Jurassic World Camp CretaceousThe trailer for the new Netflix animated series Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous has landed, giving fans a glimpse at never-before-seen dinosaurs and exciting new plotlines. Pitched as a continuation of the Jurassic World story, the show promises expansion into new themes and adventures. A trailer can be viewed below.

Season one of the show, which is slated to debut on the VOD platform from 18th September, centres on five main characters enjoying a summer camp at the Jurassic World park. Set before, during and after the turbulent events of the feature Jurassic World film, which was released in 2015, the plot follows the five adventurous campers as the Indominus Rex breaks loose and causes havoc in the park. Newly released artwork gives fans plenty to look forward to, including bioluminescent new dinosaurs and no shortage of action.

According to the fan-site Jurassic Outpost, voice talent comes in the form of Paul-Mikél Williams (Westworld) as resident dinosaur expert Darius; Jenna Ortega (You) as Brooklynn; Ryan Potter (Big Hero 6: The Series) as Kenji; Raini Rodriguez (Bunk’d) as Sammy; Sean Giambrone (The Goldbergs) as Ben; and Kausar Mohammed (Silicon Valley) as Yaz. Jameela Jamil (Legendary) and Glen Powell (Top Gun: Maverick) play camp counsellors Roxie and Dave.

The 8-episode Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous series sees showrunners Scott Kreamer and Aaron Hammersly joined by Steven Spielberg – director of the original 1993 blockbuster – Colin Trevorrow, Lane Lueras and Frank Marshall, who all serve as executive producers.

This isn’t the first spin-off series based on the Jurassic World franchise; Lego Jurassic World: Legend of Isla Nublar, a 13-episode animated mini-series, premiered on CITV last September.
