The dinosaur Edmontonia isn't identified by name because the executives at Fox were afraid that viewers would confuse it with the similarly named Edmontosaurus. Instead, Edmontonia is referred to as an ankylosaur, which is the name for a broader group of dinosaurs that it belonged to. However, since unlike English, many languages don't differentiate between the "-saur" and "-saurus" suffixes, this consequently means that in some foreign language dubs, the animal is called Ankylosaurus. This, however, is incorrect, as Ankylosaurus, though itself an ankylosaur, was a totally different animal from Edmontonia. See more »

If you see this expecting a grown-up style documentary, you'll be disappointed. It's clearly made for a very young audience, and I think they did a fantastic job in that regard.
The animation was fantastic,it was quite educational, it had characters that the kids fall in love with, and it wasn't too long. My 6 year old has been on a real dino-kick all year, and she was on the edge of her seat for this entire film. She even thought the humor was hilarious. If you like watching your kid really enjoy something, take them to this film. If you want something for the entire family, including grown ups, then you're better off with something else. I see the negative reviews, and I can't help but think that a lot of folks just have the wrong expectations.
