According to Aria Noelle Curzon, who currently voices Ducky as of The Land Before Time V: The Mysterious Island, The Land Before Time Sequels (II-XIV), much like the first film, also have scenes that aren't included in the final cut. Information about these scenes are extremely rare. The only other evidence of them comes from a still promoting the eleventh film, which features a scene not included in the movie. It is unknown if this animation still exists, or if Universal Studios discarded it immediately upon deciding not to use it.
Deleted scenes for the sequels may be almost non-existent due to their lower budgets. To date, all of these scenes are lost.
Update 01/01/19: FIRST EVER deleted scene confirmed details for a Land Before Time sequel found! Llyn Hunter, storyboard artist for the most recent film, The Land Before Time XIV: Journey of the Brave, revealed that the chase sceneinvolving the Featherhead Sharpteeth was going to be longer. You can read the entire quote in the reference.
Often there are entire sequences that are worked on for many months then totally rejected. For example I did one sequence were Littefoot and Ducky run into an old ribcage to escape from the Allosauruses and it goes bouncing down a hill like a barrel. I and several of the other storyboard artists working on that sequence did numerous versions of it (how many I can't even guess - but quite a number). In the end it was totally cut. There are many like that. In features Storyboard artists are often used to produce the original visual ideas, then once they are introduced into a rough animatic the director and producer decide whether or not they are working in the overall story for the film. The basic through line of - "Littlefoot and company go in search of his father and save his life" - never changes, but the events to get there and the number of them alter dramatically throughout the process.
