Dinosaur, 2000 - ★★

The forgotten Disney film was always an odd addition to the official Disney list (and potential Pointless answer) so I was curious to check it out before it disappears from Netflix next week. There's very little to suggest it is a Disney film although there may be moments tipping their hat to other classics; it's hard not to think of Bambi during the opening and the trio of villains reminded me of the hyenas in The Lion King.

The animation is fine and surprisingly hasn't dated (although it looks a bit sparse in places) but there's next to no story, the characterisations insipid and the anthropomorphism makes you wish they'd stuck to the original plan of keeping it dialogue free.
