When is ‘Dinosaurs’ Coming To Disney Plus?


Disney+ launched in the US & Canada on November 12, 2019, and in many other countries across the globe in early 2020.

The new streaming service offers thousands of viewing options which include original content created exclusively for Disney+ along with some of the best library content from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic.

Despite hours and hours worth of content to enjoy, there’s one show in particular that fans are craving to re-watch, “Dinosaurs.”

What Is “Dinosaurs” About?

“Dinosaurs” is an American-family sitcom television series that aired on ABC from April 26, 1991, through October 19, 1994, and reruns were shown on Disney Channel. The show, about a family of anthropomorphic dinosaurs (portrayed by puppets), was produced by Michael Jacobs Productions and Jim Henson Television in association with Walt Disney Television and distributed by Buena Vista International, Inc.

“Dinosaurs” is initially set in 60,000,003 BC in Pangaea. The show centers on the Sinclair family: Earl Sinclair (the father), Fran Sinclair (Phillips – the mother), their three children (son Robbie, daughter Charlene, and infant, Baby Sinclair), and Fran’s mother, Ethyl.

Earl’s job is to push over trees for the Wesayso Corporation with his friend and coworker Roy Hess, where they work under the supervision of their boss Bradley P. Richfield.

Is “Dinosaurs” Available on Disney Plus?

As it stands, “Dinosaurs” is not available on Disney+ in any country. As of writing, Disney hasn’t announced if, or when, the TV show might be added to the service.

Disney doesn’t typically share their plans on when a specific title will be added to the streaming service. New content is usually announced during the middle of the month for the following month. This gives us our best indication on what’s coming to Disney+ in the near future.

When Is “Dinosaurs” Coming To Disney Plus?

It was widely reported that “Dinosaurs” would be coming to Disney+ this fall. However, this report didn’t come directly from Disney and was actually made by Ryan Reynolds during the airing of ABC’s brand-new game show, “Don’t.”

The actual context of the announcement appeared to be a joke and the internet naturally ran with it. Once this “Don’t” episode was streaming on ABC’s website, the joke of “Dinosaur” streaming on Disney+ had been removed. It would appear that Reynolds mistakenly released some information early or Disney pulled the clip due to it being incorrect. We definitely think the Ryan Reynold announcement should be taken with a grain of salt.

Disney has also released a preview on what’s coming to Disney+ this fall which didn’t include “Dinosaurs.” The show has been highly requested by fans so it would be expected that Disney would have promoted it during their fall Disney+ marketing push.  However, due to its popularity, it’s absolutely possible that Disney is holding back the announcement for later this year, especially to help keep annual subscribers paying after the Disney+ launch anniversary approaches.

It’s also possible that Disney just hasn’t had an opportunity yet to rework the show for Disney+. The series is pushing 30 years old, technology has, of course, changed dramatically during that time and there are certain adjustments needed to be made for Disney+.

How To Request “Dinosaurs”

Disney has made it very easy to request a movie or TV show to be added to the service. You’ll need to head over to Disney’s help center, Help.DisneyPlus.com, and click the ‘Give Feedback’ button. Full details.
