"Kids see the world differently than adults; they see the magic in science and dream about seeing real life dinosaurs. Dino Dana the series has always been about the incredible power of kids’ imaginations, and Dino Dana The Movie brings those imaginings to the big screen," says J.J. Johnson, co-writer, director and executive producer.
