Return to ‘Jurassic World’ With the New Dinosaur-Filled Video Short ‘Battle at Big Rock’ — Watch!

People love their dinosaurs, and that point is driven home by the success of the five films in the Jurassic film series (three as part of Jurassic Park, two for Jurassic World) with a sixth on the way from producer Steven Spielberg. For anyone who saw the last film, 2018’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, that film ended with various prehistoric beasties being freed from the island they lived on (which had briefly been turned into a theme park), and escaping into the rest of the world. The real question was, what’s next?

The answer to that question will come in the form of Jurassic World III, which reunites Pratt and Howard and will be released in 2021. However, that film’s director, Colin Trevorrow, has now given us a taste of what’s to come with the short film Jurassic World: Battle at Big Rock, which nicely establishes what the new world landscape is like with humans having to share the planet with dinosaurs.

Some of that theme was dealt with in Fallen Kingdom, and for good reason as Christ Pratt explained: “We needed to expand what we’re doing in this film and it was designed as a trilogy. This is the connective tissue between Jurassic World on the island and Jurassic World on the world; this is how it went down. This is Pandora’s Box opening and what’s happening in this movie is we’re literally blowing up the island so that we won’t go back to it in the future. That’s a part of a very cherished Jurassic past, and now it’s bigger. It’s global. We’re talking about the expansion of science and what that deals with and how we deal with it as human beings. We can’t put the genie back in the bottle now.”
