Disney+ snags Dino Dana movie

Following its transactional release pivot this summer, Sinking Ship's mixed-media movie is headed to the streamer in LatAm.
November 30, 2020

Disney+ and Nat Geo Kids have picked up Sinking Ship’s mixed-media film Dino Dana the Movie to premiere in Latin America for the first time.

Nat Geo Kids has also acquired the third season, and renewed its license for seasons one and two. Disney+ has not released any details on when it will launch the dino-themed content yet.

Australian film distributor Odin’s Eye Entertainment brokered the film deal for the Toronto prodco. The 104 x 11-minute series and the 75-minute film are produced in association with Amazon Prime and TVOKids.

Dino Dana the Movie tracks a young palaeontologist as she learns about dinosaurs while saving her neighbor from a T-Rex.

These new deals come after Sinking Ship pivoted from a regular theatrical launch to a transactional release strategy for the movie. Due to the pandemic, Sinking Ship inked pay-per-view deals with theater chain Cineplex in North America and iTunes in the US, Kate Sanagan, the prodco’s head of sales and distribution, previously told Kidscreen.

The House of Mouse’s streamer has been making inroads in LatAm recently through a partnership with Brazilian streamer Globoplay to bundle the two SVODs together.
