Disney beat the drum loudly for Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur during a wide-ranging presentation this month at the Cannes Film Festival. The footage shown to the tony crowd was well received, and now we’re getting our first look in a teaser that dropped this morning. This is the pic directed by Pete Sohn, who stepped in for Bob Peterson after he departed in 2013, resulting in a revamp and then a change in release date from May 2014 to November 25 this year.
The Good Dinosaur teaser gets right to it, essentially asking the question, “What if the asteroid that wiped out dinosaurs actually missed Earth?” The story follows teenager dino Arlo, who is separated from his family when he falls into a raging river and is swept hundreds of miles away. He comes across Spot, a human cave-boy orphan with whom he forms a bond as he attempts to get home.
Check it out. Will it be worth the wait?
