With the 2015 release of “Jurassic World,” the “Jurassic Park” franchise has risen to the spotlight once again. The film’s sequel “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” was even the third highest grossing film of 2018. However, in the new Netflix series “Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous,” the franchise will take on a more kid friendly approach.
Taking place during the events of “Jurassic World,” a group of six teenagers are taking part in an adventure on the other side of Isla Nublar, the fictional Central American island where the dinosaurs are held. However, the dinosaurs soon begin to cause trouble for the campers and they are forced to band together and find a way to survive.
The series, which releases on September 18th, is aimed at kids ages 5 to 7 years old. Though the majority of the series is rated PG-13, this won’t be the franchise’s first foray in media aimed at children. A series “Lego Jurassic World” short films and television shows have been coming out since the release of “Jurassic World.”
“Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous” looks to be trying to appeal to this younger audience in time for the release of the next film in the franchise. Set to come out June 2021, “Jurassic World: Dominion” will merge the worlds of “Jurassic Park” and “Jurassic World” by having both new and old actors from the series work together as dinosaurs have been let loose across the whole world.
