The Land Before Time (1988)

Land Before Time, The (1988, USA) C-70m. ** D: Don Bluth. Starring the voices of Gabriel Damon, Candace Hutson, Judith Barsi, Will Ryan, Pat Hingle, Helen Shaver. Quite ambitious animated fantasy (from a former Disney animator), about a little dinosaur's quest to find a hidden valley which his dying mother(!) was planning to reach with him. After a bumpy, uneven start, this becomes quite cute. Good score by James Horner. Co-executive produced by none other than George Lucas and Steven Spielberg. Followed by nine(!) video sequels until 2003.
