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!
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

|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....
