I wonder if a remake would include all the deleted scenes, since 10-15 minutes of scenes were cut from the first movie. I wonder if all of it was found.
Pretty sure it hasn’t been found. I really hope something will turn up though.
Me too

Crucify me for saying this, but after doing a lot more thinking, I'd actually be open to a remake, no matter how terrible it may be. Why, you ask? Well, a remake could help introduce kids to the original movie, which in turn would expose them to its awesomeness and artistic value.

I know, it sounds totally outlandish, but I base my reasoning off the fact that I've been researching and learning a lot of new things about my childhood favorites ever since I entered college. Someone from the newest generation is bound to research the origins of the hypothetical remake out of curiosity and share it with others.

Oh, I think it could be done if in the right hands(if the 2016 remake of Disney's Jungle Book proved anything.)

I just think it ending up in the right hands is a bit unlikely. To be honest and I know I will get flak for this, I think a full continuity reboot would be better if it comes to redoing it from the ground up. Mainly because I think a more direct remake would, even if it were good, remain the shadow of the original film.

That's true too. If LBT is ever going to come back to theaters, it needs to be completely original, even if it's retelling the same story. It'd be pretty dull, or perhaps worse, if it just straight-up remakes the story with, God forbid, mainstream stuff implemented.

God knows I don't need rapping dinosaurs.

I would have to disagree. Having Littlefoot's mother survive would greatly impact what kind of person Littlefoot would ultimately become. I think this was discussed before. A lot of things would change, and one worth noting is the fact that, had his mother survive and Littlefoot stayed with her, then that means he'd never become friends with Cera and he'd never meet Ducky or Petrie. The consequences of this would be that Cera, Ducky, and Petrie might have remained permanently lost and Spike wouldn't have been found, perhaps even becoming stillborn (as it was Ducky's help that got him to hatch in the first place).

Also another effect is that Littlefoot might never have learned to set aside any prejudiced feelings early; remember, even though his mother saved Cera as well, she was been shown to have some prejudices herself. She is not aggressive about them, but she did actively encourage Littlefoot to look forward to the many "longneck" friends he was going to meet and play with in the valley, and she told him that all dinosaur kinds just stick together with their own. If Littlefoot remained with her, he would have carried this prejudice with him and likely would have been a little similar to Ali as she initially was in the 4th movie. Maybe not terrified, but he would be wary and uncomfortable with other species.

Pretty much, the whole dynamic of the series would change and it would be way different from the LBT we know.

The death of his mother shaped Littlefoot into what and who he is today. The death scene is like... THE key scene of the whole first movie  (maybe aside from killing Sharptooth and finding the valley) so removing it would not be a smart move
Note to self: finally create that signature lazy bum! :P

At this point, with all these remakes and reboots that are the newest Hollywood rage, I'm willing to bet $100 that they'll eventually dig up LBT and decide to remake/reboot it. I mean, there will come a time when the studios have dug their way to the bottom of the barrel.
