow, who earned acclaim with his earlier indie entry “Safety Not Guaranteed”; Trevorrow cowrote the script for the upcoming film with his earlier collaborator Derek Connolly, who also is credited as a screenwriter on another planned summer 2015 release, “Monster Trucks.”

“Jurassic Park” director Steven Spielberg serves as an executive producer on the new movie, which also stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, Irrfan Khan, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, BD Wong and Judy Greer.

Pratt proved his movie star bona fides this year with a leading man turn in Marvel’s box office hit “Guardians of the Galaxy.” The quirky cosmic adventure cast Pratt as interstellar renegade Peter Quill, a.k.a. Star-Lord, who bands together with an unlikely group of heroes to stop a genocidal villain and protect a planet from extinction.
