'Jurassic World' Animated Kids Series Coming to Netflix
Netflix has announced that an animated kids series based on the Jurassic World franchise is coming to the streaming service in 2020.
Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous hails from executive producers Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, Scott Kreamer, Lane Lueras, and Colin Trevorrow and takes place during the same time as the 2015 Jurassic World film.
Jeff Goldblum takes time from filming 'Jurassic World' 2 and his upcoming TV sitcom with Danny DeVito to host Nat Geo's 'Explorer.'
"The animated series, set at the same time as the 2015 film, follows a group of teens at a new adventure camp where absolutely nothing goes wrong. Just kidding: dinosaurs," Netflix said on Twitter Monday alongside a teaser trailer that features a raptor running towards the camera.
Netflix also released on Twitter a teaser image featuring a group of teenagers standing in front of the opening gates of Camp Cretaceous at the Jurassic World park.
