Jurassic Park/World fans have more to look forward to as Netflix has revealed Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, a new animated series from DreamWorks.
I think my eyes nearly popped out of my head this morning when I saw the word that we’re getting a brand new animated series based on the Jurassic franchise. The original Jurassic Park series was a short-lived cartoon in the early 90s, but Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous will bring us to the modern age set within the same timeline as the Jurassic World film (not the sequel).
Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous follows a group of six teenagers chosen for a once-in-a-lifetime experience at a new adventure camp on the opposite side of Isla Nublar. But when dinosaurs wreak havoc across the island, the campers are stranded. Unable to reach the outside world, they’ll need to go from strangers to friends to family if they’re going to survive.
Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous builds on a successful five-year relationship between DreamWorks Animation and Netflix that has seen 18 original series debut on the service, including the Tales of Arcadia trilogy from Guillermo del Toro, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, Spirit Riding Free, and The Boss Baby: Back in Business. Following NBCUniversal’s acquisition of the studio, DreamWorks Animation and Netflix expanded their relationship to include first looks at animated series based on Universal Pictures properties as well as original and acquired IP. DreamWorks Animation has a number of additional series slated to debut on Netflix in 2019, including Archibald’s Next Big Thing from executive producer Tony Hale and the highly anticipated Fast & Furious animated series.
DreamWorks Animation is developing the series to release in 2020. Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, and Colin Trevorrow on board to produce, while Scott Kreamer (Pinky Malinky) and Lane Lueras (Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny) will be serving as showrunners. I’m so ready…What do you hope to see out of this series?
