If you’ve been missing Pixar and their movies over the last few years, you’ve in luck. 2015 has two Pixar movies on the list, two that should make some pretty big splashes. One of those is The Good Dinosaur, which has actually had its fair share of problems. Luckily for us, it got through that and is pushing through to its fall release date. We’ve seen some pieces of concept art and a few images so far, but now we get a first full look at the animated film with its first teaser trailer. SPOILER: it’s good.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Good Dinosaur:
What if the cataclysmic asteroid that forever changed life on Earth actually missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? The film is a humorous and exciting original story about Arlo, a lively 70-foot-tall teenage Apatosaurus with a big heart. After a traumatic event rattles Arlo’s tranquil community, he sets out on a quest to restore peace, gaining an unlikely companion along the way—a young human boy named Spot.
What an awesome idea. This is something I’ve always wanted to see, what would happen if the Dinosaurs never went extinct. The teaser is so perfect, what a fantastic way to show off this movie for the first time. The moment that meteor flew over the planet, I got goosebumps in the best way possible. And yeah, it would be cool to see this kind of idea in live-action form, but this idea was made for Pixar. Obviously, they are able to bring a type of flare and style to films like no other animation studio can, and just from a minute of teasing footage, I’m so damn excited to see it play out in The Good Dinosaur.
Along with the trailer, a first teaser poster has been released as well:
The Good Dinosaur has a November 25th, 2015 release date. Directed by Peter Sohn starring the voices of Neil Patrick Harris, Judy Greer, Bill Hader, Frances McDormand, John Lithgow, and Lucas Neff.
