  • Supposedly, the name of Big Valley was originally going to be "Great Valley", but the name was already taken; the 1988 film The Land Before Time had the Great Valley named as the most prominent location in the aforementioned original film and its subsequent thirteen direct-to-video sequels, the latest of which released in 2016, during Red Dead Redemption 2's development.
