The story of this movie follows Patchi, a young dinosaur on the journey from youth to adulthood. Along the way as he navigates through vast tracks in the wild country, he encounters a diverse range of alternative species, feeding alongside other docile herbivores and evading monstrous predators.
Meeting these other species is a big relief because he has finally found company.
He now wants to become a respected member of this new community but his intention is not to lead other species. Patchi wants to win the heart of female Juniper but he hopes to first attain the love and respect of her sibling called Scowler. Will he win get the power and win her heart?
Some critics have described this movie as an ultimate immersive experience that utilised the state of the art 3D to put audiences in the middle of a thrilling and epic world.
Justin Long who has starred in Jeepers Creepers, Galaxy Quest and Dodgeball, voices the character of Patchi and says that he has always been obsessed with dinosaurs.
He says, “I used to know a lot about dinosaurs. I remember when I was a kid they had found a Brontosaurus that was exponentially bigger than the others and they named it a very non-creative name like Giganotosaurus or Hugeasaurus or something like that, I can’t exactly remember.”
