New Dinosaur Train Movie Heading to Disney Junior This Month
This coming February 20, PBS KIDS will be premiering an all-new, hour-long movie special for their hit series Dinosaur Train, titled “What’s at the Center of the Earth.” The movie is created by Craig Bartlett (Ready Jet Go!) and produced by The Jim Henson Company. True to the series, it will encourage preschoolers to apply scientific thinking as they discover new prehistoric species while being introduced to paleontology and natural science.
“What’s at the Center of the Earth?” focuses on the Conductor and his planned surprise for the Pteranodon Family: The Dinosaur Drill Train. The new contraption will allow passengers to experience a once-in-a-lifetime adventure as they get front row seats while the machine digs deep underground. Inside the Dinosaur Drill Train, the family discovers a whole new world that features fossils and troglobites, and even rivers of lava.
The special consists of four stories: Layers!, Fossils!, Troglobites!, and Minerals!
