In a time when dinosaurs rule the Earth, the smallest of the pack — a playful Pachyrhinosaurus named Patchi — embarks on the biggest adventure of his life.

The Bottom Line
Walking With Dinosaurs was originally a BBC TV series that aired as a documentary series in 1999 before it was turned into the spectacular 3D movie released during the holidays last year, and the DVD + Blu-ray arrives just in time for Easter. The film features an all-star voice cast that older audiences will relate to (audiences who probably caught the original series when they were jut abit younger). It features the voice talents of John Leguizamo, Justin Long and Karl Urban.
What is truly extraordinary about this movie though is it's visual achievements. Without a question there have been amazing films made about dinosaurs, and every interpretation of what these long-gone creatures looked like is more impressive and interesting than the next - but since it was based on a documentary Walking With Dinosaurs has one of the most accurate and up-to-date visualizations of what dinosaurs truly looked, and acted like. Don't worry though, it isn't all just science, the movie features a loveable story as we follow best friends Patchi, Scowler, and Juniper (three pachyrhinosaurus') as they grow from babies to adults, struggling all the while to find their footing in the world. Especially Patchi who learns how to become leader of the herd.
The DVD + Blu-ray comes with some fun extras, like the "interactive map," which shows you exactly where dinosaurs roamed, and the special to Blu-ray "Cretaceous Cut," which is the movie in it's natural state. Whether you're a history buff, a science-lover or just someone who loves cool things, it's hard not to be fascinated by dinosaurs, and this movie is about as close as you'll ge to seeing them!
Filmed with the latest in cutting edge 3D technology, Walking With Dinosaurs The Movie taps the masterminds behind visual hits like Avatar, using Cameron Pace Fusion 3D technology to fully immerse viewers while recruiting animation house, Animal Logic, to bring digital dino magic to life by creating photorealistic dinosaurs based on paleontological research from world experts retained by the BBC.
