Discover a world you've only imagined


  • I hope it's not contagious.


  • [about to cross the desert] If you smell something sizzling, it could be me.


  • [narrating] Some things start out big, and some things start out small, very small. But sometimes the smallest thing can make the biggest changes of all.


  • This monster's got no teeth! What's he gonna do? Gum us to death?
  • What you need is a little help from the love monkey.
  • Hey, enough with the beauty sleep! You're ravishing already!


Kron: Stay out of my way!
Bruton: You heard Kron! MOVE IT!
[Aladar sees a surviving dinosaur herd walking past him, then he sees baby iguanodons walking under him, then Neera bumps into him]
Neera: Watch it!
[As Aladar looks at Neera, he sees a Pachyrhinosaurus walks into him with its nasal boss, knocking him to the ground, then a pack of Microceratops jump over him and the lemurs]
Yar: Zini, get your head down!
[He sees Baylene as she walks under him as he and the lemurs look up]
Eema: Walkin' backwards, huh?! Well, let me know if that gets you there any faster! Keep those little legs moving, Url, or you'll get left behind!

Baylene: [sniffs the lemurs and sneezes] What an unfortunate blemish.
Eema: Good mud bath would clear those right up.
Yar: Excuse me?
[Eema growls in surprise]
Aladar: Um, he's my grandfather. [chuckles] Couple of times removed.
Zini: Try a couple of species removed.

Plio: I heard you say something about "Nesting Grounds".
Eema: It is the most beautiful place there is, child. It's where the herd goes to have their babies.
Suri: Will we find anybody that looks... like us there?
Eema: Oh, the last few days, I've seen 'em all shapes and sizes. Who knows what we'll find? The hard job now is just getting there.
Baylene: And we're being driven unmercifully.
Aladar: By who?
Eema: Kron, the herd's head honcho.
Baylene: We can hardly keep up. An older woman like myself, it's... well, it's positively indecent.
Aladar: Tell him! What's the worst he can do?
[Neera, Kron, and Bruton approach; Url nervously walks out of the way; Bruton growls at him; Kron rudely pushes past Aladar]
Aladar: Hey! What's his problem?
Eema: That's him, honey, Kron.
Aladar: Huh. Excuse me! Kron! Got a second?
Bruton: Get lost, kid!
Kron: [chuckles] Relax, Bruton. [comes up to Aladar] Who are you?
Aladar: Uh... Aladar.
Kron: Why aren't you up here with the... [notices the lemurs on Aladar's back] ...uh, young bloods? [snorts at them]
Aladar: Well, I was back here talking to these guys. I guess they're having a hard time keeping up. So, you know, maybe you could slow down a bit?
[Neera chuckles and smiles]
Kron: Hmm, let the weak set the pace. Now, there's an idea. Better let me do the thinking from now on, Aladar.
Aladar: Hey! They need help back here!
Kron: Watch yourself, boy. [leaves with a dismissive snort]
Neera: Don't worry. That's how my brother treats newcomers... no matter how charming they are. [follows Kron away]
Zini: [to Aladar] You sure know how to catch a girl's eye there, stud!
Eema: I wouldn't be catching nobody's eye if I was you. Especially Neera's. You just keep your head down, and you mind what Kron tells you.
Yar: Since when do we take orders from the likes of him?
Eema: [chuckles] Kron has swatted flies bigger than you, pops.
Yar: I could hold that monster's brain in the palm of my-!
Alader: No, Yar, she's right. Better to keep our heads down with this bunch than get 'em bitten off by those things. [looks towards Velociraptors nearby]
Eema: Well, you just consider yourself lucky that's all that's following us.

Baylene: Oh, joy. Blisters!
Eema: I got blisters ON my blisters.
Yar: You don't wanna know where I got blisters... [hearing a bellow up ahead]
Eema: What was that?
Baylene: It came from up ahead.
Zini: OK, what's the worst thing it could be?
Suri: [fearfully] A Carnotaur.
Zini: [increasingly nervous] OK, what's the second worst thing it could be?
Baylene: TWO Carnotaurs! [shudders]
Eema: That's it! I'm gone!
Aladar: Everybody! We don't know for sure! It could be the herd. Let's check it out.
[they turn the corner to find Bruton exhausted from his recent injuries]
Eema: Oh, it's Bruton!
Baylene: It appears we weren't the only ones left behind.

Plio: We can't just leave him here!
Eema: We can, if we move fast enough!
Bruton: Save your pity. I just need some time to rest. Now, get away from me!
[they enter a cave]
Aladar: It's dark, but at least it's dry.
Eema: I like dry. It's the dark part I'm having trouble with. [accidentally steps on Url's spikes] OWW! Sorry, Url.

Yar': If I could sleep that deep, I'd be in paradise.
Eema: If you could sleep that deep, honey, you'd be dead.

[the footsteps of the Carnotaurs awaken Aladar; he looks out and gazes in surprise at them as Bruton quietly comes up to him]
Bruton: [whispering] Shh. Carnotaurs. [they look out at the two predators surveying the area]
Aladar: [whispering] What do we do?
Bruton: Wake the others. [turns to go and tell the others to wake up and get moving; the Carnotaurs move closer to the cave. Bruton, Eema, Baylene, and the lemurs begin to proceed deeper into the cave. Aladar nudges Url to wake him up; he bellows in fright, and Aladar immediately silences him so he doesn't give them away; the Carnotaurs look up briefly and then continue looking around]
Baylene: Oh! [her neck touches the ceiling, causing a rock to fall and hit Eema; Aladar attempts to catch it, without success; one of the Carnotaurs examines the rock and sticks its snout through the water and sniffs Aladar before a thunderclap illuminates him; the Carnotaur charges at him]
Aladar: Go! Go! Hurry! Move it, Eema!
Plio: [after the Carnotaur grabs Aladar by the tail and drags him back] Aladar! Aladar! [from a distance, Bruton hears the lemurs' screams and ponders what to do next: save himself or protect the others; the Carnotaurs begin to fight over which one of them gets to devour Aladar]
Bruton: [after stopping the Carnotaurs from attacking Aladar] I'll hold them off. You help the others!
Plio: [to Aladar] You did what you could.

[the group reaches the Nesting Grounds, featuring a large lake]
Plio: Our new home...

[closing narration]
Plio: No one knows what changes, big or small, lie ahead. One thing is certain; our journey's not over. We can only hope that, in some small way, our time here will be remembered.

Yar: Hey, old girl, you're wandering off a bit.
Eema: [panting] That's all I need: a monkey on my back.

Kron: [to the herd] We have to keep trying. For our survival, our future is over these rocks. NOW, LET'S GO HOME!
[the herd starts going over the rocks]
Kron: [to the two iguanodon children] You're going to make it, won't you, boys? [starts shoving them with his head]
Neera: [to Kron] No.
Kron: Watch them! They're tough! [to the herd] If they can do it, SO CAN YOU!
[the herd hesitates, then continue toward the rocks]
Aladar: KRON!
[They look back as Aladar approaches the herd]
Aladar: Get the herd out of here! A Carnotaur's coming!
Kron: [to the herd] Keep moving!
Aladar: Stop! I've been to the valley! There's a safer way!
Kron: [angrily, to the two iguanodon children] Go on! Show them!
Neera: Kron, listen to him!
[Kron hits the two iguanodon children with his head, making them cry]
Aladar: Look, we've got to go now!
Kron: Go where?! Straight to the Carnotaurs?!
Aladar: If we hurry, we can get around them! You can't get over those rocks! There's a sheer trap on the other side! [Kron hits the two iguanodon children with his head, making them cry again] YOU'RE GONNA KILL THE HERD! I know a way to the valley, and everybody can make it! [to the herd] Now, follow me!
[Kron approaches the herd]
Neera: Kron!
Aladar: [to the herd] All right, let's go!
[Kron attacks Aladar, who fights back. Kron nearly kills Aladar, but Neera knocks Kron to the ground, and they continue towards the valley along with the herd]
Kron: NEERA!
[Kron starts climbing over the rocks all by himself, but the carnotaur approaches the herd]
Kron: [to the herd] He's led that monster straight toward us! This way! [continues climbing over the rocks]
Aladar: No! Don't move! If we scatter, he'll pick us off! [to the herd] Stand together!
[The carnotaur roars at Aladar, who roars back. Neera joins Aladar, along with the herd, forcing the carnotaur to ignore the herd and head towards Kron; Aladar and Neera give chase]
Neera: Kron!
[Kron realizes that he is cornered]
Kron: [last words] No, no!
[Kron attacks the carnotaur, who wounds him. Aladar, and Neera start fighting with the carnotaur, and Aladar knocks it to its death below. Aladar and Neera rush toward Kron]
Neera: Kron.
[Neera nudges Kron's head, but he is already dead. Aladar and Neera embrace each other. Later, Aladar, Neera, and the herd head through the cave entrance and finally make it into the valley]
Aladar: [to Neera] Welcome home.
