About the Movie

A dinosaur egg is stolen from its nest and passed along by various birds, animals and other predators each hoping to eat it. Fumbled into a community of kind and nurturing lemurs, it cracks open and Aladar, a baby dinosaur emerges. He lives happily and peacefully among the lemurs, who raise him into adolescence. However, when a natural disaster occurs, wiping out the beautiful rainforest that was their home, teenage Aladar joins a dinosaur pilgrimage--and discovers his true ancestry--in order to bring his lemur family to safety.

Fresh: Dinosaur astonishes and disheartens as only the most elaborate, most ambitious Hollywood products can. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: If the devil is in the details, then this is one devilishly delightful film. – Paul Clinton (,, Jun 24, 2010
