Spin Master and Skybound Entertainment will bring the adventure series Super Dinosaur to Amazon Prime Video on Oct. 6. All of season one part one, including 13 30-minute episodes, will be available on the show’s launch day. Spin Master has also struck international broadcast deals with ABC Australia, Television New Zealand TVNZ, Discovery Latin America, iQIYI, and NOGA-Communications Israel.
In addition to the TV series, Spin Master and Skybound will launch a toy line featuring key characters from the world of Super Dinosaur this fall, available on Amazon in the U.S. and exclusively at Toys “R” Us in Canada.
Based on the Robert Kirkman and Jason Howard Skybound/Image comic book of the same name, Super Dinosaur follows 10-year-old genius Derek Dynamo and his T. rex best friend Super Dinosaur as they protect the planet against evil. The series is produced by Spin Master Entertainment and Skybound North/Wind Sun Sky, the Vancouver-based division of Skybound. Season one previously aired on Teletoon in Canada.
“Jason Howard and I created Super Dinosaur as something all kids would enjoy as much as our own kids do. In doing so, we were able to craft a world as immersive and engaging as the world of The Walking Dead … but for kids! Our partners at Spin Master have helped Skybound prepare this world for a mass audience, and I’m so happy this series has landed at Amazon where I know it will thrive,” says Robert Kirkman, creator of Super Dinosaur and The Walking Dead, and chairman at Skybound Entertainment.
