The Good Dinosaur Trailer (2015)

Trailer for The Good Dinosaur.

An epic journey into the world of dinosaurs where an Apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend.

The Good Dinosaur is Pixar's sixteenth animated feature film, and its 2015 release marks the first time Pixar have released two movies in one year; Inside Out also released in 2015.

Once again, John Ratzenberger voices a character in this movie, continuing his tradition of appearing in every Pixar film, though he only has one line in The Good Dinosaur.

Arlo, the main dinosaur in the film, has his movements based on that of a baby elephant.

What would have happened if the meteor that hit earth and made dinosaurs extinct, missed? The result, possibly, could have been that dinosaurs and early man lived side by side. Pixar adopts this premise and brings us The Good Dinosaur, a tale of a friendship between a boy named Spot and a young Apatosaurus called Arlo.

The twist is that Arlo is the more cultured and educated of the two. Spot is still feral, running around on all fours. The result, therefore, is that their relationship reflects that of a boy and his dog, but in this instance, Arlo is the boy.

When Arlo becomes lost, Spot helps him to find his way back home, and the whole movie is the journey they undertake together, and the relationship that builds between the two.

As you can see from the The Good Dinosaur trailer, the animation of the background scenery is simply incredible. I'm a huge fan of animated movies but I have never seen anything as enthralling as this. It's like we are really in each of the locations we see on screen and because of that, maybe, the characters don't really make as much of an impression. They seem to jar with the backgrounds as they are more cartoonish, but that said, if they were made more life-like, they would lack the cuteness that make them desirable to young kids.

The Good Dinosaur is not Pixar's greatest work. That's not to say it's not good; it is, and it's one that will tug on the heartstrings for sure, but it's just not great. Still worth a watch though, especially for younger kids who will easily appreciate the simple, uncomplicated storyline.
