From multi-Emmy award-winning Sinking Ship Entertainment comes Dino Dana The Movie, an action-packed dinosaur adventure that follows 10-year-old Dana as she tries to solve dino experiment 901 – where are all the kid dinos? But before she can complete her experiment, Dana’s new upstairs neighbour Mateo finds her magical Dino Field Guide, which allows him to see dinosaurs in real life too. This discovery kicks off a prehistoric journey bigger than anything Dana has ever faced before. When Mateo is dino-napped by a T-Rex, who thinks he’s one of her babies, it’s up to Dana, her sister Saara, and Mateo’s older stepbrother Jadiel to get him back. Along the way, Dana and her friends will race through a stampede of Triceratops, take on a Spinosaurus, get beak to nose with a Quetzalcoatlus, and come to realize that family, whether human or Jurassic, is the most important quest of all.
