Chris Pratt has teased his role in the upcoming Jurassic Park sequel, Jurassic World.

Pratt, who announced he had been cast in a leading role in the film told Total Film that his character will be a mix of Jeff Goldblum and Sam Neill's characters, "He's got a little of both. He's got a little bit of the Goldblum cynicism but also the Sam Neill excitement at the wonder of the biology of it all, so it's a combination."

He added that while people may wonder why the characters in the series are still interacting with dinosaurs, the script justifies it, "What I liked about it was it answers the question of, 'Why would you do that?' Like, how do you suspend disbelief to be like, 'Oh yes, let's make this mistake again. We haven't learned our lesson about dinosaurs, we should definitely live with them and see how that works out!' After like three tries at it."

"They answer the question really well through the script. Colin [Trevorrow] did a great job of writing it and justifying it and in his own way having fun with that, so anybody who goes in with that question will be really amused – the way I was – about how they answer that."

Filming of Jurassic World is set to begin in April and the film is slated for release in June 2015.
