The Good Dinosaur is set to be one of the top animated films of the year as anything Pixar touches seems to turn to gold instantly. In addition, it is only one of their two films being released to theaters this year.
The film lets viewers imagine what it would be like if the dinosaurs had never gone extinct and it looks as if it will be an incredibly fun and funny film. While Jurassic Park and other films have explored the idea of dinosaurs attacking and making them a scary thing to fear, as the title suggests, this film will feature friendly dinosaurs.
It asks the age-old questions that scientists have pondered for generations about what life could be like if dinosaurs still roamed the Earth and never became extinct.
The Good Dinosaur is a humorous and exciting original story about Arlo, a lively Apatosaurus with a big heart. After a traumatic event disrupts his family, he sets out on a remarkable journey meeting a human boy along the way.
The film’s plot could almost be thought of as the “boy and his dog” type of story like Old Yeller or Air Bud, but in this case, the boy would be a dinosaur and the human would represent the dog.
Pixar has already shown footage from its next feature Inside Out, due for a release this summer, but after the initial trailer for The Good Dinosaur, fans are going to be anxiously awaiting the film’s fall release as well.
Some fans were even getting excited prior to its release:

An excellent cast of comedic actors was brought in for the film that includes Judy Greer, Neil Patrick Harris, Bill Hader, Frances McDormand, and John Lithgow, with newcomer Lucas Neff playing the boy that befriends the young dinosaur.
The Good Dinosuar is set to be released on November 25th, just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. It is a tale that is filled with a thrilling journey of self-discovery and featuring plenty of laughs.
