Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that The Land Before Time: Journey of the Brave is another entry in the Land Before Time series, which followed the release of the initial film in 1988. In this tale, a band of young dinosaurs join with Little Foot, the kind and brave hero, to rescue his dad from the aftermath of a volcano eruption. On their journey, the little ones must wend their way through a series of adventures, which provide cartoon danger and suspense (a sandstorm, a rock slide, chases by scary predators, and falls from on high). Though there are no injuries or deaths, it's still best-suited for kids who understand the difference between pretend and real violence. Reba McIntyre and Damon Wayons, Jr. provide the voices for guest characters, with McIntyre singing one of the four original songs that accompany the easy-to-understand story.
Cartoon danger includes: an erupting volcano with fire and lava; roaring "feather-headed, sharp-teeth" dinos who chase the heroes, threatening to eat them; rocks falling and trapping two creatures in a cave; a sandstorm; a fall from a ledge into water; and going over a waterfall. A father dino is trapped in a fiery river with his leg stuck. No one is hurt or killed.
Places great value on teamwork, resourcefulness, optimism. Kids are advised to listen to grown-ups and that friendship is important.
This DVD is the 14th in the Land Before Time series.
