If you’ve seen Jurassic Park, Jurassic World, or any of the various sequels you’ll know that going to a theme park filled with dinosaurs is a bad idea. Unfortunately, people never learn, as we are about to discover in Netflix’s Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous.
Developed by DreamWorks Animation for the streaming service, Camp Cretaceous will follow six teenagers as they embark on a summer camp adventure at Jurassic World and, as is usual, things start to go wrong.
Netflix has announced a release date of September 18 and have confirmed that all 8 episodes of Camp Cretaceous will launch on the same day, so there will be no need to ration yourself to one episode per week. They have also released the first trailer for the show, take a look:
Not only is there a trailer for Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, there’s also an official synopsis.
“Set against the timeline of blockbuster film Jurassic World, Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous follows a group of six teenagers trapped at a new adventure camp on the opposite side of Isla Nublar. When the events of the film unfold and dinosaurs are unleashed across the island, each kid realizes their very survival rests on the shoulders of themselves and their fellow campers. Unable to reach the outside world, our six teens will go from strangers to friends to family as they band together to survive the dinosaurs and uncover hidden secrets so deep they threaten the world itself.”
I am intrigued by this, but it does look a bit more cutesy than I like my Jurassic Park to look and that last line of the synopsis has me worried. I’ll reserve judgment until September though, as I may be pleasantly surprised.
With this and the next movie on the way, it could be a good time to be a Jurassic fan. Be sure to let us know your thoughts on this trailer in the comments.
Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous launches on Netflix on September 18th.
