Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous Season 3 Easter Eggs and References
This article contains spoilers for Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous Season 3.

The third season of the Netflix and DreamWorks animated series Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous pits the teenaged main characters against the Scorpius rex, a hybrid dinosaur like nothing they’ve ever dealt with before. They successfully defeat her, while simultaneously thwarting an attempt by Dr. Henry Wu to retrieve his research on the hybrids and dealing with the emotional impact of leaving their new found family.

How Camp Cretaceous Connects to the Jurassic World Canon

How Camp Cretaceous Connects to the Jurassic World Canon
The following contains spoilers for Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous.

At first glance, Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous doesn’t seem to fit in with the violent PG-13 dinosaur rampage thrillers we’ve come to expect from the Jurassic Park franchise. Its comical and lighthearted approach to storytelling and character development, not to mention the fact that it is (rather beautifully) animated, makes it seem as though this was meant to be a spinoff franchise similar to Lego Jurassic World. But as the story of six teenagers beta testing Jurassic World’s new adventure camp attraction unfolds, it becomes clear that Camp Cretaceous is not only canon, but could introduce elements that may influence future plotlines.

Camp Cretaceous begins a few days before the events of Jurassic World, but even before the Indominus rex escapes and the timelines officially converge, there are tons of references to the movies. (I love that Mr.

DC Animation Is Developing Superman: Red Son Film and There Are Casting Details

We recently learned that the classic DC comic Batman: The Long Halloween is going to be getting a two-part animated film from Warner Bros. Animation. Well, now another classic DC comic story is reportedly in development.

According to Revenge of the Fans, DC is developing an animated adaptation of Mark Millar’s Superman: Red Son. This is another DC Comics story that fans have been wanting to see adapted for a long time. I’m not sure why it took so long, but at least it’s happening now!

For those of you unfamiliar with Red Son, it’s an Elseworld story that puts an interesting twist on the Superman mythology… what if Superman crash-landed in the Soviet Union instead of Kansas?

Here’s the official synopsis:

“Imagine a reality where the world’s most powerful super-being does not grow up in Smallville, Kansas – or even America, for that matter…

The Lonely Island’s Rejected Oscar Song Asks Why ‘Thor,’ ‘It,’ and More Don’t Get Nominated — Watch
For those who thought that last night’s Oscars telecast was lacking on the comedy side of things, here’s a glimpse of what could have been, courtesy of erstwhile comedy group The Lonely Island (Aka Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer).

Monday morning, the team behind such classic films as “Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping” — as well as one of the best Oscar musical moments in recent memory — shared on YouTube the rough storyboards for a proposed music video they say they were asked to write for this year’s Academy Awards ceremony.

“Unfortunately,” according to the video description, “It wasn’t chosen because it was ‘financially and logistically impossible,’ so for fun we thought we’d share the rough storyboards of what would have been a fully shot, star-studded music video of exorbitant cost. All vocals and visuals are temp, so please use your imagination and enjoy!
