Skybound Entertainment and Spin Master are set to launch a toy line featuring characters from the world of “Super Dinosaur.”
The upcoming line of toys will be available on Amazon in the U.S. and exclusively at Toys ‘R’ Us in Canada. It was recently announced that the “Super Dinosaur” series will launch on Amazon Prime Video on Oct. 6. Along with the Amazon deal, Spin Master also inked international broadcast deals with companies including ABC Australia, Television New Zealand TVNZ, Discovery Latin America, iQIYI and NOGA-Communications Israel.
Based on the Robert Kirkman and Jason Howard Skybound/Image comic book, “Super Dinosaur” follows 10-year-old genius Derek Dynamo and his T-Rex best friend Super Dinosaur as they protect the planet against evil. Season one of the series previously aired on Teletoon in Canada.
“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, “Super Dinosaur” and chairman, Skybound Entertainment.
“Super Dinosaur” is a follow-up to Kirkman’s previous comic book-turned-TV show “The Walking Dead.” The AMC series has previously been licensed out to properties including video game “Players Unknown Battlegrounds.”
