Earning over $760 million, Pixar is learning, after a handful of sequels, that audiences are than happy to watch original movies too. Now they are hoping they can strike gold twice with “The Good Dinosaur,” which arrives this fall. Certainly, following in the monster size footsteps of this year’s other prehistoric hit, “Jurassic World,” can’t hurt and this new international spot is charming enough.
Featuring the voices of Raymond Ochoa, Jeffrey Wright, Steve Zahn, AJ Buckley, Anna Paquin, Sam Elliott, Frances McDormand, Marcus Scribner, and Jack Bright, the story imagines a world where dinosaurs and humans evolve together, and follows a young boy and cutesy dinosaur who embark on a journey together. Yeah, it’s kids stuff, but Pixar has shown that it knows how to make their movies work for adults too.
“The Good Dinosaur” opens on November 25th. [Flickering Myth]
