American cable channel FX aired the long rumored Jurassic World short movie Battle At Big Rock Sunday night, and you can watch it right now!
The existence of a new live action Jurassic Park/World project in production was silently talked about in the past year, with an outlet called Geek Ireland reporting on “Jurassic World 3” being filmed in Ireland, in January. But is filming on the sixth movie in the Jurassic Park franchise in 2019 not way too early if it is planned to come out in 2021?
The talk about the new live action project shifted gear when photos of toys with on the package “As seen in Battle At Big Rock” started to get around.

Universal however hit any online talk about the new live action project with a notice and take down, basically silencing the conversation. And with that, the credibility of said live action project was pretty much proven.
But when would it be released? Rumors started that Battle At Big Rock would be screened in front of an upcoming big Universal movie. The prime suspect: Fast & Furious spin-off Hobbs & Shaw. But the movie came and went and no Battle At Big Rock.
Then September 10 came around and Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow tweeted this…
