After the incredible Inside Out (in the running for my favorite film of the year so far), I’ve become re-energized regarding Pixar’s output, which I was worried might not ever happen after a few years of, let’s just say, not their best work.
Their second offering this year, The Good Dinosaur, opens on November 25th and posits a world where the asteroid that sent the dinosaurs into extinction never hit Earth. And now, man and dinosaur live side by side.
Directed by Peter Sohn, this is a project that hit a number of production snags on the way to the big screen, including announcing a recasting of almost every role last month (save for Frances McDormand). Hopefully Disney’s revamping of the production pays off.
