Launched on Disney Channel in January, Gigantosaurus (based on Jonny Duddle’s bestselling book of the same name) stars four fiercely-fun dinosaur friends – Rocky, Bill, Tiny and Mazu – who take preschoolers on exciting, comedy-filled adventures as they dare to be themselves and explore the world beyond their nests. In every episode, the curious young dinosaurs explore the mystery of “Gigantosaurus” – the biggest, fiercest dinosaur of all. The series is helmed by award-winning director Olivier Lelardoux.
