How Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous Ties Into Fallen Kingdom's Most HORRIFIC Scene

Friday, June 25, 2021

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom's opening sequence connects to a horrific scene in the finale of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous' third season.

WARNING: The following contains spoilers for the third season of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, now streaming on Netflix.

One of the scariest aspects of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom came right out of the gates. A mercenary team sent by Dr. Henry Wu was attacked as they came to Isla Nublar to get the Indominus Rex DNA for Eli Mills' science team to use to create more experimental hybrids. It resulted in one operative, Jack, getting eaten as he fled from a T-Rex, not realizing that the Mosasaurus would be waiting to jump out of the water and chomp him to pieces. It was a pretty horrific scene that showed the new films were a bit more brutal. And now, with Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous' third season, we see how all this was set up.

This season adds more nuance to this exchange during a stormy night at Site A as Wu's come with another chopper to get his laptop back. It has InGen data he needs and this causes a chase where his chopper and goons track the kids down as they've stolen the machine to blackmail him.

As Darius and Co. run around the island, they encounter the T-Rex, who's quite hungry after the place has been left abandoned. This leads to a chase in the night that puts the T-Rex on a collision course with Jack. The kids flee and end up in a tower, trying to find resources to fight back, and there they watch the Fallen Kingdom opening scene unfold.

Ironically, the T-Rex they've evaded goes after Jack, and as he jumps onto the rope ladder hanging off this other chopper, he thinks he's escaped. Unfortunately, as he screams and laughs, the kids are totally terrified as they watch the Mosasaurus rise up and clamp down on him. It almost pulls the chopper down too but the guys escape with the genetic data, not caring for their fallen colleague.

In addition to the context given to that opening scene, Wu escapes with his own crew and insists that rather than chasing the kids down from the air, this helicopter needs to get to Eli as soon as possible. He doesn't want the boss knowing teens might have stolen his work and simply needs to start creating the new breed, the Indoraptor.

It's an intriguing sequence of events and shows how the kids influenced the films on the big screen, all while operating in the shadows. And to them, they realize that the humans and monsters we got in those films really are threats to their existence, which is why they're happy to steer clear of Wu and his squads of soldiers and get to Costa Rica.

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous stars Paul-Mikél Williams as Darius, Jenna Ortega as Brooklynn, Ryan Potter as Kenji, Raini Rodriguez as Sammy, Sean Giambrone as Ben and Kausar Mohammed as Yaz. Season 3 is now streaming on Netflix.
