An Animated 'Jurassic Park' Spin-Off Is Coming to Netflix
Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, an animated series due on Netflix in 2020, is the latest offering in the Jurassic Park franchise.
Details on the DreamWorks Animation series are sparse, but we know the story follows a group of six teenagers who win a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to join an adventure camp on Isla Nublar.
Clearly not learning from the mistakes of past generations (come on!), the group trek to the other side of the island where dinosaurs lurk. As Netflix says, the group must go from "strangers to friends to family if they're going to survive".
Scott Kreamer and Lane Lueras will be the showrunners and executive producers of Camp Cretaceous, with Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, and Colin Trevorrow also executive producing. The show will drop on Netflix next year, ahead of the sixth instalment in the Jurassic Park franchise due for 2021.
Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous is the result of a five-year deal between DreamWorks by NBCUniversal and Netflix which has also seen She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, the Tales of Arcadia trilogy, and The Boss Baby: Back in Business, hit the streaming service. An animated Fast & Furious series is also in the works.
Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous hits Netflix in 2020.
