The new WWD movie looks pretty epic, although from what I've been told there are certain elements that might irk an honest paleo-enthusiast. It appears to have a plot very similar to March of the Dinosaurs, which by the way I personally feel this new WWD movie won't have anything on. March of the Dinosaurs had it's own irks too, but I still thought it was amazing. You can check out the trailer for the new movie here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7lBKB…

Pros: Depiction of azhdarchid pterosaurs are accurate, CGI and most of the models look good.
Cons: Nudist Albertosaurus, scaly-headed Troodon.

From what I gather, I think this film is more like how Disney's Dinosaur was originally meant to be before Executive Meddling.

i like it but t.rex could have had feathers and they looked a bit skinny to me, more like Albertosaurus or Daspletoaurus. I gonna see it anyways. Just happy for for a good looking dinosaur film.

they had, yutyrannus was coverd so its very likely that even t.rex was coverd.

The tyrannosaurs in Walking With Dinosaurs 3D are albertosaurines, so either Albertosaurus or Gorgosaurus.

CGI looks good, but the anthropomorphisation looks like it could be annoying. Oh, and sorry to channel my inner Feather Nazi, but TYRANNOSAUR LACKING FEATHERS!

No, I'm with you on that last point. For me, it's one of the reasons WWD 3D doesn't compare to March of the Dinosaurs.

Feathers or not, look's great!
Defs a HUGE skip-stone away from the mini-series.

I wouldn't say so, the original Walking with Dinosaurs was very innovative for it's day in terms of nature documentaries. This is just kind of... WWD 3D. It's decent in it's own right, but it doesn't have much to say for itself, especially considering it's telling a story that's already been told in a similar movie as recent as 2011 (March of the Dinosaurs).

It's not even the lack of feathers on the albertosaurines that is the problem, it's all the gnarly scales and spines they've got going on which is all just so much unlikely-hood. What little skin we do have from tyrannosaurids shows either tiny bumps (not even necessarily scales) 2-3mm across - not a size where you'd be able to see anywhere but close enough to touch them - if they show anything but smooth skin. It just makes all this scaly set-dressing leave me with a bad taste.

Indeed, the art department kind of went Todd Marshall on their albertosaurines. Come to think of it, it was that crazy row of dorsal spines on their backs that really threw me off.

It looks really cool, but shouldn't that Gorgosaurus have feathers?

I doubt it. How many modern animals lose all their integument in the summer? None. It gets thinner, but that's it.

Yes, that's one of the primary irks I have with this movie is that the tyrannosaurs are apparently featherless (are they actually supposed to be Gorgosaurus or Albertosaurus?). I had a lot of irks with March of the Dinosaurs too, but that movie's saving grace was it's badass feathered tyrannosaurs. You simply cannot top a feathered tyrannosaur with anything except another feathered tyrannosaur.

Yeah, exactly. But at least they seem to get the azhdarchids right with this one. I didn't see any vulture-like behaviour in the trailer.

Indeed. If I had no other incentive to watch Walking with Dinosaurs 3D, I'd at least watch it just for the azhdarchids. They seem very well-done in both appearance and behavior.

I noticed that too. The dromaeosaur that was briefly glimpsed also looked okay to me.

That was more likely supposed to be a troodontid, actually. Regardless, I'll need to see more of it before I can comment on that. All I can say is, it certainly doesn't measure up to Emily Willoughby-style deinonychosaurs, which in addition to being wonderfully accurate are in my opinion also the best in terms of aesthetics. This WWD troodontid appeared to be gorilla-suited like the ones from March of the Dinosaurs; but again, I'll need to see more of it before I can comment.

You could tell it was a troodont just from that one blurred glimpse? I'm impressed.

No, I'm just making a judgement based on biostratigraphy. To my knowledge, there aren't any described arctic dromaeosaurs.
