If you’re someone who is a big fan of the Jurassic Park franchise, animated shows or just dinosaurs in general, have we got some news for you. Netflix is teaming up with DreamWorks to bring you a new show that will tickle most people’s fancy. Or at least cause them to add it to their queue and forget about it days later. We are of course referencing Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous. Better yet, we have the shortest of short teasers for you. Take a look.

That certainly is a dino there, so things would appear to be on the up and up. For those who may want more though, here’s the official synopsis for the series:

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.

The interesting part of the above is where this fits in the pre-existing timeline. Given that dinosaurs are “wreaking havoc” (when are they not?), it could be assumed this takes place during the start of Jurassic World. That could be completely wrong and we likely won’t know more until a full trailer is released. It seems a little strange that the “life-like” dinosaurs are being replaced by “semi life-like” creations. They look fine, but in a sense it’s neutering the thing that made the films special, to begin with. There’s also the chance that the animated humans appear really weird, making the dinosaurs that much more realistic.

The only other bit of pertinent info is that Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall and Colin Trevorrow will executive produce. Meanwhile Lane Lueras and Scott Kreamer, of  Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness, are set as showrunners. There’s no set release date at the moment, outside of dropping on Netflix in 2020. Until we know more, here’s the colorful first poster for Jurassic Park: Camp Cretaceous, to keep you occupied.
