Spoiler warning! If you haven’t seen Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, this post may contain spoilers, so you may want to stop reading now.

Battle at Big Rock was just released and you can view it on YouTube (link embedded in this post). It’s a short Jurassic World film that basically shows a confrontation between two dinosaur species at a camp site and a family caught in the mix. It takes place after the end of Fallen Kingdom, where dinosaurs were released into the wild.

For someone who’s always loved dinosaurs and the entire Jurassic Park/World films, I like this. Stay around for the credits to see more! I’m looking forward to the next film, which I believe is coming in June 2021.

Let me know what you think about this!

Preamble: I unequivocally love Jurassic Park (not too odd there) and Jurassic World including the incredibly under rated Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom that I lovingly call Jurassic Park Monster Mansion (it embraces the camp to it's credit).

Meat off the bone: This short is a really tense look at life after Fallen Kingdom that sets up Jurassic World 3 quite well. The short really leans in to what made Jurassic Park 1 & Lost World work and reframes it in Jurassic World. If JW3 was a film just like this with real people surviving in Dino USA i'd be in. In fact, a TV series of this would be awesome... and I just got the thought that this might be a first step to that...

I agree w/ you about JP. I liked Fallen Kingdom, but I'm not sure how I'd rate it if I were to rate my favorite and least favorite JP movies. I guess there are things about all of them that I like (dinosaurs) and don't like. I saw the first movie when it was in the theater and waited FOREVER for it to come out on VHS. After it did, I watched it almost daily! Probably my biggest complaints w/ the movies has to do with some of the actors, I didn't like them nor their characters. There are more than a few of them to list. For example, the guy in JW that was an asshole and wanted the Raptors to be used for military purposes.

I like this short. It does remind me of JP2 when the trailer was knocked over by T-Rexes. I really have no idea how they're going to end the JW series. I guess some how they capture all the dinos or the dinos die off, I don't know. Blue is definitely my favorite Raptor!

I'm glad they put this short on YouTube for us to watch for free. It was supposed to be included in a movie (the new Calvin & Hobbs Fast & the Furious), but got delayed.
