1988, 69 Minutes, Directed by: Don Bluth
Description:An orphaned young dinosaur, Littlefoot, has to make
his way to the paradise of the Great Valley in order to survive a plague. Along
the way, he meets up with some other dinos from different species, and they all
bond and travel together. On the way, they have plenty of adventures. —
feature about dinosaurs in search of mythical land where there
would be enough other dinosaurs to eat and so on. Bluth
previously worked for Disney and it shows in the animation.
However, it isn't exactly much better than most Saturday morning kid
Ironically Disney would
requisition the plot its entirety for its much-hyped and luke-warm computer
animated Dinosaur feature. This wasn't the only time it would happen to
poor Don Bluth however: sharper observers would remark on the similarities
between his Titan AE and Disney's later
Treasure Planet - and we're not talking just the
fact that both tanked at the box office here.
Followed by innumerable
straight-to-video sequels - too many to mention here!
