The latest trailer for Disney/Pixar’s upcoming film The Good Dinosaur gives a more extensive look into the prehistoric world of Arlo the Apatosaurus. Not only do we get more detailed looks at the lush and nearly photo-realistic landscapes that form this world, we also learn more about Arlo’s relationships with the creatures around him. Of course, there’s the friendship between Arlo and a primitive human boy that forms the emotional core of the story, but then there’s the unexpected team-up of the herbivore with a trio of meat-eating T-rexes; I’m curious to see how that all plays out.
The premise of Peter Sohn’s The Good Dinosaur – one that sees the extinction-causing asteroid pass by Earth rather than slam into it – is an interesting one that lets the filmmakers play in an alternate reality where pretty much anything can happen. Add to that Pixar’s legacy of emotionally resonant films and the fact that a pivotal part of The Good Dinosaur’s plot reminds me of An American Tail, and it’s sure to be a fun family film this holiday season.
The Good Dinosaur opens in 3D on November 25th, and features the voices of Raymond Ochoa, Jeffrey Wright, Steve Zahn,A.J. Buckley, Anna Paquin, Sam Elliott, Frances McDormand, Marcus Scribner, and Jack Bright. Watch the new trailer for Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur below:
