Overview

In this third installment of the animated saga of a young brontosaurus and his pals, trouble has come to the Great Valley in the form of a meteorite. It fell just beyond the valley and now blocks the main water supply. As the land dries and thirst increases, the different species of dinosaurs who once coexisted peacefully become fractious. Suddenly Littlefoot and his friends are no longer allowed to play together. As bigotry and bickering increase, Littlefoot's gang decides that it's up to them to save the day. Since they went outside the valley in the last sequel, they know where water can be found, and though the Great Beyond is populated by tyrannosauruses and other carnivores, the youngsters know that they and their parents must take that risk in order to survive.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
The third time's the charm for this enduring produced-for-video franchise that continues the coming-of-age adventures of "longneck" Littlefoot and his friends and family in the idyllic Great Valley. Making its DVD debut, this second sequel to the 1988 kids' hit conveys an easy-to-grasp lesson in sharing and cooperation. In the wake of an "earthshake," the water supply to the Great Valley is blocked, threatening the region's vegetation. While the elder dinosaurs bicker among themselves, Littlefoot and his friends venture again into the mysterious beyond to find the source of the problem. The intrepid young dinos set a good example not only for the elders but also for the resident bullies who learn "the special kind of joy which comes from giving to others." The less ambitious animation isn't as lush as the original film or the most recent entries that have incorporated computer animation, but the popular characters make this Time well spent.
