Dinosaurs will once again roam international soil when the globally-acclaimed production, Walking With Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular, based on the award-winning BBC Television Series, returns in 2018, starring Michaela Strachan as Huxley the paleontologist. Watched by over 9 million people in more than 250 cities around the world. This updated production will showcase spectacular and colourful changes to the dinosaurs based on the latest scientific research including the likely feathering of some species.
Nine species are represented from the entire 200 million year reign of the dinosaurs. The show includes the Tyrannosaurus Rex, the terror of the ancient terrain, as well as the Plateosaurus and Liliensternus from the Triassic period, the Stegosaurus and Allosaurus from the Jurassic period and Torosaurus and Utahraptor from the awesome Cretaceous period. The largest of them, the Brachiosaurus, is 11 metres tall and 17 metres from nose to tail. It took a team of 50 – including engineers, fabricators, skin makers, artists painters, and animatronic experts – a year to build the production.
