Eye candy: the first Walking with Dinosaurs 3D trailer

It was a time before history. A time when creatures roamed the earth. A time before modern CG technology.

Yes, things were tough back in 1999 when Framestore created the effects for the BBC’s landmark documentary series, Walking with Dinosaurs.

Fourteen years on, a lot has changed. For a start, Animal Logic has taken over the effects work, and the series has now become a full-length movie, the first trailer for which has just gone up online.

And we’re not sure that all the change has been for the better. The dinos themselves look great, but their facial expressions seem more Disney than documentary – and what’s with that voiceover?

For the minute, we’ll chalk that down to the way the trailer has been edited and cross our fingers for the theatrical release, which is scheduled for the week before Christmas.
