Bolivar comes with Irish filmmaker Kealan O’Rourke attached to write and direct the project, which is intended to be an animated feature.
Written and illustrated by Sean Rubin, the graphic novel centres on a young girl named Sybil who moves to New York and finds out her neighbor is Bolivar, the last living dinosaur. Despite Sybil’s persistent efforts, Bolivar refuses to befriend her.
The dinosaur is somewhat of a recluse, tucked away from the world Sybil so desperately wants him to explore with her. He soon realizes how much she means to him and that he would risk everything for her.
