Dinosaur Island is a 2002 animated film from DiC Entertainment directed by Will Meugniot.

Plot

Four teenagers are chosen to participate in a Survivor-style television show. They are:

  • Alex Chang (voiced by Philip Chen)
  • Leo Bryant (voiced by Ronelle Tipler)
  • Jackie Rodriguez (voiced by Anadella Lamas)
  • Margaret Tim (voiced by Hilary Williams)

On the way to their filming location, their plane is brought down by an electrical storm. As the plane falls, they parachute out onto what appears to be an island, landing on an isolated mesa. The island, however, is inhabited by a variety of dinosaurs. The island is also inhabited by a form of unfriendly prehistoric human, Homo habilis. The four have to escape from both the dinosaurs and a tribe of Homo habilis.

Dinosaurs

  • Iguanodon
  • Ornithomimus
  • Pteranodon
  • Stegosaurus
  • Triceratops
  • Tyrannosaurus Rex
  • Velociraptor

Release

Dinosaur Island was released a direct to home video movie. As the movie was produced as a take-off on the Survivor TV format, the small screen was considered the best overall method of release. Due to its success in Italy, L'isola del Dinosauri was additionally released in a special 3-Pack that included Pam Carter's Time Kid and Scott Heming's The Archies in Jugman.
