Wikipedia states: “The movie will combine live action, suitmation, animatronics and CGI. The seven creatures will be actors in up to 275 centimetres tall suits made of foam, although it is expected that their faces will be computer-generated. The film’s target release date is October 3, 2008. Filming began in April of 2006 at Central City Studios in Melbourne, Australia. Some location filming happened in the Queensland rain forest early in 2007. Adam Keenan and John Nolan will be responsible for the animatronics. The film is currently in post-production.”

Can’t wait :-)
