| Spoiler warning: The following contains plot details about|
the entire movie.
In search of more adventure, the kids find a hideaway to hang out in and spot two "egg-eaters" making off with an egg. The kids chase the thieves and accidentally wind up making a big hole in part of the wall surrounding the Great Valley, now allowing carnivorous dinosaurs to get in. Regardless, they seemingly recover the egg. The egg they were after just rolls back home during the ordeal, and they actually wind up bringing back an egg containing an infant Tyrannosaurus rex through a somewhat playful twist of fate. Naturally, the two thieves want their egg back, and the parents of the infant sharptooth want their baby back. Chaos soon breaks out throughout the entire Great Valley. Meanwhile, the children have grown attached to their new friend, the baby sharptooth, whom they appropriately name Chomper. But in the end, the only solution to regain their peaceful way of life in the valley is to give the parents back their baby and close the way in once they leave.

- In every sequel of the original film, The Land Before Time, there has always been a guest character featured. Up to date, Chomper and Mo are the only two guest characters of the series to make reappearances. Chomper, however, makes main reappearances in The Mysterious Island and in the up-and-coming television series compared to Mo receiving only a cameo in The Great Longneck Migration like Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas.
- This was the film that introduced the musical element into the series and it has consistently remained ever since.
- With the sole exception of Candace Hudson, the voice of Cera, none the original cast and crew members returned to contribute their voices to this direct-to-video sequel.
- If you select "Play" in The Great Valley Adventure, it will lead you the trailer of Journey to Big Water trailer from Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron.
This was a major success in sales, and is generally well received among fans of the series. This is shown through the multiple sequels it has since then given rise to.
