Friday, September 20, 2019

New details have emerged about the latest offering in the Jurassic Park franchiseJurassic World: Camp Cretaceousand if you're a fan of the Jurassic flicks, we think you're going to love this.

The animated series, which is due on Netflix in 2020, 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.

A spokesperson for Netflix explained: "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."

Scott Kreamer and Lane Lueras, who created animated series Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny, will act as showrunners.

While Oscar-winning director Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, and Colin Trevorrow will executive producing the project.

When the show was initially announced in June, details on the DreamWorks Animation series were sparse but we do know that the series will drop on Netflix next year, ahead of the sixth instalment in the franchise, Jurassic World 3, due for 2021.

Earlier this week a new short film from Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow was released. The motion pictured called Battle at Big Rock takes place a year after the events of 2018's Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom.

The flick, which stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, ended with dinosaurs making a break for the outside world outside the confines of Isla Nublar.

And the eight-and-a-half-minute piece begins with a mother Nasutoceratops and her baby stumbling upon a campsite in Battle at Big Rock.

The herbivores don't pose much of a threat to the human family and the holiday they've wandered into. However, things take a dramatic turn when a carnivorous Allosaurus arrives and wreaks havoc.
