Spin Master taps Animaccord as global distribution partner for new animated series Super Dinosaur

Spin Master has tapped the international media and licensing specialist, Animaccord, to distribute the first season of the Super Dinosaur – the entertainment company’s latest animated property – across a number of international territories.

26 episodes of Super Dinosaur will be distributed to Russia & CIS, Eastern Europe, Baltic countries, MENA, Turkey, Italy, and France. Animaccord will also manage and develop the property’s consumer products and promotional campaigns.

Super Dinosaur is the latest animated property to be developed by Spin Master in partnership with the multi-platform content company, Skybound Entertainment.

Animaccord is also on board to produce and distribute the IP’s apps and games, as well as replicate its successful experience in content management on YouTube, to release the official “Super Dinosaur” YouTube channels worldwide.

Based on a comic book series of the same name by Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead) and Jason Howard, the CGI action-adventure series for six- to 11-year-olds follows 10-year-old genius Derek Dynamo and his genetically engineered T-Rex best friend as they protect the planet against evil.

Thom Chapman, senior director sales and distribution, said: “We are very excited to be partnering with Animaccord on Super Dinosaur and building the brand’s European presence after its launch in North and South America.”

Vladimir Gorbulya, CEO Animaccord, added: “It’s great to extend our partnership with Spin Master with the deal on such an exciting and high-quality animated brand as Super Dinosaur – we have been longing to have a boy’s property in our portfolio and now thrilled to represent it.”
