What You Need To Know:

Netflix’s animated series JURASSIC WORLD: CHAOS THEORY focuses on Darius Bowman, paleontologist and member of the Nublar 6 Group from CAMP CRETACEOUS. Darius is hunting the allosaurus that killed his friend. His other friend, Ben, shows up just in time to help Darius fight off a pack of velociraptors. Eventually, Darius becomes convinced someone’s out to get the remaining members of the Nublar 6. Can he and Ben connect with their friends and crack the code as to why they’re being targeted, including who’s behind it?

JURASSIC WORLD: CHAOS THEORY is well done. It picks up several years after CAMP CRETACEOUS, the previous animated JURASSIC WORLD series. The animation in CHAOS THEORY is as good as the first series, with excellent voice acting and a compelling story. The plot has a good pace where clues lead to indications of a dark conspiracy. The first three episodes have a light moral, redemptive worldview. They promote truth and sacrificial love. However, JURASSIC WORLD: CHAOS THEORY has some evolutionary assumptions and strong action scenes involving scary dinosaurs. So, MOVIEGUIDE® advises caution for older pre-teenage children.

More Detail:

In Netflix’s animated series JURASSIC WORLD: CHAOS THEORY, Darius Bowman, paleontologist and member of the Nublar 6 Group from CAMP CRETACEOUS, is on a hunt for the Allosaurus that killed his close friend. Working through these issues, he’s isolated himself from friends and family. Then, his friend, Ben, another CAMP CRETACEOUS survivor, shows up just in time to help Darius fight off a pack of velociraptors. Ben mentions that he believes he’s being followed but can give no real proof that this is so. However, as the two travel together to try and warn their friends of what may be happening, Darius becomes convinced that someone is out to get the remaining members of the Nublar 6. Can they connect with their friends and crack the code to why they are being targeted and who is behind it?

JURASSIC WORLD: CHAOS THEORY is well made. It picks up several years after CAMP CRETACEOUS, the previous animated JURASSIC WORLD series, ended. An older Darius searches for the allosaurus that allegedly killed his friend, Brooklynn, a member of the Nublar 6 Group. The animation in CHAOS THEORY is as good as the first series. The voice acting remains excellent. Also, the ongoing story is compelling.

The second series draws in viewers with the revelation that a Nublar 6 survivor was later killed and with the hunt for the truth that Darius and Ben pursue. The plot has a good pace where clues lead to clearer indications of a dark conspiracy regarding the velociraptor attacks. However, this series, though aimed at children with a Y7 rating, is certainly not child-friendly.

The first three episodes of JURASSIC WORLD: CHAOS THEORY has a moral, redemptive worldview. The characters search for the truth in the face of great danger and demonstrate self-sacrificial love. This is a bit inconsistent with the materialistic assumptions of evolutionary theory that have plagued the JURASSIC PARK franchise from its 1993 big screen debut to this 2024 animated series. It’s interesting that several of the main characters are open to the chance that conspiracy theories might have validity. This brings in an interesting narrative layer where someone is trying to suppress the truth about the Nublar 6 and what happened to one of them.

This is doubly interesting since evolution scientists have been trying to suppress the truth about dinosaurs, their age and the age of the earth for years. Just recently, Dr. Jay Wile cited Dr. Armitage from the Dinosaur Soft Tissue Research Institute (DSTRI), which shows that evolutionary assumptions are clearly inconsistent with what the scientific data supports. Dr. Armitage was actually fired from California State University at Northridge for daring to challenge the evolutionary narrative and subsequently won a lawsuit against the school allowing him to fund more of his own groundbreaking research on dinosaur soft tissue. Even so, other scientists, including old earth creation scientists, don’t accept Wile and Armitage’s conclusions about the impossibility of the preservation of soft tissue in dinosaur fossils for millions of years. So, the debate rages.

That said, the Y7 rating for JURASSIC WORLRD: CHAOS THEORY is not accurate. For example, the first three episodes of Season One feature scary dinosaur attacks that would make many adults jump, plus many other scenes of peril and violence. The episodes also have images of dead bodies, though they’re devoid of blood, gore and creature carnage. There’s also some frank discussion about the death of a beloved character. At the very least, a TV-PG is warranted for chaos theory since it’s clear that “parental guidance” is necessary. Whether this is just a mistake, or further proof of the desensitization of American culture, is an open question, however.

At any rate, MOVIEGUIDE® advises caution for older pre-teenage children for JURASSIC WORLD: CHAOS THEORY.
