When I first heard that DreamWorks Animation was planning on releasing a show titled Dinotrux, the question on my mind–and I’m pretty sure everyone else’s–was, what the heck are “Dinotrux” and what do they look like? Simply put, Dinotrux are truck/dinosaur hybrids (obvious;y) and so darn cute we wish we could pinch their cheeks without hurting our fingers. With the show set to premiere on Netflix August 14, we’ve also gotten our hands on an exclusive sneak peek of the series, just for you.
The clip at the top of the page shows the Tyrannosaurus Trux protagonist aptly named Ty Rux and his Reptool (yes, really) best friend Revvit getting up to crazy, competitive antics with their friends. By the looks of the video, the show–which is aimed at kids–looks like a hilarious, adorable, and most importantly, fun adaptation of Chris Gall’s award winning book series.
The show chronicles the unlikely friendship between Ty Rux and Revvit who along with the rest of the Dinotrux and Reptools are teaming up to build a bigger, better world and defend it from D-Structs who threatens to ruin everything they’ve worked for.
On the series, Netflix originals VP Cindy Holland recently said, “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. 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.”
Also, just in case you missed it, take a look at the show’s opening sequence:
