The commercial takes place after the television series; Chomper, Ruby, Screech and Thud are dead, Red Claw is all grown up, and Gang of Five have been forced to summon cereal to defeat the villain once and for all.
It's Still Bad But It Ain't Collision Course Levels
For All You Know It Could Slightly Better Than When You Last Watched It
I'd still rather not watch it; even if it doesn't end up being as bad as the firestorm that comes after, I think its existence is extrenous and I don't particularly like what it has to offer in the first place (at least dinosaurs fit the prehistoric setting; pirates? really?).
On the topic of the first movie, I looked at the bonus features after I watched it to check species and see some concept art that didn't make it into the final movie; if you're curious, I can disclose what I remember.
I also got around to finishing the Wii game for the second movie; though I think the game is very good as a whole, I think the final level is really weird and doesn't fit with what's going on in the part of the movie it's set in (the bowl is flooding and there's barely any snow on the ground, but here's Scrat traversing ice caves next to Half Peak from the first movie, with snow just about everywhere!).
Dawn of the Dinosaurs is a weird one; I think it's funnier than the last movie and has better action and animation (and Buck), but I think the plot is a weird turn for the series; the dinosaur designs that aren't T. rex are downright bizarre (I think Rudy is better than Strawberry at least, but only because he has the benefit of being a cartoon).
This was made by Fred Wierum (link to source , moderate language warning), shortly after the first Fallen Kingdom trailer landed; I personally think this is way better than the weird sewer gator abomination we got in the movie.
I'm going to add an ankylosaur and maiasaur to fill in for the ankylosaur and iguanodon from the third movie; I'm definitely going to end the simulation with Sharptooth invading the valley alongside a few velociraptors.
Also, I only now feel like pointing this out, given how I chose to explain the stegosaur tails in the series a couple of days ago; the tails of the Stegosaurus in JWE are usually in an accurate, raised "on" posture!
as much as I've talked about how cool Enchanted Learning is for providing a glimpse into the primordial ooze of awesomebro culture, I have to say that it's just as entertaining to see the platform wherein a lot of paleontological icons from the 90's and 20's got to discuss dinosaur movies and new discoveries.
On the topic of TLW stegosaurs and their tails, apparently promotional shots in magazine articles showed them with droopy tails, while the ones in the movie (as Darren was notified shortly after the thing I posted above) are depicted with accurate, raised tails.
I wonder if the magazine shots are what were used as the basis for the lethargic stegosaurs in the new trilogy, alongside some pieces of concept art...
"Spielberg was posed near the Stan Winston Studios anamatronic Stegosaur. It wasn't "on", so was probably drooping."
maybe all of the power they put into fueling the Indominus, the raptors and the Rex made it so they didn't have enough power to turn on the stegosaurs, resulting in all of them being droopy-tailed and sad.

I Bet The Lambeosaurus Was a Misidentified Corythosaur in The Film
1.) Ceratosaurus; Holtz' full quote for context:
*New dinosaurs: _Corythosaurus_, a nice (but very brief) scene with
_Ankylosaurus_, _Spinosaurus_ (with rather unexpected lacrimal horns, given
that most of the related taxa lack these!), and (disturbingly) an
indeterminate theropod. The latter is disturbing because in previous works
there was at least some attempt to base all the dinosaurs on real taxa.
This thing (which goes unnamed) MIGHT supposed to be _Ceratosaurus_, as it
has a horn (a CONICAL horn) on its snout, but its head is very big and
rounded and does not match the skull of true _Ceratosaurus_. One of the
best things the JP series had going for it was at least the attempt to base
its dinosaurs on paleontology rather than simply the imaginations of the
animators (as in older dino-flicks). I hope they don't do too much more of
this in possible future iterations.
It is just a T. rex with a horn slapped on, so I don't blame him.
2.) Probably; here's a picture of the specific Lambeosaurus species she misidentifies it as
Can Someone Inform The Guy Who Said Deinocheirus Is The Most Deadly Dinosaur That Ornithocheirus Wasn't A Velociraptor (Or Even a Dromaeosaur), Lived in Asia While Spinosaurus Lived in North Africa (And Possibly The Middle East as Well) and Was Probably a Herbivore (Or At Least A Omnivore With a Plant Majority Diet) and Probably Couldn't Even Bring Down a Full Grown Supersaur and Ultrasaur
This is the month where Megaraptor was first termed, apparently (the first post mentioning it, having heard about it through the grape vine, wondering what a dromaeosaur is doing in South America and hoping they go through with it actually being named "Megaraptor", was posted on the 20th).
This post; from May 5, 1997; is the first mention I can find of Giganotosaurus on the site (which has messages archived to as far back as the start of 1994). Later in the month, a skull was unveiled and people started to actually talk about it.
If Giganotosaurus was first publicized that recently, I don't think Universal could have really caught wind of it in time to add it to the Dec. 9-released V; I think this adds fuel to the "Plates isn't a Giganotosaurus" fire.

- this was apparently a really controversial documentary from jack horner, the paleo consultant for jurassic park; let's see how badly they actually blew it by today's standards
- they call horner a "maverick"
- as ugly as the t. rex here is, i think it's actually really cool-looking
- 66 million years ago and not 65!
- quetz is weird-lookin'
- edmontosaurs look good; then again, i think this is reused footage from wdra, given the rex design showed off here isn't the vulture they propose later
- yeah this is wdra footage; 0/10 no sulley from monsters inc.
- i presume this was made before we found bones from edmontosaurs and triceratops with healed tyrannosaur bite marks, which are good proof that t. rex were at least partially predatory
- the wdra cgi is pretty wacky
- "no one likes that idea" at least he's honest
- the t. rex makes literal bear noises here
- t. rex was a normal animal, not an evil monster; i don't like how they're portraying it in predator form
- this is the land before anchiornis, sinosauropteryx and borealopelta
- who is narrating?
- "ONLY" two dozen skeletons!?
- was that t. rex in a tripod posture?
- horner is answering my question; yes it was
- STOP CALLING IT A MONSTER
- i like the stabbing at the tripod posture
- the first t. rex arm was only known in 1990?
- wankel's rex is on display here
- they've showed a t. rex bellyflopping twice now
- going off of this, only its hands were sticking out of its big fat chest; this isn't proof of not being a predator. it could just use its big, muscular legs to right itself
- dinosaur 2: valley of the t rex
- the usage of "tertiary" makes me wonder; when was "paleogene" coined?
- wwd background dino calls
- a gnat is bugging me; it has been for a month or two
- i don't have the patience for that kind of work
- apparently wankel was responsible for the scavenger/predator debate all by itself
- i don't recognize this deinonychus/tenontosaur fight from any other documentaries
- small dromaeosaurs were impressive predators, but hunters of edmontosaurs, ankylosaurs and triceratops they were not
- the deinonychus has fuzz; more than just jp3 quills
- t. rex might not have been a fast animal, or even a runner by this documentary, but the animals in its habitat were slugbeasts; it still could have caught them
- it didn't have the tools to be a hunter... besides the sledgehammers that were its jaws
- jack horner was viciously assaulted by fourth- and sixth-graders for calling t. rex a scavenger; t. rex fanboys are kinda horrible and they always have been
- dramatic toes
- i wonder if g-rex; a 35ft long t. rex; served as the inspiration for the jp3 rex
- g-rex flopping over and choppily going into a dramatic pose is kind of funny
- at least the show is aware that nothing is certain here, and that there is no smoking gun
- is horner seriously suggesting that t. rex had bad eyesight?
- him saying it had a great sense of smell is right, but bad eyes... pah!
- where'd they get that dead vulture from?
- "t. rex and vultures had similar olfactory bulbs, ergo t. rex was an obligate scavenger"
- SOME PALEONTOLOGISTS WANT THEIR FOOD ALIVE!?
- "yeppindeedly t. rex was 100% scavenger, saying it might have also been a predator while also being a scavenger is baaaad"; i think there's a word for only saying that it can be one thing and ignoring the possibility that it did things on the side (hours later, looked it up: "false dichotomy" is the fallacy, it comes from saying there's only two options in an argument while not even bothering to consider a middle ground; our outright pissing on the middle ground in horner's case)
- i think there was a bug on one of the rocks
- i don't like his cockiness in regards to his theory, but horner is at least sensible
- "t. rex ate carcasses, therefore that must have been literally the only thing it did"
- i don't want to repeat what i just said right above this
- how the hell can raptors kill a triceratops?
- the rex design went from wdra to fat crocodile vulture in no time
- is that what would be described as daspletosaurus horneri in 2017?
- going off of this, early t. rex were buffed up daspletosaurs while k-pg boundary rexes were gigantic fatbeasts
- the proposed tyrannosaur design reminds me of the ditw design
- they're using spotted hyenas (very competent, active hunters) as examples of t. rex proxies; whoops!
- as ugly and tubby as this tyrannosaurus is, it looks really cool, and i actually think that it's entirely plausible
- the predator rex hypothesis might have been thrown off in 2001, but as i write, i think that the idea is actually pretty accurate nowadays
- are these proto-dakotaraptors, or what?
- also pronated hands on all of the theropods lol
- time has not been kind to this; even ignoring that, i think a lot of horner's ideas are kind of off-base, the cgi was weak, and there wasn't much dino action; 5/10 ~ a t. rex hater
- i wonder how many rex fanboys saw this on the night it aired and really wanted to b-redactec-h about it on enchanted learning the next day, only to be sidetracked by the fact that the 9/11 new york attack happened on the morning after votr and that's a little bit more important than the bruised egos of the embryotic dinosaur community
This movie turned ten years old a couple of days ago; I remember watching a good part of it way back when, not too long after it was uploaded on YouTube. It might not be the greatest piece of dinosaur art out there, but I think it's thoroughly entertaining and classic.
I used to watch the first 14 parts every once in a while when I was younger; my interest always dropped off once the Pteranodon and the life machine were introduced, and only a few days ago did I watch the entire movie (I feel like it goes downhill pretty fast after the green Ultrasauros dies; this is a sentiment shared by the two creators of the movie).
Hoops' current content isn't all that different from what I'd do if I were to remake my YouTube account.
The movie will start with Sharptooth and Red Claw's origins, and why they're enemies. He'll also protect Littlefoot, after Red Claw killed his mother. When Red Claw kidnaps Littlefoot, Sharptooth then decides to show him he's a real guardian.
