The original Jurassic Park trilogy is returning to US Netflix in all its roaring glory on August 1.

The trio of dino movies is currently on NBCUniversal's streaming service Peacock, but will leave the service on July 31 and head to Netflix. If you haven't seen the trilogy, which includes 1993's Jurassic Park, 1997's The Lost World: Jurassic Park, and 2001's Jurassic Park 3 then you need to sit your butt down and watch it ASAP. 

The first Jurassic Park is a masterpiece, with giant dinosaur puppets used more often than CGI in a masterclass of practical effects. The story, based off the Michael Crichton novel, is sold with gusto by a cast that includes Laura Dern, Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum, Samuel L. Jackson, and Richard Attenborough. It'll have you glued to the seat of your Jurassic Park-themed Jeep - and it's highly quotable (seriously, good luck getting these lines out of your head).

And while the other two movies aren't as epic as the original, they're both great action films with star-studded casts. The Lost World sees Goldblum reprise his role as Dr. Ian Malcom alongside Julianne Moore and Vince Vaughan. Jurassic Park 3 brings Neill back as Allen Grant, who's roped into returning to the isle of dinos by Tea Leoni and William H. Macy. 

With Jurassic World 3: Dominion in production, and confirmation that Neill, Dern, and Goldblum will return with sizable roles, now's the time to head back to Isla Nubar and Isla Sorna. Spare no expense (or time), and let's watch some dinos eat people.

Jurassic World 3: Dominion was one of the first major productions to restart filming.
