WATCH: Trailer drops for Jurassic World animated series Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous

June 4th, 2019 by Marc Comments

After the news that it looks like original Jurassic Park stars Sam Neill and Laura Dern are likely returning to the franchise (here), I have a second Jurassic Park story tonight for you lovely people.

The second bit of news is that the film franchise is finally getting a spin-off (well, everyone has them these days) in the form of a multi-series CG animated series from Dreamworks and set for Netflix called Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous .

The synopsis is below, but it seems that once again, the park has another area that the powers that be deem safe and this time left teens stay at! No, really… and yes, we’re assuming things don’t go as planned.

Still, the animation in the trailer (below) looks superb, so I’ll definitely keep an eye out for this an hope it doesn’t turn out as pain-by-numbers as it sounds.

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.

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 Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, and Colin Trevorrow. Zack Stentz serves as consulting producer.

Check in to Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, an all-new animated series coming to Netflix in 2020.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
