WWD sequel or remake
« on: September 25, 2019, 12:28:15 AM »
WWD was an amazing documentary as many of you will agree. But I was wondering. If BBC suddenly decide to reboot the series, would you rather see a sequel to WWD. Covering new dinosaurs, time period, and places etc. Or a remake. Redoing it with better effects and our current knowledge. Just out of curiosity.
Did you know if you drink the juice in a magic eight ball you can see the future!?!

I think I'd prefer more of a remake, including updates to some of the more iconic ecosystems but also expanded to include more.  Something like 12 episodes: 3 Triassic, 4 Jurassic, and 5 Cretaceous maybe.

I would like maybe more episodes, new dinosaurs and locations but also revisiting the iconic ones with an updated approach.

This. We've learned so much since 1999 that remakes of the original episodes PLUS some all new episodes would make the most sense. Besides, the original WWD already has sequels that could also use remakes (I.e. TBOBA, WWB, & WWM).

I'd definitely like another series like it, rather it be a reboot or sequel. Many of the other beloved BBC documentary series have had sequels (like Planet Earth, Blue Planet, maybe others), I think this one is long overdue, and honestly imagine the footage we could get in this day and age for something like this with the current camera technology and techniques used in those docs for scenery scouting, etc, and that's not even counting how far CGI and animatronics have come, as well as paleontological discoveries made since the original trilogy, and especially since the WWD series, which was the first. And honestly when was the last time we had a decent prehistoric documentary series like this?

I would definitely rather see them tackle new settings with different species in different parts of the world. There are plenty of fossil formations that have never had the attention of a competent documentary team, which could expose people to ancient ecosystems they didn't know existed.

I would like them to do new species, new locations, new ecosystems.
WWD was   a fantastic TV show!

Yeah, I would be really interested in an episode about the Csehbánya Formation (and I would search out that episode in English just to hear how the narrator manages the Hungarian originated names). And it would be a good alternative than Hateg/Hátszeg which was in Dinosaur Planet and Planet Dinosaur too.

I wasn't familiar with that formation! It looks to be very diverse, and being Santonian in age, it presents an interesting comparison to some intervals of the Niobrara formation in North America.

Yeah, since 2000 the Iharkút site is got really well known among the Hungarian geologists. The site is now an abandoned bauxit pitmine but in 2000 was still a working mine. And before that it was a village (the poor late Iharkút). Really suprising what were found there: the first freshwater mosasaur (Pannoniasaurus inexpectatus), the first ceratopsian from Europe (Ajkaceratops kozmai) and an herbivore crocodilian (Iharkutosuchus makadii) among other creatures. The new genusnames mostly originates from the area (towns, Bakony Mountains etc.), the speciesnames from different person. Except Foxemys trabanti- the excavation's symbol is an old Trabant.

Sounds ideal. And hopefully there would be a series of toys to go along with them. I'd love a plastic Iharkutosuchus.

The Iharkutosuchus was Attila Ősi's PhD essay. As a first year student I heard it myself when he presented it. Only the skull and jaw are known but I think the photo about the skull is more a symbol than the much better known Hungarosaurus or any other creature.
