What if… the Dinosaurs Never Died Out?

21 August, 2011

Here’s a snippet of news spotted by Michael Carroll:

Disney has announced a couple of new Pixar movies, one of which is an untitled movie about dinosaurs to be directed by Finding Nemo screenwriter Bob Peterson. The film is due for 2013 release.

Why do we care about this? Because Reuters and other sources have reported that Disney have Tweeted about the film saying: “What if that life-changing asteroid missed Earth? Director Bob Peterson’s hilarious tale depicts a world where dinosaurs never went extinct.”

Sound familiar? If it wasn’t for the ‘hilarious’ part, we’d swear they were talking about West of Eden…

This has to be one of the oddest choices for a cover for a book in the West of Eden series. This is the Czech edition of Return to Eden published by Straky Na Vrbe (if I’m reading that correctly) in 2000.

I don’t know what the covers for the other volumes in the series looked like, but… the trilogy isn’t really about cute dinosaurs is it? Or maybe I missed the point of the whole series. :)
