Anndi McAfee, who took over as the voice of Cera, not only had previously been the voice of Amber the Corythosaurus in Dink, the Little Dinosaur (1989) (another animated series about Young Dinosaurs), but also happens to be the Older Sister of Scott McAfee, who'd been the voice of Littlefoot in the 3 previous films in the series.

Littlefoot's Grandmother's neck is always beige throughout the movie. When Grandmother and Grandfather have a chat about Littlefoot and his disappearance, Grandmother's neck is suddenly dark green and sort of glows. See more »

I love the first "Land Before Time", and still consider it one of the better Don Bluth movies. I have liked most of the sequels, but there have been some I have not liked(more about that another time). Along with "Great Valley Adventure" and "Time of the Great Giving", "Mysterious Island" is one of the better ones. The animation, while not as sophisticated or as handsome as the visual style of the first film, is nice and colourful, and I think it is one of the better animated sequels of the franchise. The incidental music is lovely, and while not particularly memorable, the songs are pleasant "Always There" especially is very touching. And the voice acting is excellent, and the characters are at least likable. Who cannot love that adorable Chomper? All these positives make up for a too-short duration, a touch too simplistic writing and a plot that takes a tad too long to get going. I also thought the singing was mixed, Cera's singing was beautiful but Ducky sounded off for some reason. Asides from these flaws, this is a surprisingly pleasant and watchable sequel. 6/10 Bethany Cox
