Walking with Dinosaurs The 3D Movie

Fancy knowing what it was really like when Dinosaurs ruled the earth?

Fancy knowing what it was really like when Dinosaurs ruled the earth? Now you can with the release of Walking with Dinosaurs, a Live Action Adventure 3D movie the whole family will love! We get to know some of the main characters below.


Patchi
Curious and optimistic, Patchi is the hero of our movie. Patchi, a Pachyrhinosaurus, is one of our guides to the Late Cretaceous, the prehistoric period during which our story takes place. We fall in love with him as a tiny hatchling and share his adventures and challenges as he grows to adulthood. He is not the biggest or the toughest guy in the herd, but he uses his head and his heart to do the right thing. He survives some very dramatic situations on his way to becoming leader of the herd and to winning the affections of Juniper. He’s not an aggressive guy by nature, but he will dig deep within himself and even risk his own safety to save Juniper or Scowler, his brother. He is the classic underdog hero, who finds his inner strength to prove his worth.



Gorgon
Simply put, the villain of our movie. A smart, fast and terrifying Gorgosaurus, he’s always on the lookout for the next kill. He is like a super-charged T. rex, and will stop at nothing to feed his extended family. He is cunning and relentless, and uses precise tactics and strategies to round up the next meal. Patchi’s father was killed by a Gorgosaurus, so the looming threat of the Gorgon is very poignant for our hero.



Perry
A group of flying reptiles that lived alongside the dinosaurs. In the Late Cretaceous, when the movie is set, one group of pterosaurs, the Azhdarchids (Azhdarchs for short) dominates the skies over land. Many Azhdarchs have enormous wingspans and sharp beaks, which they use to peck at both crabs and Patchi alike. Though they soar over the prehistoric landscape, even they fall prey to the occasional voracious Gorgosaurus.



Juniper
Is the key female in the story. She’s very pretty (for a Pachyrhinosaurus) and has a strong character. As a youngster, she shares adventures with Patchi with courage and resilience, separated from both her family and the herd. She develops a real connection with Patchi, even though she can’t always show it. She always obeys her mother, but she really wishes she could ignore herd protocol and choose her own mate (Patchi), instead of having to be part of the herd leader’s harem. She shares Patch’s happiness when he has proved himself as leader of the herd.



Alex
A small bright bird with teeth (Alexornis), is our other guide. In the movie, these birds have a symbiotic relationship with the Pachyrhinosaurus - they eat the ticks and other insects that bother them and in turn get a free meal and a safe place to perch. Alex becomes Patchi’s unlikely friend and ally and has a tendency to show up at the right place at the right time to nudge him in the right direction. Funny and maybe a bit sarcastic, he’s fascinated by Patchi and his adventures.
