We’ve praised the astounding beauty of Fox’s upcoming Walking with Dinosaurs feature. Alas, it was not meant to be, for the latest trailer has added a truly heinous voiceover for each prehistoric creature. It’s really, really terrible.
We long suspected voiceovers in this feature, but this… this is too much. Why does the bird have an accent? Are they all talking to each other telepathically? Why?
What a waste of a perfectly gorgeous film. Here’s the official synopsis:
For the first time in movie history, audiences will truly see and feel what it was like when dinosaurs ruled the Earth. “ Walking with Dinosaurs” is the ultimate immersive experience, utilizing state of the art 3D to put audiences in the middle of a thrilling and epic prehistoric world, where an underdog dino triumphs to become a hero for the ages.
Walking with Dinosaurs will be released on December 20th.
EDIT: Earlier I said this was a Disney movie. I was wrong it’s 20th Century Fox, apologies all!
