All good? Now then; here's the next in my ongoing Blog-posts on Jurassic Park IV...
Which now has an official title: JURASSIC WORLD. And a snazzy new logo to go with it:

"Fabulous!" (As the mother at the beginning of The Lost World remarked!)
The new title was revealed with the logo and I feel that this was a great way to do it. And, to be honest; I rather very much like it!
It gives it what we're familiar with and, by word alone, aims to expand what we already know. And that's always a good sign for a follow up. And by swapping 'Park' for 'World', it also gives us a sense that this is a new step entirely for the series. Almost a reboot (which thank goodness it isn't). Perhaps giving us the potential to have a new sub-series; we've had the 'Parks', so now we're getting the 'Worlds'. Also reflected in the blue hue, instead of the usual red.
Also, by the title alone, we are given the possibility to imagine that the Dinosaurs may not just be restricted to Isla Nublar or Las Cinco Muertes (something I touched on in a previoues post). It also opens up the potential for new human characters...However much we'd love Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum to reunite!
Of course this isn't the first time the term 'World' has appeared on a Jurassic title. In fact, it could be said that the notion of expanding the universe was a key driving force for The Lost World: Jurassic Park.
But it still carried 'Park'. And #IV has basically condensed it down into a nice, snappy title. Hopefully the Dinos will be just as snappy! I'm sure they will be; the director seems to know what he's doing:
Jurassic World has a release date of June 12th, 2015. Actually really looking forward to it, now!
UPDATE: 18th December, 2013 - Phil Tippett, the original Jurassic Park Dinosaur supervisor is returning for Jurassic World! As you can imagine; am VERY pleased about this! ^^ (Announcement here!)
