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
One creature that was designed but cut from the final film was a Mosasaurus, a large, sea-dwelling reptile that would have been used in a scene where the Herd goes to a river to drink and encounters the Mosasaurus. In some video game versions of Dinosaur (2000), however, the Mosasaurus makes an appearance. See more »
At one point during the migration, Aladar is talking to one of the lemurs who are riding on his back, but the other three lemurs are missing. In the next shot, all four are again on his back. See more »
Some things start out big, and some things start out small, very small. But sometimes the smallest thing can make the biggest changes of all.

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.
