#Churpremiere – Walking With Dinosaurs: The 3D Movie
We’ve heard stories of dinosaurs since we were kids. Stories of how gentle and majestic a long-neck dinosaur can be, to how frightening a T-Rex is! We’ve probably seen some dinosaur fossils in museums and even had dinosaur toys to play with.
But what if you’re given the opportunity to see an actual dinosaur, up-close and personal? Are you up for the challenge to see how dinosaurs lived and ruled the Earth 70 million years ago?
If your answer is yes, then get ready to embark on the most epic prehistoric adventure as we travel back in time at the #Churpremiere of Walking With Dinosaurs: The Movie!
Synopsis: WALKING WITH DINOSAURS: THE 3D MOVIE is the most ambitious film to feature photo-real dinosaurs set in real live action landscapes, immersing audiences in an amazing prehistoric age. The emotional story at the heart of this film is of epic proportions and one that we can all relate to: a story of families born and families torn apart, of growing up, of rivalry and competition – and the relentless struggle to survive.
The story is set 70 million years ago in Alaska, high in the Arctic. Each year, the long dark winters – three months of perpetual darkness and violent snow storms – drive the dinosaurs southwards in their thousands on a great annual migration. Amongst the spectacle, we travel with Patchi, a strange but endearing Pachyrhinosaurus with a large frill and horns.
From the moment he is born as the smallest hatchling, Patchi must survive competitive brothers and sisters, a wild and unpredictable world and fierce predators like the wily Troodon and monstrous Gorgosaurus. Witness to the devastating death of his father at the teeth of a Gorgosaurus, Patchi teams up with his brother Scowler and female friend Juniper.
They muddle along with the great migration in a series of hair-raising but humorous adventures until finally they reach the wintering grounds and are reunited with their families. But Patchi is separated from his sweetheart Juniper, who he does not meet again till adulthood. By now she has paired up with Patchi’s older brother Scowler, who becomes his greatest rival.
Patchi, even as an adult, remains the smallest; the underdog, alone on the fringes of the herd. But on the migration back to the nesting grounds he proves himself through courage and a collaborative nature and the females begin to follow him, which only intensifies the rivalry with his bigger brother. In a climactic finale, he rescues his reckless rival from a Gorgosaurus pack and wins recognition as the most deserving leader of the herd and admiration from Juniper. He was never the largest or toughest dinosaur but he’s shown that survival of the fittest can mean far more than just being the biggest or strongest.
Here’s a sneak peek of the underdog dinosaur triumphs against all odds to become a hero for the ages:
