With another Jurassic World sequel due out in 2021, we’re apparently getting spinoffs as well. Director Colin Trevorrow just revealed that he filmed a secret live-action short, and it’s airing on FX on Sunday.

Trevorrow shared a poster for the short film on Twitter Tuesday afternoon along with a classic Jurassic Park quote from Jeff Goldblum’s Ian Malcolm. Titled Battle at Big Rock, it may continue on from the events of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which ended with (wouldn’t you know it!) a bunch of new dinosaurs escaping.

Directed by Trevorrow and written by Emily Carmichael (Pacific Rim: Uprising), it stars André Holland (Moonlight), Natalie Martinez (The I-land), and child actors Melody Hurd and Pierson Salvador. We don’t know what the short is about, but these could be some new cast members for Jurassic World 3.

There’s also an animated Jurassic World spinoff series coming to Netflix next year, for anyone who’s craving even more dinosaur content in the wait between movies.
