@Ross123 Why are the Dinosaurs in these films not being called by their actual names like Titanosaurs, Triceratops', and such? That's what I've been wondering from seeing them.

@CuriousUserX90 I'm afraid I don't either. Looks like I can't help you with that, sorry.

@Ross123 Guess you were wondering the same thing from seeing the films.

@CuriousUserX90 Why *would* they be called by their genus or species names?

The film series' goal isn't scientific accuracy. It's not for educational purposes. The characters, story or plot don't gain anything from saying "Grandpa Camarasaurus (or insert whatever long-necked sauropod you want here)" over "Grandpa Long-Neck". There's really no need to.

The general audience is quite young, and they probably only know of these dinosaurs by generic descriptors that the movies refer to them as like "Long Neck", "Duckbill", "Three-Horn", etc., so for them it's a lot easier to identify these characters.

Poor Kenneth. It's a shame he's dead. He was perfect as King Triton and Grandpa Longneck. Jim Cummings kept his legacy alive as King Triton, but I wonder who will do Grandpa Longneck if a new Land Before Time movie is made?

@Legacyman *If* they made another LBT movie, my guess is that Grandpa Longneck would appear in a non-speaking role. Grandma would do all of the talking, and Grandpa's scenes would be minimal.

Or they could get Jim Cummings to take over. He matched pretty well for Triton, and I'm sure Jim could do Grandpa as well.

@TylerMirage I'm pretty sure The Land Before Time film series ended due to Universal Animation Studios closure.

@Ross123 Well then, that answers BOTH of our "ifs".

@TylerMirage suppose it does.

@Legacyman I checked, and Cumnmings indeed has done voice over in a Land Before Time film, as one of the 2 Bad Pteranodons or Pterosaurs.
