Dinosaur Planet Animated Fanseries!

Recommended Posts

WayCool64

Since around 2010, I’ve been developing a fanmade animated series based around the unreleased video game Dinosaur Planet.

 

Most of you guys probably know about Dinosaur Planet and how it transitioned to Star Fox Adventures. If not, Dinosaur Planet was a game that was developed by Rareware and Nintendo and was supposed to be the Nintendo 64's swansong before Rare went on to developing next-gen titles on the Gamecube. The original project was soon rebranded into a Star Fox title after Nintendo saw similarities between DP protagonist Sabre and Star Fox's own Fox McCloud. Dinosaur Planet became a Gamecube title now known as Star Fox Adventures, with many differences besides the setting and cast changes. Nearly 1/2 of DP's original content was cut in the transition, and the new storyline of Starfox Adventures became a plothole ridden mess. Shortly after SFA's release, Rareware was purchased by Microsoft, spelling the end of Rare and Nintendo's partnership to this day.

Despite these events, the story of what would've been Rareware's last and greatest game on Nintendo 64 has not been forgotten. Even after many years, gamers and beta enthusiasts continued to look into the mysteries surrounding Dinosaur Planet and its transition into SFA. Now me and my team are here to pay tribute to one of the greatest lost Nintendo 64 games of all time.

 

The story of Dinosaur Planet follows two characters who must save a planet in peril. Along their journey they face many challenges, such as an evil reptilian tyrant, a destructive dragon, the mysterious Quan Ata Lachu, and many more.

 

We have planned out a total of 13 episodes. We currently have four of the episodes written out, but right now we are in the need of a new head writer, as our previous one had to leave due to unfortunate situations she needed to take care of. We are also in need of more animators. We have about 5 animators so far, but we are still looking for more who are skilled in either traditional or computer animation. The animation we plan for the series will be mostly traditional animation, mixed with minor CG bits used to enhance a few scenes. As for voice actors, we pretty much have most of the entire cast selected, but we are still in need of a few more minor roles.

As of right now, we have no budget for this project since we are trying to work around the copyright issues with Nintendo. Because of this, the work is mainly volunteering until further notice.

Below is an animated clip of the upcoming teaser trailer we plan to release later this Spring.

PS: I wasn't quite sure which section of the forum this topic fitted in since I wanted to include the link to the project's website and some of the rules are a bit confusing for me.

looks great! they literally stamped the name of star fox on Dinosaur Planet. i always thought and will think that this game would work better with his own plot

good luck!

Good luck to you, bud. To tell you the truth, I never disliked the idea of the original Dinosaur Planet idea, but when Starfox Adventures came out, I was dealing with a mean teacher, whom I now call an emotionally abusive Chemo patient. I get he was battling cancer, but that's no excuse for him to be a jerk. Starfox Adventures helped me to cope with that horrible time in my life and I have loved it ever since.

I'm sorry to hear that. There's nothing wrong about liking SFA

We haven't yet decided our artstyle. Here's an example of what else we can do.

I can't animate as well as that, but if you ever need an extra music guy, I can do a lot of different stuff.

Of course. When the trailer is finished, we plan to announce a livestream event for the premiere of it, which may also include a Q&A and other things.

Hey, I can use photoshop and are you looking for voice actors? I have a 4 octave voice so I think I can really help out with that. I can also help with cleaning up of frames in photoshop. WILL DO ANYTHING FOR THIS.

I also can compose a soundtrack for this. I have been playing piano for a total of 7 years and I have composed and written over 300 songs. I am willing to do that.

Maybe it is too late to make suggestions, but this would be absolutely adorable for the art style and matches the Rare character models.

      Krystal Becomes Infatuated with Cheese
      So we all know the story, it had something to do with cheese, and how with cheese Fox was easy to please.
      But there's more to it than that as this new tale shall prove, for this is when Krystal caught on to the groove.
      It started out a day like any other, but Krystal had moved on! Fox was away from her life, yes indeed gone. Mocked for having been part of Star Wolf briefly,
      she took up residence on the delightful Planet Kew. But her true feelings were just like her fur...very blue. So she joined a coven of fox girls just like her, hoping that for her sadness this would be the cure. But it wasn't you see, Fox wasn't gone, deep down in Krystal's heart Fox still lingered on.
      "I'm delighted to attend this meeting as you can see. I'm not the least bit lonely, I feel quite free!" said Krystal.
      "Good," said Fay sitting to the right of Krystal. "Let's do a conciousness raising session, with trees made of nettle!"
      "Sorry to interrupt but she takes cheese to each session. She has some Chedder and Feta right now, I have the most distinct impression" said Fara.
      "No, no, no, I'm not up for that. Why is everyone staring at me and Katt?" asked Krystal.
      "It's the cheeses behind your backs," said Fay with a smirk. "Why not share some with us? Might be a nice perk!"
      "No, I won't" said Katt. "I like cheese too much, cheese I must never lack. My only true boyfriend is Monteray Jack"
      Krystal sighed. She had never been a fan of cheese. But see, Fox was, and his soul was something Krystal just had to appease.
      "This cheese reminds me of someone I loved. Someone I cared for, kissed, and hugged" said Krystal, embarresed. She ran away.
      "She takes that cheese to every meeting here!" said Fay. "AND SHE NEVER EATS IT!" she added.
      KRYSTAL JUMPED IN HER ARWING WITH THE CHEESE IN TOW, SHE WASN'T FEELiNG TOO GOOD, THIS WE ALL KNOW
      "So they don't like me clutching on to cheese, do they? I wasn't about to convince them it was my baby, I need Fox Mccloud back, he's the mashed potato to my gravy" said Krystal. Feeling sad, with dejected eyes, she flew herself into a black hole.
      She got warped to Planet Earth, London UK to be exact. Krystal sounded like she came from there, we'll never know why. Perhaps it's past life stuff, but for now, gotta fly!
      Her arwing crashed and she jumped out with a parachute. She brushed dust off her legs and frantically searched the wreckage for cheese.
      She pulled out some cheese and got down on her knees.
      "Oh, cheese, you'll always be special to me. My one reminder of whom I love, Fox if you're still out there, please show me a dove" said Krystal.
      A dove flew down and stole her cheese. Krystal ran towards a policewoman.
      "You look rather blue," said the policewoman.
      "I am blue, my name is Krystal, yes it's true. A dove flew off into the sky with my cheese, he did not even ask first,
      nor did he say please!" replied Krystal.
      "I can't help you this instant, I think it's been too long a shift. I've never seen a fox person, if you get my drift. But cheese? Yes, it's delicious when spread over fresh mana. Krystal, has anyone told you that you sound just like Princess Diana?" said the cop.
      Krystal broke down in tears and yelled out to the Krazoa to take her away to Fox. So they gave her a test. A taste test of cheeses, conducted by them.
      The Krazoas loved cheese. With cheese they were easy to appease. So they brought her to where Fox was...sitting in a London pub, eating cheese and drinking wine, while helping Falco flick away a bug.
      "Fox," said Krystal tapping Fox on the back. "You know I'm the only one that can understand you, I just have a knack!"
      "Do I know you, blue lady? Oh, Krystal, that's right. It's called a rivalry okay? Let me get back to my rivalries!" said Fox, who then proceeded to chat with Falco.
      "That bird can buzz off, he's bloomin' pissing me off. Now Fox, look at me! We were a team, like Mcnee and Dianna Rigg. Would you forgive me if I handed you a fig?"
      "Figs are old school and I'm just as depressed as you. My nose is stuck to this table like glue!" said Fox.
      "Fox, I have cheese!" said Krystal. Fox looked at the cheese.
      "Get that away!" said Fox violently slapping away the food. Krystal's dress came undone, leaving her in a bikini. All the onlookers looked,
      Krystal, she was damn pretty!
      "Terrific, everyone's staring at me and my rack. Fox won't you please come back?" said Krystal.
      "Can't right now!" said Fox.
      "Oh, please, Fox, let's go right now! Repair to our Arwings, with that food made from a cow" said Krystal.
      "Food made from a cow?" asked Fox, with a twinkle in his eye. "You mean cheese right?"
      "Yes, Fox. Cheese!" said Krystal.
      "To heck with cheese!" said Fox. Krystal started to cry.
      "No, no, hear me out, you must know the reason why!" said Fox. Brushing away a tear, Krystal listened.
      "Krystal I realize I love you more than anything in the universe. You're the greatest gift ever, this I now know, let's rise from the pits where we sunk so low" said Fox. Fox looked into Krystal's eyes, so sweet and sublime. He saw the cheese in her hands, and realized she was one hundred percent divine.
      "I can't believe how foolish I was!" said Fox with a teary eyed grin. He hugged Krystal, and they both shared a kiss. The crowd was confused,
      but to Fox and Krystal, this was bliss.
      "Falco, just admit my boyfriend's a better pilot than you. Go home to your cat, she'll repair your beak like new!" said Krystal.
      Back in the Arwing:
      "You were actually going to change your name to Kursed?" asked Fox.
      "Yes, yes, yes I was. But now we have each other and a cargo hold full of cheese. And our beautiful sets of furs, free of all fleas!" replied Krystal.
      THE END

      Stuck on a ship with Slippy!
      "Well Krystal? We've gotta leave in a jiffy. But sadly, we've gotta leave behind Slippy" said Fox.
      "Slippy? He's so dippy! Why must you leave in such a jiffy?" asked Krystal.
      "We're leavin' you with the frog! It's hilarious and we're all for it!" said Peppy.
      "Why? Why? Why is this? Surely you realize we don't at all mix" said Krystal.
      "It was my idea," said Falco with a chuckle. "Just laugh it off, it won't strain a knuckle"
      "I'm an icon of skill, great beauty, and brains, Slippy's slimey and wimpy, and a bringer of pains!" shouted Krystal.
      Slippy looked like his feelings were hurt, but Krystal just scoffed, as if he were dirt.
      "It won't be so bad, you'll see. We're off to get some space groceries, just Falco and me" said Fox.
      "Peppy, won't you stay? Please, please Peppy I implore you, I'll PAY!" said Krystal.
      "I'm goin' too, so don't hold your breath. I'm sick of being responsible for Slippy's certain death" said Peppy.
      Krystal and Slippy were alone.
      "Okay, Slippy, well this will have to do. Want to play Checkers or jump on the trampoline of goo?" asked Krystal.
      "I'm gonna go repair Fox's arwing!" said Slippy.
      "No, Slippy wait, I'm sorry I said all those things. When it comes to frogs of talent, um, you're among KINGS!" said
      Krystal.
      "You really think so?" asked Slippy.
      "Yes, yes, yes I do. A toad who builds spaceships? Most can't build a shoe!" said Krystal.
      "Oh, alright, I'll play Checkers" said Slippy.
      Krystal won.
      "Well, well, Slippy that sure was fun, but don't go just yet, I want something done" said Krystal.
      "What's thaT?" asked Slippy.
      "I want you to come over now and kiss my feet, you're bloody well cute and I've just noticed it" said Krystal. So Slippy did so, much to Krystal's amusement.
      "You won, oh queen of checkers" said Slippy.
      "Yes, yes, yes, please no applause" said Krystal.
      Later...
      Slippy was reduced to a puddle of slime, but Krystal caught him in a bucket, then looked at the slime confused.
      She poked it with a stirring apparatus then backed away.
      "Don't worry, it was something I ate, and also I regenerate!" said Slippy, in an assuring tone.
      Later...after he regenerated...
      "You shot me!" said Slippy as he was playing Call of Duty.
      "Oh really? I think I'll shoot you again, right in your frog booty!" said Krystal.
      Later...
      "TABLE TENNIS IS SCARY!" said Slippy.
      "I know, I know" replied Krystal, laughing.
      Later, on a water bed...
      "That was strange," said Slippy.
      "I know, I know" said Krystal, taking a puff from a cigarette. "Table tennis is a peculiar thing,"
      Slippy's eyes widened.
      Later...
      "Look, Slippy you're wonderful but this isn't going to work. I'm sorry if I've been a bit of a jerk. You're a frog I'm a fox and its my natural response,
      but now that we've been together, we've had some jolly good romps" said Krystal.
      "Thanks Krystal" said Slippy, wiping away a tear. Krystal and Slippy held each others hands, and they looked like they were about to kiss, my that was a scene
      Fox would want to miss.
      The others came back.
      "Krystal, don't steal our soldier, he won't turn into a prince, he'll just whimper and wince" said Peppy.
      "It's a prank, trust me" said Fox.
      "It's nothing really, nothing at all. Just helping him feel better, for being green, slimey, and small" replied Krystal, turning red.
      "Stealin' our soldier. What should we do Fox?" asked Peppy.
      "It's a joke, TRUST ME, I know both of them all too well!" said Fox.
      "It ain't no joke, I think we should have em both court martialed!" said Peppy.
      "UGH! This is why I hate fanfiction! Of all possible pairings, UGH!" said Krystal storming off in a huff.
      "Told ya. Court martialing time!" said Peppy.

      Hello everyone. ^^
      My name is MidnightMike, and I'm here to show you my tribute animation to the original Star Fox, which celebrated it's 25th anniversary this past March.
      I know it might not be as good as you were hoping, but I had fun making it. Here it is. :)

      The Krystal Lovers Association forum and site have officially announced they are permanently shuttering, for good this time, on March 16, 2018. Yes, they did announce doing it before years ago, but apparently they only delayed what has been deemed inevitable. Current forum/site owner "eggman9713" largely lost faith and interest in the Star Fox series, and believes message boards are a dying breed of community interaction anyway. It does not help that Krystal's character has not made a significant appearance in a Star Fox title since 2006's Star Fox Command. Looks like the end of an era for yet another piece of fandom community among Star Fox enthusiasts online.

      What do you guys think of this situation?
