Get ready to return to Isla Nubla. Again.
Netflix has ordered Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, an animated addition to the Jurassic Park franchise. In it, a group of teens head off to a new camp on the far side of Isla Nubla, the island home to the Jurassic Park theme park. But – surprise, surprise – something goes wrong and the six kids are stranded on the island with no way to contact the outside world and must contend with wild dinosaurs in order to survive.
You would think someone would have learned some lessons from all the times before?
Interestingly, this is being touted as in continuity with the film franchise, taking place somewhat concurrently with 2015’s Jurassic World reboot. I suppose that means at some point in the show’s future, these kids will either get off the island or have to deal with the volcanic eruption we saw in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Scott Kreamer (Pinky Malinky) and Lane Lueras (Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny) will serve as showrunners for the series, while Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, and director Colin Trevorrow are signed up as executive producers.
Netflix will premiere the series sometime in 2020. Jurassic World 3 is set to arrive in theaters on June 11, 2021.
