Latest Good Dinosaur Trailer Hints at Deeper Story

The Good Dinosaur - November 25, 2015

The latest trailer for “The Good Dinosaur” establishes a human connection.

There’s a meme making the rounds of the internet about the creative process of Pixar films, “what if [blank] had feelings?” with the recent “Inside Out” being “what if feelings had feelings?” It’s a good joke because it really does feel that way sometimes. Now it looks like we’re getting “what if dinosaurs had feelings?” with their newest film “The Good Dinosaur”.

From the first teasers we know this new film is about an alternate earth where the meteor that killed all the dinosaurs missed our planet and thus all the dinosaurs survived. That’s about all the teasers showed us. They just explain the concept and then give some really quick shots of the dinosaurs running around. This new trailer gives us a better idea of the plot with the dinosaur and a human boy surviving together. I have to admit from the teaser I interpreted it to mean it was some story showing us what the world would be like if dinosaurs evolved to live alongside us but it doesn’t look like that’s what we’re getting. I have no complaints as from this trailer, this looks like another winner from Pixar. There is no dialog during the whole trailer (like the first half of “Wall-E”) however that could be entirely different in the actual movie. Remember the trailer to Disney’s “Dinosaur?” Still, the major vibe “The Good Dinosaur” trailer seems to be giving off is selling us on the emotion of the characters and the simple beauty in these quiet moments with some fun action. All of this is set to the new song “Crystals” by Of Monsters And Men.

As a new film directed by Peter Sohn, this will be his first feature length film. He had previously done the excellent Pixar short “Partly Cloudy.”

“The Good Dinosaur” is due to be released November 25th of this year. Thank you Pixar for the gift of two films in one year. You all are so considerate.

Eric grew up with a simple childhood. At age 11 a six fingered man murdered his father in front of his eyes, while his mother died defending him from an attack from a sharptooth, then an evil toon dropped a piano from 15 stories onto his brother's head and then on top of all of that while on the job he was brutally shot up and left for dead but was rebuilt as a robotic cop to get his revenge. ...Oooorr maybe he just watched a lot of movies growing up and got really into them. From a young age Eric realized learning things like science, math, people's names etc. took some real effort but could easily remember practically all the dialog/plot details from a random movie he watched on tv years ago. He knew from a young age that he wanted to make movies and never strayed from that. Going to college to get an education in film production and working on movie sets whenever it can be fit into his schedule. Get him into a room full of people he doesn't know and over time you may eventually get him to open up but just mention some movies and he'll talk for hours, never afraid to (respectfully) argue with fellow movie nerds. Now he puts that love and energy toward writing for
