SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–May 2, 2017– (NASDAQ: AMZN)– Amazon today announced its brand-new Amazon Original Kids Series, Dino Dana, is scheduled to premiere on Friday, May 26 on Prime Video in the US and UK. A follow-up to the 2015 Emmy award-winning series Dino Dan: Trek’s Adventures, Dino Dana is a preschool program that takes viewers on a whole new level of dinosaur encounters.
