Netflix Reveals ‘Jurassic World’ Animated Series for 2020

The five-year partnership between Netflix and Dreamworks Animation will next deliver Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous sometime in 2020.

In this animated series a group of six teenagers will venture to the opposite side of Isla Nubar where the events of Jurassic World took place. There they’ll land at a new adventure camp — Camp Cretaceous, naturally — where dinosaur shenanigans will ensue.

Showrunners Scott Kreamer (Pinky Malinky) and Lane Lueras (Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny) are positioning the series as a survival tale where the six teenage strangers must band together in order to survive. Jurassic World movie stalwarts Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, and Colin Trevorrow are all on board to produce.

The obvious question to arise from this announcement is what tone this series will strike. It’s aimed at kids so gore is likely off the table. At the same time there will be dinosaurs trying to eat the teenagers.

Trevorrow shared the only official hint about tone when he mentioned on Twitter that Camp Cretaceous is best seen as an old Saturday morning cartoon with a giant bowl of cereal.

Netflix included an unusual trailer with the announcement that begins with a 30-second teaser featuring a velociraptor and then ends with four and a half minutes worth of Jurassic World recalls. Taken at face value Blue is on the table to appear in Camp Cretaceous at some point.

Dreamworks and Netflix have found success after inking their 5-year deal coming off of Tales of Arcadia. Thus far She-Ra and the Princesses of Power and a Boss Baby spin-off series have been well received. A Fast and Furious animated series is currently in development with Vin Diesel executive producing.
