The upcoming 3D feature take on BBC Earth’s Walking with Dinosaurs has tacked on four new voice cast members for the Fox release. Narrating the prehistoric tale will be John Leguizamo as Alex the Alexomis bird. Justin Long will lead the film’s trio of Pachyrhinosauruses as Alex’s pal Patchi, while Tiya Sircar and Skyler Stone will play companion dinos Juniper and Scowler.

The film, based on the 1999 miniseries, is directed by Barry Cook and Neil Nightingale. Set in the Late Cretaceous period 70 million years ago, it follows the three Pachyrhinosaurus as they mature from infants into adulthood and set out on a herd migration, encountering a predatory Gorgosaurus along the way. Fox will release Walking with Dinosaurs 3D on December 20.

    Good choices for the voice cast! John did a fantastic job voicing Sid the Sloth in the 4 Ice Age Movies and I’m sure that he’ll do a fantastic job voicing Alex the Alexomis Bird and Justin did a fantasic job voicing Lem in Planet 51 and I’m sure he’ll do a fantastic job voicing Alex’s pal Patchi! I can’t wait to see PLANET WITH DINOSAURS! I LOVE ANIMATION!
