I downloaded the whole thing but I cannot open a .rar file.
You have to unpack the. rar file first, then 68 PNG files will appear which you can watch.

By the way: The quality is really great! Thank you, Sneak! :)

I usually have issues downloading straight from the browser for some reason (downloads 12 MB and then the download kinda freezes), maybe that's why I'm having trouble.

edit: it finally downloaded! Great job Sneak! :D
Now we need to get the other - what, twenty something books? xD

Formally known as Hypnobrai until Nov 11, 2017.

I'm a big LBT fan and have seen all movies and TV series episodes. I'm currently working on a modern analysis of the deleted scenes in The Land Before Time, as new discoveries have been made in the last few years.
I love sharpteeth, especially the Horned Sharptooth, the Plated Sharptooth/Plates and the original Sharptooth.
I'm an admin on The Land Before Time Wiki, particularly the "Sharptooth admin" I suppose you could say.

It was me. You can read it here instead if you couldn't get the .rar file to work:

It seems I'd need to download some kind of app to unpack .rar files and my normal photo viewer has been broken for some time so it could explain my problems in opening Sneak's pictures. So thanks a lot for uploading the shots to the wiki, Hypno! Now I can see them perfectly! :DD

I recommend 7Zip for opening Rar files.

This book appears to be based on the script that Sneak recently uploaded. From me reading both the script and book, they appear to be mostly identical and the book has mostly paintings from the cels in the movie, so technically we have some new visuals and stills, they're just painted instead :)

Yep, it's pretty much the same thing. :DD However, the travel montage scene is still missing and the ending is still far different in the book and the script. I really like the last scene between Littlefoot and his mother and I truly wish it had been preserved. :( On the other hand, I wonder what this "Valley song" thing is? While such an element could sound cool on paper, I fear it could have easily become cheesy or cringy in the film (unless you believe in the heaven ending ;) ) so I'm rather happy that was left out, though.

I've been wondering about Krieger's answer in the light of the script, however. There isn't a scene with Cera crushing any flowers nor any alternative pteranodon scenes in the script. Did he remember wrong or were some of the cut scenes added to the film after this draft script?

Only I know is script is lack of Snake attack storyboards scenes, but already includes Rooter who was said to be included much later... So we can't make conclusion only on script and book, can't even say WHAT animated scenes was cut. There was much more we don't know... It can be explanation why some scenes is missing and vice versa.

The snake attack must have been cut earlier on (like sometime in 1986), and it appears that Rooter was actually added in earlier than we thought (but I myself can certainly believe that he got added in mid-1987, production began in 1985 according to Stu Krieger, and we know the movie was going to come out in late 1987 but a studio relocation delayed it a year later). I think I can make conclusions based on those assumptions.

What snake scene are you talking about? I've gone through cut scenes thread many times and I don't remember such a scene.

Never seen that one before, I guess I should check the wiki more often. ;)

Dude I just found it online it's on eBay. It's 100.00 USD for the book. Witch translates to 5,702.34 Ruble and 34 copex. Hopefully this helps you.

$100.00?!

I guess it's because it's so ancient...

I think it's out of print, so yep, it is a pretty ancient book. Time is going by and the 1980s are getting farther and farther back in time.

It seems that the Sharptooth attack in both the book and the script are shorter than the storyboards. When Cera starts going "the wrong way", Sharptooth exposes them and Littlefoot's mother appears pretty fast. But the 1986 storyboards had a lot more than that. Perhaps they had already trimmed the scene quite a bit before it was animated? It would suck if so, but it's starting to seem like it.
