'WE'RE BACK! A DINOSAUR'S STORY' TO OPEN NATIONWIDE ON NOV. 12

 UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Universal Pictures will release the animated film "We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story," presented by Steven Spielberg, nationwide on Nov. 12.
 Based on the beloved children's book by Hudson Talbott, this feature-length holiday adventure for the entire family stars the voices of Walter Cronkite, John Goodman, John Malkovich, Julia Child, Jay Leno and Martin Short.
 The film follows a group of amiable, super-intelligent dinosaurs who are sent on a magical mission to modern day New York, where they meet Louie, a young street boy, and Cecilia, a young girl looking for a friend. Their adventures together take them from a rousing holiday parade and the excitement of the city to the surprises of an eccentric circus.
 John Patrick Shanley ("Moonstruck," "The Land Before Time") adapted Talbott's story for the screen.
 "We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story" is directed by Dick Zondag and Ralph Zondag, and Phil Nibbelink and Simon Wells. The producer is Stephen Hickner. The executive producers are Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall and Kathleen Kennedy. The original score is by James Horner.
 The film was produced at Amblimation, the state-of-the-art animation studio in London. It is the fourth animated film from Amblin and Universal, following "An American Tail," "The Land Before Time" and "An American Tail: Fievel Goes West."
 In addition to its feature length films, Amblin also has been successful in television animation with such shows as the Emmy Award- winning syndicated series "Tiny Toon Adventures."
