Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous
Jurassic Park is a fan favorite everywhere. We have had the last two films to bring the franchise to the current year. Today it would seem that it is expanding even more with this latest announcement from Netflix. Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous is an animated series that has the backing of DreamWorks Animation who decided a partnership with the streaming giant was ideal for this project. Trailer below.
Scott Kreamer (Pinky Malinky) and Lane Lueras (Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny) will serve as showrunners and executive producers of the series, with Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, and Colin Trevorrow also executive producing. The show will hit Netflix in 2020, ahead of the third installment of the Jurassic World franchise in the summer of 2021.
According to Variety:
It 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.
As you can see from the teaser we do not see the teen heroes. We do get to see a Raptor who looks very real like on the screen. There is a clear dinosaur threat at Camp Cretaceous. It makes us wonder though, who in their right mind would think to put a summer camp next to or in a Jurassic Park full of hungry Dino’s that are ready to feed on anything.
We have not heard rumors or confirmation yet if we will see Jurassic Park/World stars such as Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard or Jeff Goldblum make an appearance. It would make for a better series if they did. What do you think about this upcoming animated series? Let’s discuss.
