Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous Revives the Franchise's Most Ruthless Dinosaur

Saturday, November 13, 2021

The Season 4 trailer for Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous reveals the show is bringing back the franchise's most ruthless dino - no, not the T-Rex.

In the Jurassic Park and Jurassic World movies, many people consider the bloodthirsty T-Rex the most savage dinosaur InGen created. It wreaked major havoc in the first two movies, hunting people down in Isla Nublar and then San Diego after being captured. It's also been quite a threat in Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, but as the Season 4 trailer now confirms, a dino that's deadlier and way more ruthless than the T-Rex is going to return.

This is none other than the Spinosaurus, who appears at the end of the Camp Cretaceous trailer. Season 3 ended with the teens on a boat, sailing away from Isla Nublar and the remains of the destroyed camp, only for it to now be revealed a Mosasaurus will attack and shipwreck them. However, as showrunner Scott Kramer explains, it's not Isla Sorna, aka Site B, that they end up on.

It's a new, more lethal island with robot dinos and a lot more threats, including environments that may be artificial hunting grounds or experimental areas. As the Camp Cretaceous clip winds down, the Spinosaurus rushes the kids to eat them in a desert setting, leaving fans shocked, as it hasn't been seen since Jurassic Park III.

In that film, the Spinosaurus was quite a menace, hunting Dr. Alan Grant and Eric Kirby's family down, including the mercenaries hired to rescue the boy. The beast proved to be a behemoth, attacking planes, chomping on soldiers and even using its roar to fell a plane from a tree so it could eat the folks inside. To make it worse, it marked the humans and followed them around the entire movie, stealthily stalking its prey in a way the T-Rex never could. In addition, it swims and lurks in rivers, so that's a huge advantage.

And to top it off, when it faced the T-Rex to see which was Site B's true alpha, the Spinosaurus brutally snapped its neck, claiming its place atop the food chain. This creates an enticing prospect of a rematch, as this new island has a T-Rex, albeit a wounded one.

That said, what's surely going to be in focus this season is the teens trying to flee from the Spinosaurus. It's great at locking scents and the Camp Cretaceous trailer suggests it's going to be pursuing them at all costs. It leaves folks wondering if this is the same one that got brought over from Site B because that creature ended up running away due to a petrol leak and a fire started by Alan's team in the river so they could escape.

Hopefully, there aren't more because one's already a handful, but either way, Darius and co. will have to be resourceful, as the Spinosaurus is quicker, sneakier and a lot more vengeful than the T-Rex and other dinos they've encountered.

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous Season 4 premieres Dec. 3 on Netflix.
