From Back Cover:
This dazzling Anniversary Edition of The Land Before Time, presented by Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, introduces us to Littlefoot, Cera, Spike, Ducky and Petrie, and follows them on their first journey together - an exciting quest fo find the lush, legendary Great Valley. Along the way, the prehistoric pals overcome many challenges and learn the value of teamwork and friendship. This delightful classic is the adventure that started it all, and it continues to capture the hearts of viewers young and old.
This is the original and best of the Land Before Time series (there have been roughly a dozen sequels in the last 20 years, most of them sing-a-long). While the two main characters of the story (Littlefoot and Cera) are annoying at best, the supporting characters (Spike, Petrie, and Ducky) are adorable and really make the film.
Rated G (MPAA)
