Steven Spielberg and George Lucas originally wanted the film to have no dialog, like the Rite of Spring sequence in Fantasia (1940). But, to make the film appealing to children, they abandoned this idea, and got actors and actresses to do the voices. See more »
The dinosaurs existed in three different periods: Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous. However, all the dinosaurs, as well as other prehistoric animals who appeared in this movie did not all exist in the same period. Triceratops, Parasaurolophus, Pachycephalosaurus, Tyrannosaurus, and Pteranodon were Cretaceous animals, while Apatosaurus (called Brontosaurus here) and Stegosaurus were Jurassic dinosaurs. Meanwhile, Dimetrodon, erroneously portrayed with a snake-like tongue, was actually a mammal-like reptile that lived way before the dinosaurs, more than 100 million years before this movie takes place.

Once upon this same earth, beneath this same sun, long before you, before the ape and the elephant, as well; before the wolf, the bison, the whale, before the mammoth and the mastodon, in the time of the dinosaurs.

I've adored this film ever since I first saw it at the cinema in '88. Sweet Littlefoot, Bold Cera, Chatty Ducky, Timid Petrie & Greedy Spike are the cutest dinosaurs ever. Anyone unmoved by their adventures must have a heart of stone. The animation is superb and so is the soundtrack. Each dinosaur has a distinctive personality and you laugh and cry with them throughout. I only wish the film had been longer. The sequels are cute but it is the original that has the most heart. 10/10
