DreamWorks Animation is producing a new animated action-adventure series, set within the same world and timeline as the 2015 Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment Jurassic World film, for Netflix.
Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous tracks a group of six teenagers who were chosen for a once-in-a-lifetime experience at a new adventure camp, but the campers are stranded and have to learn to survive when dinosaurs take over.
It’s executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall and Colin Trevorrow, with Scott Kreamer (Pinky Malinky) and Lane Lueras (Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny) serving as showrunners. Zack Stentz is the consulting producer.
Debuting in 2020, it is part of DreamWorks ongoing multi-year agreement with Netflix to produce animated kids and family programming, under which it has already launched 18 original series. Some of these shows include She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, Spirit Riding Free and the Tales of Arcadia trilogy. Jurassic World isn’t the the only TV series DreamWorks has re-imagined based on a Universal title. The Fast & Furious animated series is premiering later this year.
The Jurassic World franchise has grossed US$5 billion worldwide, according to DWA, with the third installment heading to theaters in 2021.
