Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous – The DVDfever Review – Netflix

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous is a new Netflix animation where the dinosaurs are now in, perhaps, the best place possible – running around an adventure camp full of annoying children.

However, although one would expect to pay handsomely for a ticket to be dino-lunch, Darius (Paul-Mikél Williams) is trying to beat a videogame full of them, and defeat the T-Rex, so he can win a free trip to Jurassic World’s latest venture, Camp Cretaceous. Will he manage it? Well, if he didn’t, then it would be a short series. However, that’s not a spoiler because it’s basically the equivalent of finding a Golden Ticket into Willy Wonka’s factory.

Similarly, the children are also a rag-tag bunch of different types with no two of them the same. Darius is obsessed with dinosaurs, Kenji Kon (Ryan Potter) is the show-off and self-confessed alpha male type, while Brooklynn (Jenna Ortega) is the ‘social media influencer’ of the group. The camp counsellors include Roxie, portrayed by ex-Radio 1 DJ and now, somehow, actress, Jameela Jamil. In 2010, she once injured herself on the set of a concert – where she co-presented with Olly Murs – where she slipped and fell on her face, causing her to lose a tooth, smash her nose, break her elbow and get a concussion.

Everyone was deeply upset… that Olly Murs didn’t break her fall. It might’ve stopped him grinning inanely for five minutes.

But back to this, and along the way, the kids get into some mild danger, but you know that it won’t be long before everything’s moderately fine again. I’ve only watched a couple of episodes because, as an adult, that’s enough, but I would bet my house on this CGI animation NOT featuring people being graphically eaten as there are, to a point, in some of the films. Similar to Wizards: Tales Of Arcadia, the CGI is decent and while adults will feel like they’re watching partially rehashed scripts of the films but with 90% of it featuring the kids running around, kids under 10 will love it.

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous is not available to pre-order on Blu-ray or DVD, but is on Netflix from Friday September 18th.
