Animaccord inked a deal with Spin Master and Skybound Entertainment to bring Super Dinosaur to new territories.

The company known for Masha and the Bear acquired the rights to distribute 26 episodes of the series across Russia, CIS, Eastern Europe, Baltic countries, MENA, Turkey, Italy, and France.

The deal also positions Animaccord to manage licensing for the Super Dinosaur brand in the same countries, with plans to develop consumer products and promotional campaigns to support the series. The company will also bring the Super Dinosaur apps, games, and YouTube experiences to audiences in the same regions.

Based on Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead) and Jason Howard’s (Trees) 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 now streaming on Amazon Prime Video in the U.S. Super Dinosaur is supported by a full range of toys from Spin Master that launched exclusively at Amazon in the U.S. and at Toys “R” Us Canada last fall.
