Littlefoot and his pals set off in search of a "stone of cold fire" that fell from the night sky. Since he's the only one who has seen it though, nobody really believes him. Petrie's uncle Pterano offers support only because he thinks the stone has secret powers and wants it for himself but conceals this from the rest. The young dinos must figure out the truth, before Pterano gets the power.Written by
There is a scene when Littlefoot, Cera, Petrie, and Spike are crossing a canyon on vines, and Cera complains that every time they do this she is always at the back of the line. However, Spike is almost always the one at the back of the line, not counting Petrie, who flies across, with one exception in The Land Before Time VI: The Secret of Saurus Rock, when they are quickly crossing a log while being chased by a Sharptooth. However, during this scene Cera is the first to cross and Littlefoot is the last. See more »
While Pterano is flying with his henchmen after they had kidnapped Ducky, he clearly has a completely different color scheme. His skin is a greenish blue while in the rest of the movie, it's a brownish orange. See more »
[most of the dinosaurs in the Great Valley are sleeping]
Oh Spike, I cannot sleep.
[Spike asks something to Ducky]
No, I am not hungry. I am worried about Petrie. Friends should not make friends feel so bad, no, no, no. I am going to find Petrie! I am going to make things all better!

On current digital printings and STARZ and HBO airings/streaming platforms, there have been many alterations to the film:
The 1997 Universal Pictures logo is now zoomed in.
Both title cards are now shown right before the comets zoom into the light during the opening scene
The fiery comet which Littlefoot sees at night is now yellow instead of blue (although it remains blue during the song "Beyond the Mysterious Beyond").
The fiery pit which blows Littlefoot and his friends out of Threehorn Peak and the small boulder they stand on are entirely reanimated
The pillar of light at the very end is more shiny.
The late-1990's Universal Television logo is added right before the Universal Cartoon Studios logo (which is mysteriously sourced from The Land Before Time V: The Mysterious Island, judging from the last second of the end credits music being heard between both logos).
A lot of LBT's are childish nonsense, even good ones such as LBT 2 and LBT 3. However, this one actually deals with a few adult issues, which is extraordinarily strange for a LBT. Of course, it deals with child issues as well, in case you didn't realise. This film also has Michael York as a new "flier" called Pterano.
This film also has pleasant songs, good humour and a gripping adventure so it should be good for any LBT fan - or most other people as well! Yet another thing about this film that sets it apart is that it has different animation from any other LBT film, before and after.
The plot goes like this: Littlefoot wakes up in the middle of the night after some wanderers have come to the valley and sees an amazing light fall onto a mountain nearby. No-one really believes Littlefoot when he tells many dinosaurs about it, but he is determined to go out and find it. Meanwhile, Petrie's uncle has suddenly appeared from crashing onto a tree branch...
So enjoy this different, good quality sequel, "Land Before Time: The Stone Of Cold Fire"! :-)
