    Set 65 million years ago, "Dinosaur" follows the adventures of an Iguanodon named Aladar, separated from his own species and raised on an island paradise by a clan of lemurs. When a devastating meteor shower plunges their world into chaos, Aladar and several members of his lemur family escape to the mainland and join a group of migrating dinosaurs desperately searching for safe nesting grounds. A milestone in cinema history, "Dinosaur" features an incredible cast of computer-animated dinosaurs set in a jaw-dropping photorealistic world. A wondrous animated masterpiece in the grand Disney tradition, created directly from the digital source.

Movie Reviews
  • DCN Review

  • Defects & Bugs
    Description: Movie skips or pauses during playback. This can occur at anytime, but often during the layer change. It may also be difficult to access certain menu features.
    Resolution: This is an authoring problem with the disc causing conflict with hardware that does not 100% conform to the DVD specs in that enhanced features will sometimes fail. Not all DVD hardware/software combinations will manifest this problem. Buena Vista will be offering replacements for this DVD in the near future. Our recommendation is to return the disc to the place of purchase or call Buena Vista Home Entertainment at 1-800-723-4763 where they are prepared to assist you.

    Robert Chapek, President of Buena Vista Home Entertainment, has offered this statement: "Buena Vista Home Entertainment is aware of and very concerned about the DVD hardware/software incompatibility issues that the home entertainment industry currently is experiencing. Like other studios, we have been working diligently to minimize such problems and will continue aggressively to eliminate these problems in the future. We believe any solution ultimately will require a partnership between hardware and software manufacturers. In the meantime, we will ensure that all of our consumers are 100% satisfied with any product that is affected by these issues. The Walt Disney Company is committed to its customers and fans to deliver a quality of excellence across all formats that is synonymous with its name."

    These authoring problems affected the following DVDs: Dinosaur (standard and special editions), Disney's The Kid, and Scary Movie.
    Status: moderate
