In what feels like a revival of the classic Walking With Dinosaurs series, Prehistoric Planet combines cutting-edge visual effects with natural cinematography to depict dinosaurs during the Cretaceous period, spanning biomes like water, forests, and icy lands.
The trailer opened up with the choice of Sir David, saying: “Join us for a story you have never heard, on a scale you have never witnessed.”
The 1: 58 minutes trailer revealed that the Tyrannosaurus rex species were caring parents, it also shows that fathers played the biggest role as caregivers. The trailer shows us that they used nuzzling to communicate because they had highly sensitive faces.
The teaser also shows that the baby Tyrannosaurus rex had feathers and the species was capable of living in a vast range of habitats as they are seen on a beach.
