Last weekend, my family and I had the distinct privilege of attending the Walking With Dinosaurs premiere in New York City. My sons and nephews are big dinosaur fans and they were thrilled to have the opportunity to be transported back in time to a period when they walked the earth. I’m not sure who enjoyed the film more, our kids or my husband and I.
The thing that makes this film so unique is the fact that, 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, big screen adventure for families. Meet dinosaurs more real than you’ve ever seen as you take off on a thrilling prehistoric adventure, where Patchi, an underdog dinosaur, triumphs against all odds to become a hero for the ages.
One of the things that I really enjoyed about Walking With Dinosaurs, as an educator, is that different dinosaurs are introduced throughout the movie and the audience is given a brief description of each one. Some of the information that is included about each one is whether they are a herbivore, carnivore, or omnivore and their individual characteristics. This prompted my seven year old to turn to me throughout the film and ask me lots of questions which I was only too happy to answer.
After the film we had the pleasure of meeting actor John Leguizamo on the red carpet. He was the voice of the prehistoric bird Alex in the movie and was Patchi’s companion throughout his life. Mr. Lequizamo was very friendly and down-to-earth and did not hesitate at all when I asked him to take a photo with my family. It was refreshing to see him at the premiere with his own family and to be so warm and accommodating to the families that attended the event. He is truly a role model in the Latino community.
If you haven’t seen Walking With Dinosaurs yet you must make time to do so with your family during the holiday season. It will truly be an unforgettable experience that you all will not soon forget.
