Additional 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

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 strachosaru; 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 DVD, which features a digital-to-digital transfer that ensures the best possible picture and sound quality!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and Exciting November 5, 2000
Format:DVD
I am not sure what critics were expecting when they shot this movie down. It is a fun and exciting adventure for children and adults alike. It may be a little too scary for children under 6, so be warned. Let's get one thing straight, folks. Dinosaur is a movie for CHILDREN. So, don't go in expecting to see the second coming of Jurassic Park. The movie does offer brilliant CGI special effects and breathtaking scenery. I like the story for kids because it stresses teamwork and the value of every individual. The lead character, an Iguanadon named Aladar, is very likeable and I found myself rooting for him time and again. Was the movie expensive? Yes. Is it one of Disney's best ever? No. BUT, it is fun and exciting. There are SO many movies out there for adults. This one is a winner for kids. Don't cheat your kids out of enjoying it because they will.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Visual Buffet of Dinosaurs February 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive animation, weak story March 25, 2001
Format:DVD
I thought a lot about this review.
I'm an animation buff, so I can well say that this film received the maximum rank on animation - the amount of details and thought that was put into every movement and shot is admirable, and the result shows. It is certain that the animators did an excellent job - even went down to details such as having the muscles of the dinosaurs vibrate when the foot hits the floor. Sometimes I actually forgot that this was an animation movie, and mistook it for a National Geographic feature.
The story, on the other hand, is rather disappointing. It seems like the development process stopped after the story became reasonable. The characters are only skin-deep, and it is frustrating for someone who had already seen a couple of movies before that this one brings nothing new to the screen. It's sad to notice so many 'deja vu's while watching, seeing so many thing that you have already seen before, especially that the main character - Aladar - is an orphan dinosaur raised by monkeys, carries a close resemblance to Disney's previous feature, Tarzan.
Two thumbs up for the music - it really hits the spot. The composer captured every moment so naturally that it fits like a glove. Nothing I say can convey the impression, so you might as well see it for yourself.
All in all, an amazing animation feature with a weak plot. This film - in itself - receives 4 stars from me, although if I had calculated my impression on the Collector's edition, I would have definitely lowered it to 3. It simply wasn't worth the extra money I added. The second DVD contains very little material, and I really expected more from a highly documented production such as this one to include more material. People purchase this item to get more information about the animation process, and I really feel like I wanted more. I really think that I should have bought the regular edition and saved some cash.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's a Good Children's Movie January 27, 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Don't let negative reviews put you off. I have four children, and the three who are above the age of two loved this movie. They didn't cry or scream. The graphic are breathtaking. The story isn't really anything terribly original, but then, what Disney story is? They all have basically the same theme and this film is no more violent than The Lion King (probably Disney's best modern effort", the violence is simple done with computer graphics instead of traditional animation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dinosaur ROCKS! July 28, 2000
By A Customer
This movie is excellent. If there's one movie that I've enjoyed this summer besides Gladiator, this is it. The graphics are breathtaking, the characters are cute like most Disney characters, the story is good, and there's more to be said, but it will take to long. The first I heard of this wonderfull movie was when I rented Tarzan. Then I saw it in theatres and loved it. The graphics will blow you away. The desrtruction of lemur island was a huge spectacle. This movie deserves a Special Achievment Award for Best Graphics. I recommend this to families with little kids. I think they'll enjoy the non-extinction story. This is a movie for the whole family to sit and watch. It also offers some good laughs. SEE THIS EXCELLENT ACHIEVEMENT of am movie.

Aren't kids movies supposed to be cliche and preachy?
I completely agree. You have an amazing point. Children need things pounded into their heads for them to remember it as a habit. That's what our education system needs to learn. . . . . What if children were taught differently in school....
