Fun movie for kids and adults

We love the Dino Dana series and this movie did not disappoint. Dana's step sister must make a life changing decision about her divorced parents and whom she is to live permanently with. A new family moves in next door and the step brothers are having a hard time adjusting to each other. Ultimately the four children take on a dinosaur adventure and learn about family. There is a ton of education on dinosaurs. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this movie as well. There are a few scenes where the dinosaurs are causing the children some mild peril but everything turns out alright.
