Storyline

During an attack on a pack of Iguanodon, an egg is separated and ends up with the possession of a group of lemurs. The lemurs care for this egg and the young creature born from it, which they call Aladar. When a meteor shower hits earth, Aladar and his family must leave their homeland. Away from home and as close to danger as they have ever been, they meet up with a huge group of dinosaurs, led by Kron and Bruton. All together they are trying to reach the nesting grounds, but it's not going to be easy. Written by simon

Trivia

In order to separate this from the similar movie The Land Before Time (1988), the film was intended not to have any dialogue at all, but Michael Eisner of Disney insisted they include it. See more »

Goofs

There are many other inconsistencies between the fictional representation of dinosaurs in the movie and accepted scientific knowledge at the time the movie was made. It should, perhaps, be remembered that it's family entertainment, not a documentary. See more »

Another Advancement In Animation
28 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was yet another example, when it came out in 2000, of the latest strides being made in animation, computer-or-otherwise. At the time, I thought to myself, "Man, this just gets better and better all the time." Six years later, I am still saying that but with newer animated efforts.

Some of the scenes in here look so real you wouldn't know they were drawings. The colors are particularly good in the opening minutes. They are just stunning at times.

The story is pretty interesting, too. It's not great, but not boring, either, and not too kid-oriented. Adults can enjoy this. In fact, I was surprised at the amount of violence. That, and some of the jokes actually make this more for adults than kids in many spots.

I recommend the movie for its story and innovative techniques.
