DreamWorks creates new Jurassic World animated series for Netflix


Due out in 2020, DreamWorks has announced Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, an all-new animated series headed to Netflix.

Set during the events of the first Jurassic World, the show 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.

To hype up the series, DreamWorks has released a short teaser trailer:

Scott Kreamer (Pinky Malinky) and Lane Lueras (Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny) serve as showrunners and executive producers. The series is executive produced by franchise vets Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, and Colin Trevorrow. Zack Stentz serves as consulting producer.

While this is the first animated Jurassic Park series to be publicly announced, it’s far from the first intended. The ’90s saw two different attempts to deliver the property to the small screen. Escape from Jurassic Park was intended to bring the full experience of the franchise as a prime time animated series. Additionally, Hasbro’s Jurassic Park: Chaos Effect toyline was expected to receive an animated series of its own, but for whatever reason that didn’t happen.

In the years since then, Jurassic Park and its sequels have inspired a number of LEGO shorts and specials. Last year, this culminated in the NBC special The Secret Exhibit. A followup miniseries titled Jurassic World: Legend of Isla Nublar is expected to debut sometime this year.
