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 meteorites hit 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

This movie was never aired on any pay-television network, up until 2017, when this film was a part of Showtime's catalogue of archival titles from Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. Showtime was the first and only pay-television network to air this film. See more »

Goofs

The Carnotaurs seen in the film were much bigger than their real life counterparts. In reality the were smaller than Iguanodon (Aladar's species), whereas here they are made even larger than some of the biggest dinosaur predators (like Tyrannosaurus). This was presumably done for dramatic effect and wouldn't be the first time such a change has been made (the Velociraptors from Jurassic Park are also several times the size of the actual animals).

Quotes

Plio: 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.

What is peoples problem?
8 April 2015 | by felix-bergmanSee all my reviews

I honestly don't see why people are so upset whit this movie. Yes, there is talking dinosaurs, but how are you supposed to understand them otherwise. Mute dinosaurs walking around wouldn't be interesting at all and remember, this is a kid's movie. And yes, the animation might not be as good as in Jurassic Park, but this is a fully animated movie, JP used a mix of animatronics and CGI inside an otherwise live action movie, and in a interview I saw, Spielberg (or if it was a special effects guy, I don't remember) said that they would use the animatronics when ever possible and only cover up rigs and refine movement with the computer 'cause the CGI models looked like crap in comparison the robots. And yes, the story has been used before, but so has the story in most films we're watching today, only in varying degree and in different mixes and it's not like Disney is known for their originality story wise. As good as everyone of their Classics are based or inspired by other works.

Personally I love this movie. The CGI is still good, and at times more realistic than many rushed animations we see today, the characters are fun to follow, unlike Land before Time were they were unbearable and made me hate the movie (even as a kid the first one was never my favorite) despite a similar story to Dinosaurs', which I by the way like, and the moral of it is a really good one.
