Dinosaur Extras

Here are the full specs for both the standard £22.99 release and the £24.99 collector's edition of Dinosaur taken directly from the Disney press release:

Standard release

  • Three set top games:
    Aladar’s Adventure – a Virtual reality game with 3 levels that tests the viewer’s memory. First you help Aladar find his friends hidden in the caves. Once they’ve all been found, the search goes on for water. After the water has been found, the goal is to break out from the caves and find the nesting ground.
    Dinosearch – The player will be given three screens of CGI models of Dinosaurs throughout the screens and the player must pick the proper pieces to make up the whole Dinosaur. Each dinosaur has a different bone structure.
    Dinopedia – The viewer will listen to fun facts about each kind of Cretacious creature. There is a boy who narrates over the footage from the movie. The Boy explains each of the creatures and gives history behind them.

  • Behind the Scenes Viewing Mode:
    By Selecting the “Behind the Scenes Viewing Mode” option from the menu, the viewer (while watching the film) can access “making of” materials relating to a particular sequence by selecting a special icon that will pop-up on the screen at appropriate times. This will take the viewer away from the film to see behind-the-scenes materials relevant to that scene (See Below). After viewing the material, the viewer will automatically be returned to the same point in the film.

    If the viewer does not want to watch the movie to see these behind-the-scenes materials, they can also be accessed, separately, from a menu.
