One look at this DVD, and viewers won't believe it's all animation. One of the most detailed DVDs out today, this is bound to go down as a classic both in animation and children's features. Dinosaur, released by Walt Disney Pictures, is the charming story of a dinosaur mistakenly raised by lemurs. The special effects of the meteor hitting the earth are so realistic, you'll find it hard to believe that this is an animated movie. Because the movie was released digitally, the DVD is created straight from the digital source, and it shows in the sound and quality. The sound is Dolby 5.1 (other options are THX-certified and DTS 5.1) with French and English tracks. It's available for viewing in both standard and 1:85:1 widescreen versions. Along with the awesome visuals and sound, there are plenty of features to occupy viewers long after the movie is over. Highlights include background on how the special effects were created, a documentary on the sound design, a feature on "building a better dinosaur," and several games, including "Dinosearch" and "Aladar's Adventure." Also included are web links and a dinosaur encyclopedia. Disney went all out with this DVD, and it shows.
