Dinosaur Island is a 2002 animated film from DiC Entertainment directed by Will Meugniot. Considered a family oriented picture, it is a unique adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyles 1912 novel The Lost World by animated movie veteran John Loy. The movie stands apart as the only attempt to adapt The Lost World in an animated format, combined with the popular reality-series format.

Teenagers Leo, Margaret, Jackie and Alex have been chosen to compete on a "Survivor"-style reality show called "Wild World." But on their journey to the Amazon jungle, their plane crashes on a remote island straight out of prehistory. What started as a competition soon becomes a lesson in teamwork as the foursome encounter rampaging dinosaurs and a tribe of early prehumans in this action-packed animated feature.

Plot summary

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

  • 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.

    Like many of John Loys works in the Land Before Time series, Dinosaur Island was 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, Lisola del Dinosauri was additionally released in a special 3-Pack that included Pam Carters Time Kid and Scott Hemings The Archies in Jugman.
