It’s no secret that Jurassic Park nearly had a cartoon – over the summer William Stout revealed many pieces of concept art, which unsurprisingly went viral. Despite the great artwork, and the franchise lending itself to the concept perfectly, the cartoon was sadly canceled in the early stages of production. Other than these glimpses of concept art, little was known about the mysterious series. Until now.
1993: Hot off the heels of Jurassic Parks success, the now defunct Universal Cartoon Studios began to explore a continuation of the story via an animated series. The series was meant to be tonally similiar to the film, utilizing an art style that appropriately matched. The story revolved around the essential characters and dinosaurs of Jurassic Park, alongside many fun new additions – drawing further story inspiration not only from the film, but from the book.
Over the month, we will be exclusively revealing details about the cartoon straight from the story bible, including a breakdown of its planned episodes. We’re thrilled to be celebrating #JurassicJune in such a fun way, and we hope you’re as excited as us.
Stay tuned, we’ve got a wild month planned!
