DreamWorks Animation's Action-Packed Dinotrux Barges Onto Netflix As New Original Series For Kids

LOS ANGELES and BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., June 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- DreamWorks Animation and Netflix are bulldozing back to a prehistoric world of epic proportions with the debut of Dinotrux , an all-new action-packed original series featuring hybrid dinosaur-construction characters who are set to build and battle over three seasons, beginning in Spring 2015.  Based on Chris Gall 's award-winning book series, the first of which was named by Publisher's Weekly as 2009's Children's Book of the Year, DreamWorks Animation's Dinotrux is set in a fantastical world filled with lava-flowing volcanoes, lush forests and a megaton cast of loveable characters who are half-dinosaur, half-mechanical construction vehicle and all fun!

Dinotrux follows the adventures of two unlikely best friends as they navigate the adrenaline-filled mechanical domain ruled by stunning oversize creatures like Tyrannosaurus Trux, Scraptors and Tow-a-constrictors.  The show's heroes are Ty, a massive and fiercely loyal T-Trux with a big vision for a new world, and his best buddy Revvit, a razor-smart Reptool who is the engineering brains of the operation.  Together they build an incredible world of epic scope populated by groups of Dinotrux and Reptools, each with their own personality and skill set as they unite to defend their community from the biggest and baddest of them all, D-Strux, as he threatens to destroy everything they've built.

"Netflix continues to be an incredible partner and we're excited to work with them once again to get this completely original series into the homes of families around the globe," said Margie Cohn, Head of Television at DreamWorks Animation.  "This is a property that creates a new world with stunning visuals and fantastic action combined with great characters and comedy.  In Dinotrux, the biggest guy and the smallest creature become best friends and through their unique partnership evolve their primitive world - a theme that we think will resonate with kids."

"DreamWorks has a proven track record of creating beloved characters and we're excited to be able to bring the Dinotrux friends to our members," said Cindy Holland, Vice President Originals Content at Netflix.  "We know kids and families love discovering new series to watch together and we're pleased to continue to expand our show line-up from DreamWorks."

Dinotrux is the latest in the line-up of Netflix original kids series from DreamWorks Animation, which debuted Turbo FAST in 2013 and recently announced a trio of new shows for 2014 including King Julien , Puss in Boots, and VeggieTales in the House as well as DreamWorks Dragons, which is set to air in 2015.
