About the movie

A prehistoric journey for all the family...

Take off on a thrilling prehistoric adventure.

Walking with Dinosaurs: The Movie is a 2013 family film about dinosaurs in the Late Cretaceous period 70 million years ago.

The gigantic voice talents of Justin Long (Alvin and the Chipmunks) and John Leguizamo (Ice Age) take you on a thrilling prehistoric journey the whole family will enjoy!

In a time when dinosaurs rule the earth, the smallest of the pack – a playful Pachyrhinosaurus named Patchi – embarks on the biggest adventure of his life.

As he tries to find his place in a spectacular world filled with fun-loving friends and a few dangerous foes, Patchi will discover the courage he needs to become the leader of the herd and a hero for the ages.

Characters

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.

Juniper

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, Alex (an Alexornis bird) is our other guide to the Late Cretaceous.

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.

Chirostenotes

Definitely a runner, not a fighter, Chirostenotes is a bird-like dinosaur with a toothless beak, slender claws and long, powerful legs that could propel it to impressive speeds.

Patchi's mom

Patchi’s mom is a mature female Pachyrhinosaurus who’s successfully raised a family.

She perishes while trying to save Patchi’s siblings from a raging forest fire, leaving Patchi and Scowler orphaned and on their own.

Bulldust

Bulldust is Patchi and Scowler’s father, the strong and respected leader of the Pachyrhinosaurus herd.

While leading his family in the annual migration, Bulldust, Scowler and Patchi are separated from the rest of the herd in a forest fire and trapped by a preying Gorgosaurus. Bulldust battles the Gorgosaurus to save his sons, but the Gorgosaurus takes his life, leaving them without a father.

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 Gorgon is very poignant for our hero.

WWD - 3D - Movie

Scowler

Big and strong and very single-minded, Scowler is absolutely focused on becoming the new leader of the herd. He's OK with his little brother, Patchi, but often forgets that when his goal is in sight. Whatever he may lack in smarts, he makes up for in courage.

WWD - 3D - Movie

Pterosaurs

Pterosaurs are a group of flying reptiles that live 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.

WWD - 3D - Movie

Troodon

A mischievous mid-size predator, Troodon are obsessed with food and have a reputation as cowards, preying on baby Pachyrhinosaurus who are too young to defend themselves.

Patchi has a close call with a Troodon and makes a lucky escape!

WWD - 3D - Movie

Alphadon

A small possum-like mammal, Alphadon is pretty shy, but not so timid that he won't sniff out a smelly Patchi and wrinkle his nose in disgust.

WWD - 3D - Movie

Parkosaurus

Half the height of a human, Parksosaurus is a vegetarian with short and strongly built limbs, possibly for burrowing. It's always on the lookout for a threat, but is quite a fast runner.

Ankylosaur

Even Gorgon would avoid ankylosaurs like the two-metre-tall, tank-like Edmontonia with its spiky, bony armour.

WWD - 3D - Movie

Edmontosaurus

Edmontosaurus are duck-billed dinosaurs and gentle giants.

They are vegetarians, biting off leaves and branches from shrubs and low-lying boughs using their horny jaws. These animals have many teeth behind their beak to grind and chew their food.

The nostrils of Edmontosaurus are large and lead into a huge, hollow nasal cavity. They might have been covered with loose skin that the animal could have filled with air and used to make loud bellowing sounds.

Hesperonychus

Sometimes called 'killer chickens'. In the movie, these small, feathered predators hunt in packs and give both the Alphadon and Patchi a bit of trouble.
