Newest GOOD DINOSAUR Trailer Presents Kindness and Adventure [64 Screenshots]

Following the success of last month’s Inside Out, Pixar is back for all the feels with The Good Dinosaur, the studio’s second animated feature of 2015. Showcasing the studio’s gorgeous signature animation, in a film that is guaranteed to tug at the heartstrings of children and adults alike, this latest trailer for The Good Dinosaur opens with its teaser and then expands on its question: what would happen if the asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs missed Earth?

Pixar brings us the answer through the friendship off adorably clumsy Arlo (Raymond Ochoa), the green Apatosaurus and his equally sweet human friend Spot (Jack Bright). The two and a half minute spot largely consists of beautiful pre-historic visuals layered over “Crystals” by Monsters & Men, so we aren’t given a whole lot of characterization or clues through the one word of dialogue given.

After facing production issues and being pushed back from its original 2013 release date, The Good Dinosaur is finally getting its debut. Pixar replaced its original director Bob Peterson with Peter Sohn (Partly Cloudy) due to problems with the movie’s third act. The Good Dinosaur trailer still presents a fairly vague story, which could mean the marketing team actually doesn’t want to give away spoilers, they actually want to slowly build the story through these trailers, or they’re trying to hide the fact that The Good Dinosaur still has its problems.

Due to the open-ended nature of The Good Dinosaur trailer, we’re left with a lot of questions. Where is Arlo traveling to? How does a human and dinosaur become friends? What dangers will these two unlikely friends face? There’s still plenty of time between now and Thanksgiving for Pixar to unfold more of this story, and I look forward to it.

While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of.

Pixar’s ‘The Good Dinosaur’ Teaser Trailer Asks “What If?” [25 Screenshots]

If you felt a little empty inside last year, that’s because Pixar did not have an animated release. It was a first for the animation studio – between The Incredibles and Cars – since 2005. Inside Out opens in theaters on June 19, but to make up for what was suppose to release last year, Pixar has another film opening this Thanksgiving. The first teaser for The Good Dinosaur appeared today asking audiences “what if?”

For how long they’ve had to work on The Good Dinosaur, Pixar doesn’t really provide us with much of anything in terms of what it’s about. The “what if” scenario is fun to think about for a second, but there is really nothing here to judge whether or not they’ll execute a good story based on that premise. I get some of that classic Pixar humor peeking its head out with the asteroid flying over the Earth, and the character designs are fine.

Last year, John Lithgow stated they completely reimagined the story, so I’m looking forward to what the studio can bring with a full-length trailer. The director, Peter Sohn made his big debut with the Pixar short “Partly Cloudy.” He has since been a part of Pixar within their art, story, and animation departments. He has also voiced the characters of Emile from Ratatouille and Scott “Squishy” Squibbles from Monsters University.
