Movie Info

In this third installment of the animated saga of a young brontosaurus and his pals, trouble has come to the Great Valley in the form of a meteorite. It fell just beyond the valley and now blocks the main water supply. As the land dries and thirst increases, the different species of dinosaurs who once coexisted peacefully become fractious. Suddenly Littlefoot and his friends are no longer allowed to play together. As bigotry and bickering increase, Littlefoot's gang decides that it's up to them to save the day. Since they went outside the valley in the last sequel, they know where water can be found, and though the Great Beyond is populated by tyrannosauruses and other carnivores, the youngsters know that they and their parents must take that risk in order to survive.

Dinosaur sequel offers strong lessons about cooperation.

Milking the dinosaur franchise once again, and still OK fare for kiddies.

There are sufficient action scenes, however, to keep small persons attentive, and enough plot (the valley where the creatures live runs out of water and they argue over rationing while searching for a new source) to hold the action together.

These movies are always good family fun.

... sweet and harmless little story that will delight kids who are into the series, but the underdeveloped and formulaic story line will disappoint adult viewers.

Audience Reviews for The Land Before Time III: The Time of Great Giving

All you need to do is see the title to know you oughta stay away from it, right? Seriously, the first Land Before Time is the only one worth watching.

I think this is where the series took a turn for the worst. They had an entire musical element to this, which really made me lose all faith. The animation was degraded even further and the dialogue is even more corny. I think it should've been left as one movie.
