In celebration of the new film Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Blue, the popular raptor trained by Chris Pratt's character, Owen Grady, is now on display at Universal's Islands of Adventure.

According to Universal, guests can now come face-to-face with the "speedy thief" – that's what velociraptor means – at the "Raptor Encounter" and get a picture with the lifelike carnivore.

Blue is also being brought to life at Universal Studios Hollywood.

The newest film in the franchise, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, comes out June 22.
