How Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous Could Tie Into Dominion

Tuesday, January 26, 2021

With Netflix's Camp Cretaceous bridging the first two Jurassic World films, here's how Season 2 could tie into Dominion.

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous has filled in some big gaps as to what happened between 2015's Jurassic World and 2018's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, showing viewers what happened to Isla Nublar before volcanic activity destroyed the place. However, Jurassic World: Dominion director Colin Trevorrow, has said that elements from Camp Cretaceous, which he's an executive producer on, will connect to his film.

With that in mind, here are some of the revelations in Camp Cretaceous Season 2 that can be expanded on in Dominion.

More Dino Experiments

In the Jurassic World trilogy, Dr. Wu's team has conducted some sinister experiments, resulting in such beasts as Indominus Rex and the Indoraptor. Brooklynn's detective work in Camp Cretaceous clearly confirms Wu was running a lot more secret projects off the books, so those dinosaurs could have been shipped out before the island was destroyed. One experiment called E750 even broke free at some point.

Some of these experimental dinosaurs may have escaped into the rest of the world at the end of Fallen Kingdom. Their existences would pose a massive threat, as Owen, Claire, Dr. Grant and the other experts might not know how to deal with such hybrids. These creatures could also alter the entire food chain in major ways, which would have a huge impact on ecosystems across the world. Wu might even have experimented with flying or aquatic dinos, which would really make containment difficult, as they'd be a new breed of alphas.

A Shocking Sense Of Unity

In the Jurassic Park series, herbivores usually stick together and avoid carnivores. However, in Camp Cretaceous Season 2, Darius discovers a watering hole around which are both herbivores and carnivores. Both groups coexist without conflict, and this nearly brings Kenji to tears.

This indicates dinosaurs can live alongside one another and even -- potentially -- humans in the outside world. The entire event is the first sign dinosaurs might not be the threats they once seemed and that mankind might even be able to domesticate or tame them. Humanity can create certain conditions to achieve this peace, which will certainly be thought-provoking discussion when Ellie and Ian Malcolm come into the fray.

The Game Hunters

Camp Cretaceous Season 2 revealed Mitch, Tiff and Hap weren't eco-tourists, but from a fraternity of dino-hunters. They snuck onto Isla Nublar for trophies, and come Dominion, it'll be open season on the beasts. Owen and Claire could end up coming into conflict with these hunters, especially if someone tries to target Blue. This fraternity would be more aggressive than regular buyers, who simply wanted exotic animals for display in Fallen Kingdom, so it won't be an easy task to take them down.

This also ties into legislation and Claire's political views about people killing for sport. Authorities will have a tough time making the right choice on infestation and anti-extermination laws. These hunters did show Darius in Camp Cretaceous Season 2 that mankind can really be the nastier monster, but they might also be used to takedown dangerous or destructive dinosaurs. Dr. Grant and his scientists will have their work cut out, because not everyone cares about the sanctity of life and preserving dinos like they do.

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous is executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, Colin Trevorrow, Scott Kreamer and Lane Lueras, with Zack Stentz serving as a consulting producer. Seasons 1 and 2 are currently available to stream on Netflix.
