- 1 hr 13 min
"The Land Before Time II: The Great Valley Adventure" is an animated movie following the adventures of five young dinosaurs. It is the second film in the Land Before Time franchise. To appeal to a younger audience, the producers decided to keep the tone light and slow down the story line. This is different from the first movie and set a standard for other films in the franchise. We revisit Littlefoot and his friends--Cera, Ducky, Petri, and Spike--shortly after they arrive in the Great Valley at the end of the first movie. They happily explore their new home with the lush greenery. However, like most children, they long to exert their independence. Cera, the headstrong triceratops, comes up with the idea for the group to run away to a forbidden area of the Valley called the Mysterious Beyond. Along the way, the gang has a run-in with a couple of "eggsnatcher" dinosaurs. After escaping, Littlefoot and his friends discover an abandoned egg. Assuming the egg was stolen from the Great Valley by the eggsnatchers, they decide to bring the egg back home. Realizing the egg looks nothing like the eggs in the Great Valley, they choose to hatch the egg anyway. It turns out to be a baby T-rex. All the dinosaurs but Littlefoot run away in fear. Littlefoot understands the baby isn't yet dangerous and feels he can raise the T-res on his own to show his family how grown-up he really is. Littlefoot names him Chomper. At first, his plan to raise Chomper as a gentle leaf-eater seems to work. However, instinct soon reveals how different Chomper is from the other dinosaurs living in the Great Valley. It becomes clear that Chomper needs to be with other dinosaurs of his own kind--his family.
