chris pratt jurassic worldWe're not the only ones who are excited for "Jurassic World" -- leading man Chris Pratt is pretty pumped, too.

Pratt took to Facebook this week to express his enthusiasm for the upcoming fourth installment in the "Juassic Park" series, writing that he'd just finished watching the first three films and was happy to be part of the franchise.

Pratt went on to praise the script -- "awesome!" -- and his character -- so far unnamed, but "epic!" according to the actor -- while hinting that production would get underway soon. Director Colin Trevorrow previously described Pratt's part as "a classic hero in a very modern context. ... He's the guy who will get you through the jungle alive."

It's cool to see an actor get so amped up over an upcoming project, though we wouldn't expect anything less from the affable Pratt.

"Jurassic World" roars into theaters on June 12, 2015.
