It's back to the park we go in this week's cartoon review with Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous. The new Dreamworks Animation series, now streaming on Netflix, takes a different approach to storytelling for the continuation of the late Michael Crichton's phenomenal franchise, powered by Universal. Rather than focusing on an elite team of adult trainers, scientists, and covert spies, this version makes their characters a little more kid-friendly ... even if the carnivorous dinosaurs and rampaging giants are as dangerous as ever. But how does the new animated series compare to the story we know so far? Tune in to find out!
Here's the official synopsis:
Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous follows 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. Scott Kreamer (Pinky Malinky) and Lane Lueras (Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny) serve as showrunners and executive producers. The series is executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, and Colin Trevorrow. Zack Stentz serves as consulting producer.
