Announced yesterday, Jurassic World: Battle at Big Rock is an all-new short film that’s airing on FX this Sunday night, September 15. It was directed by Colin Trevorrow and co-written by Trevorrow and Emily Carmichael, starring André Holland, Natalie Martinez, Melody Hurd and Pierson Salvador. Want to know more? Collider got the full scoop today.
For starters, we’ve learned that Battle at Big Rock will run 8-minutes long, set one full year after the dinosaurs have been unleashed upon the world at the end of Fallen Kingdom.
Trevorrow details, “It’s about a family on a camping trip to Big Rock National Park, about 20 miles from where the last film ended. There have been a few sightings, but this is the first major confrontation between dinosaurs and humans.”
He also notes that the short will feature a “giant animatronic dinosaur.” Trevorrow adds, “There are two species we’ve never seen before. The Nasutoceratops, which is a beautiful herbivore that feels like a Texas Longhorn. And the Allosaurus, one of the most iconic dinosaurs of all time. This one was a juvenile in the last movie. She’s all grown up now.”
