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
This was the first sequel in The Land Before Time film franchise to be released on DVD. See more »
In the flashback sequence detailing why Pterano is met with scorn by the adults of the Great Valley, Grandpa Longneck explains that after the Great Earthshake, the adults communed and traveled together as a group, with no one's opinion outweighing the other. This contradicts with much of the "racism" expressed in the first Land Before Time film, in which many of the herds kept to their own kind. See more »
I wanted to make everything perfect. I just wanted to create a paradise!
We already have paradise back in Great Valley. You no need to fix, just got to not break.

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).
Like the original, a well crafted heatwarming tale. This storyline is full of morals and lessons from fanily, trust, democracy, greed, honour, teamwork, friendship and much more.
The animation is traditional and simplistic with some innccuracies of depictions of species' features and some inaccuacies between Mesozoic and Cenozoic periods. However the dubbing is amazing with characters vocal patterns and use of language being correlative to the species presumed intelligence.
Unlike the original this has several musical numbers which seem dubious in the context of the series. The songs seem to get marginally better throughout the series.
A must watch for kids.
