Today Netflix announced a new Jurassic World animated series called Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous. The series, executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, Colin Trevorrow, Scott Kreamer and Lane Lueras, is set during the timeline of 2015’s Jurassic World. It follows of six “lucky” teenagers that have been “...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.” (Jurassic Outpost)
Taking into consideration the pattern we often see in the Jurassic franchise, it’s safe to assume that there is something shady going on with whoever is in charge of this “adventure camp”. Could they be using the kids as test subjects for yet another secret project? Maybe they’ll be put in a position like Owen Grady, where they have to rely on and work with trained dinosaurs during their stay at the camp, before something goes horribly, horribly wrong. Or perhaps the dinosaurs getting loose was apart of some twisted elaborate plan?
Obviously we won’t know until the show’s release. This is just me spit balling into the void. With so little known about the series as of right now, all we can do is eagerly await the next announcement or trailer. I’m pretty stoked. Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous is due to debut sometime in 2020. Stay tuned for future updates!
