Colin Trevorrow reveals how the world has changed since the events of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom in the awesome new short-film Battle at Big Rock
Whether you liked it or loathed it, J.A Bayona’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom succeeded in sparking the philosophical debate of whether dinosaurs and man could truly coexist. The moral argument had been touched upon during the events of the original Jurassic Park and was an instrumental theme behind the story of the entire franchise. The moral debate of humanity playing God and tampering with natures balance was an intricate part of Michael Crichton’s splendid novel but it wasn’t until the finale of Fallen Kingdom that the prospect of realising the folly of humanity’s abuse truly came to fruition.
The finale of Fallen Kingdom changed the game for the franchise when young Maisie opened the gates of Lockwood Estate and released the surviving dinosaurs into our world. Not only did behemoths like the Tyrannosaurus Rex and the Carnotauurs manage to escape, but a plethora of herbivores also made the break for freedom. With all these dinosaurs unleashed upon our unsuspecting world what repercussions will await us when Colin Trevorrow returns to the director’s chair in 2021 for his untitled Jurassic World finale?
Thankfully, the wait won’t be as arduous as one might think, because last night, the director unleashed an all-new short film which reveals how the world has changed since that fateful day. Jurassic World: “Battle of Big Rock” begins with a young family coming together for their evening meal amidst reports of dinosaur encounters which are on the increase. Predator attacks are becoming common with major cities experiencing an influx of therapod carnivores.
Unfortunately for the family, dinosaurs don’t obey scheduled meal times and when a mother and calf Nasutoceratops wander into their trailer park … all hell breaks loose. Check it out below:
As divisive as Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was, Battle at Big Rock definitely hits all the right notes and has triggered my excitement for all things Jurassic World once again. The inclusion of the carnivorous Allosaurus is most refreshing, especially after it was criminally underused in Fallen Kingdom and the use of the Nasutoceratops is sure to appease Ceratopsian enthusiasts everywhere. Unfortunately, this teaser will only compound the fact that Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World 3 is the better part of two years away. However, with the all-new Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous animated series set to hit Netflix sometime next year, at least we have some dino action to temper our appetite.
Jurassic World 3 is set to be unleashed on June 11th 2021.
