Netflix is launching a new animated series set within the Jurassic World franchise called “Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous.” The series is part of an existing partnership between Netflix and DreamWorks Animation, and the video streaming service released a first-look trailer for the new show on social media.
“Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous” is an animated action-adventure series set to debut globally on Netflix in 2020. Taking place within the same timeline as the 2015 blockbuster film, “Jurassic World,” the Netflix original series is inspired by the multi-billion-dollar franchise from Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment.
The story of “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. Things pick up when dinosaurs wreak havoc across the island, and 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. Fans of the dino franchise can watch the all-new teaser trailer below.
Scott Kreamer (Pinky Malinky) and Lane Lueras (Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny) serve as showrunners and executive producers on the new show. The series is executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, and Colin Trevorrow. Zack Stentz serves as consulting producer.
“Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous” is the latest release from the five-year relationship between DreamWorks Animation and Netflix. Over the years, the partnership launched 18 original series on 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 NBC Universal’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.
Future DreamWorks Animation projects include “Archibald’s Next Big Thing” from executive producer Tony Hale and the highly anticipated “Fast & Furious” animated series.
