DreamWorks Animation and Netflix have announced a new animated series called Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous.
The series is part of an on-going multi-year deal between the streaming giant and Comcast-NBCUniversal (DreamWorks’ parent company).
The animated show takes place in the same timeline as the 2015 film. According to Netflix:
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) will be showrunners and executive producers on the show. The series is executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, and Colin Trevorrow with Zack Stentz serves as consulting producer.
DreamWorks and Netflix have worked on 18 original series so far, 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.
In addition to Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous coming next year, this year DreamWorks will debut Archibald’s Next Big Thing from executive producer Tony Hale and the previously announced Fast & Furious animated series.
The next entry in the Jurassic World series is set to debut on June 11th, 2021.
