Jurassic World, the latest film in the Jurassic Park franchise, hasn’t exactly received stellar reviews. But if you want to take a look at the new setting without trudging to the cinema today, there’s another option: Minecraft.

Incredibly popular YouTuber, The Diamond Minecart aka DanTDM has created an episode set in a Minecraft recreation of the Jurassic World park.

The design featured in the video is based on the one in the film, because the entire clip is the product of a sponsorship deal between the YouTube star and the studio, Universal Pictures.

If you can get past his somewhat irksome narration, it’s a fun take on the new blockbuster, with its own adventure mixed in.
