PBS Distribution is adding another “Dinosaur Train” movie, along with new volumes of “Hero Elementary” and “Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum” to the PBS Kids Prime Video Channel in April.
The subscription rate for the PBS Kids Prime Video Channel is $4.99 per month with an Amazon Prime or Prime Video subscription.
The Pteranodon family takes the Dinosaur Train to Adventure Island, a new theme park on a volcanic island, in Dinosaur Train: Adventure Island, streaming beginning April 13. The Conductor’s archrival Thurston is in charge and he proudly shows off the park’s amazing steam-powered robot dinosaurs. When an earthquake causes the pressure to get too high, the malfunctioning robots go rogue. It’s then up to Buddy and his siblings (Tiny, Shiny and Don) to navigate safely across the island in order to reunite with their parents.
Volume seven of “Hero Elementary” streams beginning April 2. In this volume, when the team heads to Citytown Hero Con, they need to find the real Jetman Jones in the crowd. AJ’s autism is key to saving the day in “AJ’s Extra Superpower (parts one and two).” Then, when a hailstorm causes damage around Citytown, Sparks’ Crew calls upon a famous hero to understand more about hail in “Hail Caesar/Picture Perfect.” Plus, Sparks’ crew searches for a self-flying cape after it escapes from a store in “Looking Super/Schmubble Trouble.” They discover a mysterious creature in Super Superior Lake in “Sara Loses Her Snap/A Soupie Mystery.”
Volume eight of “Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum” starts streaming April 9. Viewers join Xavier, Brad and Yadina as they travel back in time again to learn more valuable lessons from historical heroes. In “I Am Albert Einstein/I Am Carol Burnett,” Albert Einstein helps Xavier figure out what to do when he’s really curious ─ starting with asking questions. Then in “I Am Abraham Lincoln/I Am Jane Jacobs,” Abraham Lincoln helps Yadina realize what she needs to do when she accidently loses her friend’s toy. Plus, Celia Cruz helps Yadina prepare for a special birthday performance in “I Am Edmund Hillary/I Am Celia Cruz.”
