Kids finding any large dinosaur is remarkable, but as the shoot progressed, the team realised that we were witnessing something even more rare a truly historic T rex discovery. It’s been a real thrill,” says Andy Wood, producer and writer.

“This is the kind of story that documentary filmmakers dream of capturing. Beyond fostering an appreciation of the fun of science, the film sends a message about getting outside and exploring. That is a really important message that we want to come through one that I think is just baked into this story,” says Lyson.
