Is the compelling story of Aladar, an iguanadon who is separated from his own kind and raised by a clan of lemurs, including the wisecracking Zini and the compassionate Plio. When a meteor shower destroys their home, Aladar and his family follow a herd of dinosaurs heading for the safety of the "nesting grounds." along the way, Aladar befriends Baylene, an elderly brachiosaur; Eema, an unstoppable strachosaru; and Neera, a feisty fellow iguanadon. Together, they must stand strong amidst food and water shortages, the threat of carnotaur attacks, and Aladar's run-ins with the herd's stubborn leader, Kron.
Cast and Characters
- D. B. Sweeney as Aladar, a brave and compassionate Iguanodon who has been adopted into a family of liemurs and does what he can to make sure that the old and weak aren't left behind during the herd's migration.
- Ossie Davis as Yar, a lemur patriarch whose occasional gruff demeanor is just a front covering his more compassionate interior. He is the father of Plio and Zini and the grandfather of Suri.
- Alfre Woodard as Plio, a lemur matriarch who cares for her family.
- Max Casella as Zini, Aladar's best friend, lemur stepbrother, and wisecracking sidekick. Suri's uncle and Plio's younger brother.
- Hayden Panettiere as Suri, Aladar's stepsister, Zini's niece, Plio's daughter and Yar's granddaughter.
- Samuel E. Wright as Kron, an Iguanodon leading a herd of dinosaur survivors who is characterized by a strict adherence to social Darwinism. He believes in survival of the fittest, which repeatedly clashes with Aladar's compassionate manner.
- Peter Siragusa as Bruton, Kron's domineering second-in-command. He is betrayed and left for the dead by Kron, and ultimately gives his life to kill one of the Carnotaurus to save Aladar, the lemurs, and the weaker dinosaurs.
- Julianna Margulies as Neera, Kron's sister, who ends up falling in love with Aladar because of his compassionate ways.
- Joan Plowright as Baylene, an elderly and dainty Brachiosaurus, who is the last of her species as she hasn't seen another Brachiosaurus in the herd's journeys.
- Della Reese as Eema, a wizened, elderly and slow-moving Styracosaurus, and has a pet Ankylosaurus named Url.
