This stuff is certainly unfortunate. I, too, hate people raising false hopes but in the end, there's not much to be added to the previous posts. :(petrie I, for one, am not too happy with another re-release after this disappointment.

No. I just simply don't understand why they mentioned LBT. Did they just pick absolutely random cartoon universe to mention it in "joke" part of tweet?

Edit: ninjad.
There's no false hopes since there's always hope, I think.
Or else we all would just give up after LBT Series ended and there was 8 years gap.

That's fair enough even if things are far from encouraging these days. Soon it'll be three years since JOTB and we still have no information from Universal they even consider the series to be alive. It's true that there was a 8-year gap between the TV series and JOTB but after another financial debacle, it's probable the threshold for Universal to start resurrecting LBT again will be even higher. As for the initial tweet, no one here can say, but I hope that person gets fired asap. x(cera

But yeah, for serious reply, I actually am surprised by the timing of this mention given that LBT is nearing its 30th anniversary, especially given that they already made a Blu-Ray release for the original film so a re-release seems a little underwhelming.

Perhaps, probably bad timing is at fault here but I'm not them so I really can't say.

They taunt us. Knowing full well we hang on to hope like Spike does snack.

So I think the series is pretty much over, then? That is unfortunate.

For now, it seems so but considering how creative studios are these, I'd be shocked if Universal never again tried to resurrect LBT. Ms. Hunter's message implied LBT still brings profits Universal so the chances that the series will continue one day are rather decent.

I think the key is to get a new generation interested in dionsaurs. I hate to admit it, but LBT might have to take a chapter from Pixar and Illumination and start making their films in that kind of animation. LBT needs another theatrical release to really revive the franchise. They need Stephen Spielberg to executive produce, and a cast of voice overs that can be instantly recognized like in the Ice Age movies.

Given how the original is such a classic, I greatly resent the idea of letting the series shift to CGI. Traditional animation has become a dying breed, and I would hate for it to become extinct in the film industry. We're living in a time where I would declare traditional animation to be the equivalent of an endangered species, and if they ever do make LBT XV, they'll need to understand that some changes may be needed while others won't quite be necessary. This is one of many complaints I have about how children's media feels inferior compared to about 30 years ago.

As much as I would love for traditional 2D animation to flourish like it did during the Renaissance age of Animation, I'm forced to admit that 3D CGI animation will stay for quite a while (which isn't too bad, CGI animate films can look great given the budget) as it's just plain easier for the animators compared to hand-drawn animation and what the audience is after nowadays anyway. Not just for animated films, but to some extent cartoons as well. Heck, even the LBT sequels are partially CG-animated when outsourced.

That said, a traditionally animated reboot will be baller, but is less likely to happen than a live-action Land Before Time.

Is there not a new method of animation go convert 3D into 2D or in the very least make it possible to animate 2D as easily as 3D? Or has the techonology to make 2D as easy to animate not been invented because of the lack of demand?

Since we're on the topic of 2D animation versus 3D animation, I'd actually like to point you guys to a short film released by Disney not too long ago, called "Paperman". It's a perfect blend of 2D and 3D animation and I think it looks beautiful.

If LBT is going to need a theatrical reboot to reel in new fans and keep the franchise alive, I think animating it like "Paperman" will ideally be the best way to go. It's the best of both worlds, so to speak.
