It has worldwide distribution rights (excluding US) with RHI International Distribution for the 75-minute feature length movie produced by RHI Entertainment.

The agreement sees ER acquiring worldwide television distribution rights across both pay and free TV platforms as well as worldwide (excluding US) home video distribution rights to the successful feature film.

Targeted at 6-11 year olds Dinotopia: Quest for the Ruby Sunstone follows twelve year old orphan Kex as he stows away in a lifeboat in search of adventure. Shipwrecked, Kex lands on Dinotopia, an isolated island where humans and dinosaurs co-exist. He is befriended by a young dinosaur, 26, but the friends soon face trouble as evil Ogthar gets hold of the Ruby Sunstone whose power can endanger Dinotopia.

The film was produced in 2005 by Hallmark Entertainment following the publishing success of over 20 books. It also experienced success with a hit TV series and a number of computer games developed for PC, Gameboy Advanced and Xbox.

Chloe van den Berg, Director, International Sales at ER commented: “Entertainment Rights is unveiling Dinotopia to international broadcasters for the first time at MIPCOM this coming October. The Dinotopia franchise has had great success within publishing as well as spawning a tv series and this one off animated movie is anticipated to deliver strong sales as part of Entertainment Rights fourth quarter line up of programming .”
