PBS KIDS’ popular show DINOSAUR TRAIN is launching its second season this week, and to kick it off, PBS KIDS is airing a one-hour DINOSAUR TRAIN movie special called Dinosaur Big City. Monday August 22nd. That’s tomorrow people so find out what time your local airing will be because you do not want to miss Dinosaur Big City.
The premiere of Dinosaur Big City marks the start of season two of DINOSAUR TRAIN. From the world-renowned Jim Henson Company, the hit DINOSAUR TRAIN’s second season will focus on exploring the outdoors and natural phenomena, and will feature “Big Dinosaur Week” and a special based on the fan favorite “Dinosaurs A to Z” song. We were so excited to participate in a preview party for Dinosaur Train Big City. We had the opportunity to roll out the red carpet and enjoy some popcorn while watching our favorite dinosaurs. We even received cute little toys and party swag to help set the pre-historic party stage.
In Dinosaur Big City, kids join Buddy and his Pteranodon family as they journey on the Dinosaur Train with their theropod friends to the big Theropod Club Convention in Laramidia, the “Dinosaur Big City.” Along the way they meet Mayor Kosmoceratops and help King Cryolophosaurus overcome stage fright.Buddy and his Pteranodon family embark on a journey on the Dinosaur Train, gathering all their theropod friends together to travel to a really big Theropod Club Convention, which is being held in Laramidia, the “Dinosaur Big City.” Among the travelers is King Cryolophosaurus, a singing theropod who is more than a little nervous about giving a concert in front of his biggest audience ever in the Big City. Once the Dinosaur Train arrives in Laramidia, Buddy and the Pteranodon family explore the crowded “dinosaur metropolis.” At the Theropod Convention, the kids reunite with Annie Tyrannosaurus and her parents Delores and Boris, and they all meet the multi-horned mayor, Mayor Kosmoceratops. In the end, Buddy and Tiny help King Cryolophosaurus overcome his stage fright, and he wows a large dinosaur audience when he sings his new song, “Whole Lotta Theropods” at the Convention.
We love Dinosaur Train, I think all kids do. There is something that transcends time when it comes to watching and learning about dinosaurs. Just in case you do miss out on watching Dinosaur Big City on PBS you can buy it the next day. The movie will be released on DVD on August 23 by Paramount Home Entertainment. The DVD includes the Dinosaur Big City movie and four bonus episodes of DINOSAUR TRAIN, as well as interactive games, coloring pages, a dinosaur reference guide and information for parents. The DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $14.99 U.S./$15.99 Canada.
