Netflix has debuted the official trailer and interactive site for upcoming kids’ action-comedy Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous — the first animated adaptation of Michael Crichton’s iconic sci-fi tale. In the spot, we meet our intrepid young protagonists and the counselors of their disastrous Isla Nubar camp experience. The 8 x 22′ CG series produced by Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment, with animation by DreamWorks, premieres September 18.
Set against the timeline of the 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.
The series stars Paul-Mikél Williams as Darius, Jenna Ortega as Brooklynn, Ryan Potter as Kenji, Raini Rodriguez as Sammy, Sean Giambrone as Ben, Kausar Mohammed as Yaz, Jameela Jamil as Roxie and Glen Powell as Dave
Emmy- and Annie-nominated duo Scott Kreamer and Aaron Hammersley (Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness) are showrunners on Camp Cretaceous; exec producers are Steven Spielberg, Colin Trevorrow, Frank Marshall, Scott Kreamer, Aaron Hammersley and Lane Lueras.
Simultaneous with the trailer launch, the show’s official interactive website also went live — giving fans the chance to experience a behind-the-gates look at Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous: The brand new state of the art adventure camp is waiting to be explored at CampCretaceous.com, where visitors can tour the campgrounds, get up close with dinosaurs and, as Mr. DNA says, experience the wonders of science!
Once inside, checkout the tree top cabins, the incredible zipline and pop into the genetics lab located deep in the jungle of Isla Nublar. Time your visit correctly and you might catch the rare moment a dinosaur egg hatches. The site is filled with exciting first looks inside Camp Cretaceous. From listening into ranger communications across the island to getting a glimpse of top secret files on Dr. Wu’s computer, there is so much for Jurassic World fans to explore as a family including easter eggs, games and downloadable activities.
