Netflix Announces Animated Series ‘Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous’ Coming In 2020
DreamWorks Animation today announced ‘Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous‘, an animated action-adventure series, is set to debut globally on Netflix in 2020 as part of an ongoing multi-year agreement with Netflix to produce original animated kids and family programming.
Set within the same timeline as the 2015 blockbuster film, ‘Jurassic World’, the Netflix original series 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… (because a kids camp on an island filled with dinosaurs seems like a TOTALLY good idea!.. Although, weirdly, not out of character for the people running the park…) But when dinosaurs wreak havoc across the island (of course!), 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.
‘Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous‘ Season 1 will premiere on Netflix UK and worldwide in 2020.
