        For those of you who do not live, breath and eat Star Wars the eight
hours of the day you do not do the same for dinosaurs, Joe Johnston was
involved in the production design of Empire and Jedi, and I believe A New
Hope as well. I other words, he helped design most of the vehicles you saw
on the screen. IMHO, the man is a master of visual style. I do not remember
his directing credits offhand, but a quick check on the Web turned up The
Rocketeer and Jumanji. I remember him having done a couple more movies as
well. Anyway, maybe, just maybe, we'll get to see DIFFERENT dinosaurs this
time. Since he was hangin' with Horner, hopefully some will be hadrosaurs! :)
