* ScienceMarchesOn: Oviraptors were assumed to be nest raiders when they were first discovered, and named appropriately. Then it turned out, thanks to new technology, that the eggs they are usually found with contain baby ''Oviraptor''. This is more a case of TheyJustDidntCare, since this discovery was made several years ''before'' the movie. However, this discovery does not completely rule out the inclusion of eggs in an ''Oviraptor'''s diet. Recent research has however, revealed ''Oviraptor'' nests, containing embryonic bones from other species, as well as its own, suggesting that it may have eaten eggs after all...

** A ''Mosasaurus'' was going to appear, and a finished model of it can be found on the Collector's Edition DVD, suggesting it was cut rather late in development.

* ''Dinosaur'' has the honor of being the very first film from Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo to be released on UsefulNotes/BluRay format in 2006. The film's animation was presumably the reason it was put on the then-new High Definition format first. This Blu-ray at least retained the original 2001 Walt Disney Home Entertainment logo, but the Blu-rays replaced it the next year with the "There is only one Disney" opening. This Blu-ray also has the industry-wide Blu-ray logo on it; the Disney Blu-ray logo was created in 2008.

* CreatorKiller: Not to Disney itself, but despite being a box office success, The Secret Lab (the special effects company that Disney made to produce this film) was shut down, with the only other project they made being ''Wild Life'' (specifically, they were animating it). This was [[http://disney.wikia.com/wiki/Wild_Life cancelled]]. More on The Secret Lab's history can be found on a Jim Hill [[http://jimhillmedia.com/columnists1/b/floyd_norman/archive/2006/02/21/1435.aspx article]].

** The scenes involving Bruton and a scout being ambushed, Aladar and Neera's talk, and the misfits being left behind originally took place at night.

** An early draft had Aladar named Noah, and traveled with Zini and his two grandparents. The world was much more lush, and finding food and water did not seem to be a big problem as it is in the final film. Some scenes included Kron leading the herd across a river swarming with predators, and Aladar's grandparents letting themselves be killed by the Carnotaur when they grow too weary to keep up with the herd.

** The original "star" species of the movie was originally ''Styracosaurus'' before being changed to a''Iguanodon''.
** An early draft had Aladar named Noah, and traveled with Zini Adam (later Zini) and his two grandparents.grandparents. Kron was named Cain, and the film had a more religious take on things. Noah would have visions of the future that would make him an outcast, and Kron sought to rule ''all'' herds of dinosaurs.

** Neera would've tried to save the orphans from raptors, only for her to need Kron to begrudgingly save her. This was removed so there could be more of a breather after the intense cave attack.



** The ''Brachiosaurus'' character was originally a young male named Sorbus, voiced by Chris Farley, who would've been afraid of heights despite his gigantic nature. However, when Farley suddenly died in 1997, the character was rewritten as Baylene.

** Which is nothing compared to some of the other rumored plans for this film. Imagine a ''PaulVerhoeven Disney movie''.

*PlayingAgainstType: Whoever knew Samuel E. Wright, the voice of the [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Softshell-hearted crab]] [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Sebastian]] could play a rude total jerk-ass demanding iguanadon, with almost nothing redeeming about him?

** Concept art suggests Url would've been much larger, about the size of Eema even! And there would've been more sauropods in the herd.
