Netflix and DreamWorks Animation announces Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous: An Animated Series Dropping in 2020!


Jurassic fans strap in – we have got some exciting news today which is bound to add to the longevity of a franchise which we all already know and love! Thanks to our friends Arjan Bos and Tim from Collect Jurassic, we have got the first details of a brand-new Jurassic property – Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous.

Update: Check out the teaser trailer below:

The Netflix announcement detailed the following:

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.

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous builds on a successful five-year relationship between DreamWorks Animation and Netflix that has seen 18 original series debut on the 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 NBCUniversal’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. DreamWorks Animation has a number of additional series slated to debut on Netflix in 2019, including Archibald’s Next Big Thing from executive producer Tony Hale and the highly anticipated Fast & Furious animated series

This information was released alongside a new piece of concept artwork – which shows us the iconic ‘Jurassic’ gates but with a bit of a twist. Here we have the Jurassic World branding – but in an older Jurassic Park style, complete with the iconic red and yellow colour scheme from the first trilogy of films. Alongside this we can see the iconic Jurassic Park red logo used on the ‘Camp Cretaceous’ branding – suggesting that this brand-new cartoon flick is likely to delve more into the deep-rooted nostalgia that we all know and love for the original franchise. Also, of note in this piece of artwork is the presence of Pteranodons etched into the wood work of the gates – suggesting the much more cartoony nature of this piece.

Whilst we don’t have any anymore details as of yet, the show sounds exciting – giving off an Eric Kirby survivor kind of vibe from Jurassic Park III but set on Isla Nublar instead. Whilst we see some of the original branding within our first piece of artwork, how present this will be within the final piece we will have to wait and see – as we could very easily see a return to iconic locations such as the Innovation Centre – which would bring with them their own branding too. Regardless of the details we have so far, it is set to say that this sounds incredibly exciting – with the artwork looking incredibly high-quality.

I am very excited to see Jurassic branching out and continuing to expand through new mediums whilst ceasing new opportunities. This is a brand which has a lot of appeal – so I am hopeful that this will be the start of incredibly healthy brand growth. As long as the quality we have come to expect from ‘Jurassic’ is there, then I am excited to see what the future may hold.

Thanks for checking this piece out – please do let us know your comments on this brand-new show! And, again, a massive thanks to Tim and Arjan for making us aware of this news. It’s great to be able to share our excitement with other community members!
