Reign of the Dinosaurs: A Discovery Channel special from Pixar?

04.09.2010by:

Back in August of last year, there was some question regarding whether or not the above imagery was a part of pre-production concepts for a possible upcoming Pixar project. Well, it is for an upcoming Pixar project... but not one you'd expect.

Called "Reign of the Dinosaurs", Pixar's project is in fact a television special made in collaboration with the Discovery Channel. Here's the official line:

Avatar meets Jurassic Park as the latest paleontological research meets Hollywood story telling. Discovery Channel teams with the top creative talent from Disney and Pixar to create an unparalleled television event. New creatures abound in a wondrous new world - giant dinos with Freddy Krueger style clawed hands, pygmy T-rex, frogs so big they can eat dinosaurs. Learn the latest in understanding of dinosaur behaviors with exotic mating dances, the inner workings of the T-rex's nuclear family, dinosaurs drunk on fermenting fruit, dinosaurs in apocalyptic events, the underwater birthing of mosasaurs, and prehistory's angriest mammals. A daring and provocative new chapter in television, REIGN OF THE DINOSAURS is bound to be the benchmark for all future dinosaur natural history programming.

awesome

Now all we need is the perfect combo of the BBC working with Pixar and we would really have something epic there. This will be great.

Pixar and Dinosaurs. I never thought two of my most favorite things in the world would ever combine, but here they are together :) Can't wait to see this. I think it's great that they're spreading out, too.

I'll watch it. Not entirely sure how it'll be structured or whatever, but will definitely watch it!
Approve of this, and can't wait to see John Carter of Mars, even if it's not 'official' Pixar.

I won't watch it..

But I'm totally not against Pixar stretching their wings a little bit, it's not like they don't deserve to try something different.

....like Ant Man with Edgar Wright

Back so soon? You were deleted weeks ago, and here you are again. You are a douche, but admittedly a douche with gusto. You certainly put a lot of effort into trolling, or link baiting, or whatever the hell you're doing.

Sorry dankfoo, but why anyone would read this assholes reviews is beyond me. I mean talking about drowning his babies and kicking boners in his ass? This guy is striving for attention and he is not funny at all.
