DreamWorks' JURASSIC WORLD: CAMP CRETACEOUS Animated Series Coming To Netflix In 2020
DreamWorks Animation's new animated Jurassic World series on Netflix will take us to the other side of Isla Nublar where six teens attending an adventure camp are left stranded when all hell breaks loose.
As part of an ongoing multi-year agreement with Netflix, DreamWorks Animation is bringing a new Jurassic World animated series to the streaming service next year. Titled Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, the action-adventure series is set within the same timeline as the 2015 blockbuster film, but takes us to the opposite side of Isla Nublar where a group of six teenagers are left stranded following the chaotic dinosaur outbreak.
The official synopsis teases:
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 is being executive produced Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, and Colin Trevorrow, with Scott Kreamer (Pinky Malinky) and Lane Lueras (Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny) serving as showrunners and executive producers. It's unknown if any of the characters from the film franchise, like Owen or Clair, will cameo in the series, even if the voices are provided by similar-sounding actors and not the original cast.
Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous will debut exclusively on Netflix in 2020. In the meantime, DreamWorks Animation has a number of additional series slated for later this year, including Archibald’s Next Big Thing and a Fast & Furious animated series. DreamWorks Animation has already debuted 18 original series on Netflix and seems to be creating a solid foundation of child-oriented content for when Disney inevitably pulls much of its own original content for Disney+.
The third installment in the Jurassic World film will hit theaters on June 11, 2021.
