The Land Before Time is an American series of animated films centered on dinosaurs. The series began in 1988 with The Land Before Time, directed and produced by Don Bluth and executive produced by George Lucas and Steven Spielberg. It was followed by a total of 12 direct-to-video sequels, though none involves the participation of Bluth, Lucas, or Spielberg.

Synopsis

The films follow a friendship of a group of young dinosaurs, by the names of Littlefoot (Main Protagonist, Apatosaurus), Cera (Triceratops), Petrie (Pteranodon), Ducky (Saurolophus) and Spike (Stegosaurus). After finding The Great Valley, they raise a carnivourous baby, survive a drought and a cold snap and witness a solar eclipse. Throughout all films they embark upon adventures, learning lessons about life and friendship along the way.
