Re: Disney's upcoming "Dinosaur" animated film

May I respectfully refer this thread to past posts on the dinosaur list in
which it was discussed (forever) according to the latest and greatest rumors of
the day.

In the interest of brevity, various professionals came and went, and the film
will be CGI animated and NOT "Beauty and the Beast" style animated.

Various websites (including our own) carry ongoing news about this film.
