The first two Jurassic World films might not be that much of a critical success, however, the franchise has earned a whole lot at the box office, and it looks like Netflix wants in on the prehistoric franchise.
Partnering together with DreamWorks Animation, Netflix is planning to launch an animated spinoff series for the Jurassic World series. DreamWorks just made the announcement this morning, saying that it plans to launch the spinoff series titled Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous sometime in 2020.
The news might not come as much of a surprise to fans who've been following the Jurassic World news thread closely. There has long since been a rumor running online saying that Netflix was going to work on a TV series based on Jurassic World.
Camp Cretacious is set to take place in the same universe and timeline as the first two films in the Jurassic World franchise. However, it is unclear whether any of the lead stars of the films like Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and B.D. Wong, will reprise their roles and voice acts in the series.
DreamWorks also released an official synopsis for Camp Cretaceous. Check it out down here:
"Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceousfollows 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. But 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."
According to the studio, the series is going to be more family oriented than the original Jurassic World movies. It'll also add to the overall mythos of the franchise.
Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous is set for release on Netflix sometime in 2020.
