The Great Day of the Flyers
20 April 2009 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

The Land Before Time XII: The Great Day of the Flyers, the 12th installment in the Land Before Time series, not the best sequel, but still very cute. I can't believe how many sequels there are, not that I'm complaining, just I feel like I'm becoming a dinosaur after seeing all these movies. But I digress, the Great Day of the Flyers is a fun little sequel that deserves more notice and credit than it's given. As silly as these movies are, they provide great lessons, fun animation, good songs, and how could you not enjoy your time with Littlefoot and his friends? It's fun to see who also might be added into the group and I like that the writers are continuing some of the stories like with Cera and her father being with his new girlfriend, Tria. Also this story provides what a lot of kids have to go through, the curiosity of having a new brother or sister added into the family. Or how Petrie doesn't feel so special and wants to be like his brothers and sisters that can fly well. That's why I think these sequels are great for the kids, just a new way of expressing a story to make them feel a little more relatable, except for the flying part, but you get what I mean.

Petrie is having a difficult time preparing for "The Day of the Flyers", an important day for all of the flying residents of the Great Valley, when all of the young flyers must participate in a very precise flying exhibition to prove that they are ready to fly with the adults. Always a nervous flyer, Petrie has even more trouble flying with his siblings in precise group formations he's more of an independent, free-style flier. At the same time, a strange newcomer to the Great Valley has Littlefoot and his friends trying to help figure out just exactly what he is. The creature's name is Guido, he's the strangest looking creature any of the Great Valley creatures has ever seen, especially since he's covered with feathers, and has never seen another like himself. Cera is having her own troubles, as her grumpy dad and his new mate, Tria, get ready to welcome a hatchling to the family. All of these issues come together on the night before "The Day of the Flyers", when Guido starts to figure out what he is, inadvertently leading all of the gang on a perilous adventure into the Mysterious Beyond.

The Land Before Time XII: The Great Day of the Flyers is a fun little sequel and I can't believe that I'm almost done with these stories, but knowing the writers, I'm sure we'll have a Land Before Time 25 before I die. But I do seriously recommend watching these movies with your family, they're great for the kids and even the adults can get into them. It's silly fun, and I love watching them as cheesy as they may be. My friend says that she won't watch them because of the singing and silly story lines, which I think is a problem for most viewers and not to mention that people are just upset that there are so many of these sequels, but give them a break, they're very good movies. How could you ever not like Petrie or Ducky? If you don't, you have no heart.
