Product Description

Product Description

Join the action-packed adventure of a group of dinosaurs overcoming enormous challenges through courage, loyalty and hope in Disney's DINOSAUR, a special effects phenomenon! Set 65 million years ago, DINOSAUR tells the compelling story of Aladar, an iguanadon who is separated from his own kind and raised by a clan of lemurs, including the wisecracking Zini and the compassionate Plio. When a meteor shower destroys their home, Aladar and his family follow a herd of dinosaurs heading for the safety of the "nesting grounds." Along the way, Aladar befriends Baylene, an elderly brachiosaur; Eema, an unstoppable styrachosaur; and Neera, a feisty fellow iguanadon. Together, they must stand strong amidst food and water shortages, the threat of carnotaur attacks, and Aladar's run-ins with the herd's stubborn leader, Kron. A landmark in filmmaking technology, DINOSAUR's theatrical quality is fully captured in this High Definition Blu-ray(TM) and DVD, which features a digital-to-digital transfer that ensures the best possible picture and sound quality!

Special Features

The two-disc Collector's Edition speaks directly to the film's core audience: kids and animation enthusiasts. Along with a widescreen version of the film, the first disc is very kid-friendly with two games ("Aladar's Adventure" is quite fun) and an informative short naming the dinosaurs seen in the movie. Using the "Fossil Dig" mode to watch the film, a viewer can see behind-the-scenes footage during certain scenes, as a dinosaur icon appears in the corner of the screen, and then is taken back to the film automatically. This is a great way to see the movie anew during repeated showings. As with previous Disney DVDs, there is plenty on the animation process on the second disc--hundreds of sketches, examples of the complex layering of scenes, and illustrations of the different forms of filmmaking from storyboards to 3-D workbooks. Six dropped sequences are shown (in various stages of completion) that hint at a darker-toned film. Best are the segments of how the show-stopping scenes (the asteroid impact, the "dino" cam) were created and some early presentation reels. The two commentary tracks are standard fare, but the hidden "Easter Eggs" (hidden features--look for the dinosaur-head skeleton) are quite fun, delving into other dinosaur tidbits from the Disney archives. --Doug Thomas --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars "GREAT!" July 7 2007
Format:DVD
I know this movie didn't get the best reviews ever, but it is just that many people are beliving that the movie is copy-catting "The Land Before Time". THAT'S NOT TRUE! This movie was created to show kids that they should get along in tough times, and be a team. Most people arn't getting that message.

Although this movie does have major flaws, it still is worth buying. What flaws you ask? For instance, the star of the show, Aladar, is an Iguanodon. The main villain in the show, is a Carnotaurus. Unlike the movie, Carnotaurus was much smaller than any Iguanodon.

But I reccomend you still buy it! It's really worth more than it is advertised.

3.0 out of 5 stars Stunning animation, silly plot. Feb. 9 2004
Format:DVD
Dinosaur (Eric Lighton and Ralph Zondag, 2000)
Why does Disney insist that every animated film have two directors? Just wondering.
In any case, when I first saw the previews for this, I had hopes it was going to be a full-length animated silent film. So I ended up initially disappointed, but at least they got some fun voices.
Newbie director Leighton and second-timer Zondag (whose earlier film was the painfully bad dinosaur flick We're Back!) have, basically, done an update of The Land Before Time with stunning animation and (to say the least) a better voice-acting cast. Where The Land Before Time used unknowns (though Helen Shaver has since gone on to relative fame), Dinosaur started with the works: D. B. Sweeney (Strange Luck), Ossie Davis (Do the Right Thing, Bubba Ho-Tep), Alfre Woodard (Holiday Heart, A Wrinkle in Time), Max Casella (Doogie Howser MD), Julianna Margulies (ER), Della Reese (Touched by an Angel)... you get the idea.
The story is your typical cutesy Disney pablum (if you're expecting Winged Migration after watching the incredible trailers for this flick, steel yourself for political correctness now) overlaid upon the Land Before Time storyline; best if we leave it at that. If you're going to rent this, rent it for the astounding animation and leave the sound off. **

4.0 out of 5 stars A Visual Buffet of Dinosaurs Feb. 6 2004
Format:DVD
"Dinosaur" is a fine film from the folks at Disney. Like "Hercules," the story isn't moving or too impressive, but the film is fun to watch and has some brilliant moments in it. Many people have bashed the film for being too violent, but the PG rating does seem fair. I agree that kids under the age of five shouldn't see this movie without some serious adult supervision, but at the same time, children do need to know about death...even if it's violent. The Carnotaur sequences involve quite a bit of violence, but these are dinosaurs! Dinosaurs ate each other in reality. Don't knock this movie for that reason. Here's a concept: Watch the movie with your kids(you won't be bored) and then explain to them that death and violence was a very real part of daily life for dinosaurs. It may take your children a little time to cope with this information, but sometimes the truth hurts. If your child is under the age of five, you may want to skip certain sequences in the movie because of the violence. My daughter watched this movie, but I always managed to skip through the violent parts for one reason: she's two years old. She loves this movie. When she gets old enough to understand that things die, I'll let her see the violent sequences in this film.
For adults, I found this movie very entertaining. As in other reviews, I agree that the visuals are stunning. The film is brilliantly animated and does use some real scenery to blend in with the CGI graphics. The differences in the two are almost seamless. The lemurs provide both comic relief and solid wisdom in this flick.
If for no other reason, buy this movie for it's artistic value, but the story is a good one and the characters are very believable. It's a good show, but I cannot help but reiterate the importance of watching this show with young kids in order to explain some of the things that occur in it.

If you've got kids, take them to see this movie! It's incredible -- sort of. BUT, personally, I wouldn't take kids under 7. It's kinda scary in places, and when the Carnosaurs eat the friendly dinosaurs -- or when the family of monkees gets killed -- the kids will ball their eyes out. They don't need to see whole families wiped out and eaten at that age. Call me conservative or something, but I just don't see how that helps kids.
The story is basically the same as THE LAND BEFORE TIME --dinosaurs looking for a safe haven. Here we have the a meteor shower which supposedly is going to lead to their extinction -- but the meteors fall like rain. It's nasty and all that... but hardly good science. Plus, the dinos act just like people, and that is sort of a put off -- especially because of the way the film begins -- very nature based and keen on painting a realistic visual.
The graphics are at times incredible and at other times blurry and indistinct. This animation was supposed to be the best ever -- I thought some of the shots were just that, and then most of it was bland and dark. I've noticed that most of these computer animation shots are dark -- perhaps because if they were lit up enough the eye'd be able to spot all their flaws. I dunno. But it was annoying and the effect was like watching a drive-in movie at dusk, before it's completely dark -- the color and detail is sort of washed away. I think that explains it well enough.
But the story did have a good message, and it was clear and strait-forward enough. And at least it was a family movie that adults could sit through without getting stomach cramps and wanting to vomit in the aisle -- I think I'll pass on the new Pokemon movie coming out this summer, I don't care how much my nephew begs!
