Those films were preceded by the blockbusters “Jurassic Park,” “The Lost World: Jurassic Park,” and “Jurassic Park III.”

“Camp Cretaceous” is the latest in a long line of DreamWorks Animation projects to debut on Netflix. DreamWorks Animation and Netflix signed an expansive first look deal for animated series based on Universal Pictures properties, as well as original and acquired IP, following the acqusition of DreamWorks by NBCUniversal. Among the shows the studio has debuted on Netflix are “She-Ra and the Princesses of Power,” the “Tales of Arcadia” trilogy, and “The Boss Baby: Back in Business.” Upcoming projects include an animated “Fast & Furious” series.
