Dinosaur fans will be happy to know that NCircle Entertainment has acquired the distribution rights to a brand new DVD series: Dino Dan, a live action/CGI series on Nick Jr. Dino Dan is a 10-year old boy who wants to be a paleontologist when he grows up. He's obsessed with dinosaurs (like many young boys!), but what grownups don't realize is that dinosaurs are EVERYWHERE, lurking around corners, fueling lots of fun adventures for Dan and his friends. He (and kids watching on TV) learn lots of dinosaur facts, such as:
•a Corythosaurus dinosaur had a large protective plate on top of its head.
•a Spinosaurus had bony rods on its back that held up a “sail” made of skin.
•a T-Rex could eat up to 500 pounds of meat in one bite
•a Brachiosaurus weighed up to 80 tons
•a Brachiosaurus could live up to one hundred years!
About the series
Dinosaurs never lose their appeal to kids of all ages – but what makes the “Dino Dan” series unique is that it was developed under the guidance of paleontologists at Canada's Royal Tyrrell Museum in Alberta. In fact, your readers may be interested to know that a real-life paleontologist at the museum named Dr. Don Henderson is the inspiration for the “Dino Dan” character!
About the DVD:
The “Dino Dan – Dino Trackers” DVD contains five adventure stories featuring a boy nicknamed Dino Dan (played by Jason Spevack). He’s a curious 10-year-old who imagines there are real dinosaurs living all around him – but only he can see them! The DVD’s interactive bonus content adds to the enjoyment. It is priced at $12.99 suggested retail.
