Walking with Dinosaurs is a 2013 family film about dinosaurs 70 million years ago.

The production features computer-animated dinosaurs in live-action settings with actors John Leguizamo, Justin Long, Tiya Sircar, and Skyler Stone providing voiceovers for the main characters.

The film was produced by BBC Earth and Evergreen Films and was named after BBC's 1999 television documentary miniseries. The crew filmed footage on location in the US state of Alaska and in New Zealand, which were chosen for their similarities to the dinosaurs' surroundings millions of years ago.

Animal Logic designed computer-animated dinosaurs and added them to the live-action backdrop. Though the film was originally going to have a narrator like in the miniseries, it was decided to add voiceovers, believing it would connect audiences to the characters.
