For the first time in movie history, audiences will truly see and feel what it was like when dinosaurs ruled the Earth. "Walking with Dinosaurs" is the ultimate immersive experience, utilizing state of the art 3D to put audiences in the middle of a thrilling and epic prehistoric world, where an underdog dino triumphs to become a hero for the ages.

Although the fact that small, raptor-like dinosaurs were feathered has been known since the end of the nineties, this is one of the first movies to actually depict many of its dinosaur characters with a feathery coat. Jurassic Park III (2001) was the first movie to feature raptors with any feathers at all. Originally, Disney's Dinosaur (2000) would also have included feathered raptors, but budget and animation issues forced the creators to depict them incorrectly with scales. See more »
Remember when Disney's Dinosaur came out? Probably not, but it appeared to try the same familiar formula that Don Bluth's animated classic Land Before Time perfected using "then" state of the art CGI rendering. Needless to say, it didn't meet up to what audiences and critics were hoping to see. Having said that, this film is Citizen Freaking Kane compared to the 2013 abomination that is known simply as Walking with Dinosaurs.
While the effects look like a step up in comparison, the dialogue and characters are about as intelligent as the dinosaurs this film was based on, and even THAT'S being generous.
