"No dinosaurs were harmed in the making of this movie," joked Baker Bloodworth, coproducer of Disneys DINOSAUR (set to be released May 19th). Indeed they werent, but after audiences see the film, the studio is hoping that the end results will be real enough to make you question the ASPCAs involvement in the production.
"These dinosaurs are our actors," added the films producer Pam Marsden. "They're not just effects in the film, theyre not screaming, charging dinosaurs, in the way that we usually think of them. These are dinosaurs with personalities, emotions and motivations."
In what theyre hoping will be a landmark to hang alongside TOY STORY, WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT and even SNOW WHITE, the Walt Disney Studio has invested a lot of time, and especially a lot of technology, to bring the film, and its stars, to life.
Through a combination of computer-generated imagery (CGI) and digitally enhanced live-action backgrounds, DINOSAUR tells an extremely naturalistic, BAMBI-esque tale of a group of dinosaurs searching for safety in an ever-changing world.
