Pixar is Making a Dinosaur Film

Granted it's not the dinosaur film I pitched. I thought we could use a little synergy with internet/smart phone app culture. After all, dinosaurs are ancestors of all birds, especially the angry ones.


"Even the word 'raptor' means bird of prey."
"Doesn't look very scary to me. Looks more like a six-foot turkey."

People have been guessing this one for years, ever since some co-workers and I went on a dig with the Black Hills Institute back in aught nine. Ironically, the dig (which I chronicled in my Jurassic Journals) had nothing to do with this movie, but it got the rumor mill churning.

The official premise released today at D23 was, "What if that life-changing asteroid missed Earth? Director Bob Peterson’s hilarious tale depicts a world where dinosaurs never went extinct."

Stay tuned for more details from this adventure 65 million years in the making...

Trish- that's about the same reaction I had when I heard about the project earlier this year.

Evan- I know the feeling, man. I feel bad for all the animators at Pixar who will be working on Monsters instead.

David- I thought you might.

Diana- That's all I can hope for.
