Nobita finds a fossilized dinosaur egg by accident, and with the help of Doraemon's tools, they hatched the egg and began raising the dinosaur. Knowing that they can't keep the dinosaur forever, Nobita was forced to send it back to prehistoric times where a group of hunters from the future threatens to endanger the dinosaurs. Determined to save the dinosaurs from the claws of the hunters, Doraemon and the gang returns to the past and sets out in a prehistoric adventure.

STORY - (6)
Doraemon: Nobita's Dinosaur unsurprisingly follows the three act structure to a tee. The first act introduces Piisuke, Nobita's pet dinosaur and shows their time growing up together before taking him back to his time; the second act ...
