We love Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur
Disney’s Pixar invited us to The Good Dinosaur movie premiere in Los Angeles, CA this week, it was an absolutely amazing experience! We have attended numerous Disney premieres and red carpet events, and this one was so good. Read on to see what it was like, this red carpet event featured the directors, producers, cast, and other members of The Good Dinosaur film-making team, plus a slew of other Hollywood celebrities, media and, yours truly!
It was a red – ahem – GREEN carpet affair in Hollywood this week, the El Capitan Theatre was all decked out to celebrate the upcoming release of The Good Dinosaur! There’s truly nothing like a Disney movie premiere, when it comes to the themed decor, celebrity guest list, and the jumping after-party, they really go all out with a bang!
The Good Dinosaur movie premiere in Hollywood
Walking a Hollywood carpet is quite a surreal experience. I was in awe at the number of people who were dressed to the nines, and the number of people who were waiting alongside the barricades to get a glimpse of the event! Here’s a great shot of the cast and the Pixar creative team behind the film…
After taking a few photos and checking out the rest of the scene, we headed into the theater to take our seats. This was my first time screening The Good Dinosaur, I LOVED it, and I know my kids will, too!
The Good Dinosaur movie prehistoric after-party
After the movie, everyone was escorted to the premiere after-party in an upscale lounge. When we walked in, I was amazed at how well they decked out the room in The Good Dinosaur decorations, delicious food was served, the bar was stocked and open, the DJ was pumping and it was a fun, crowded scene!
I was with a group of great bloggers, a few of which I know and work with often. It was a wonderful thing to be able to experience such a great event with them! There were a bunch of fun activity stations set up for the kids to make dinosaur-themed bracelets and other crafts, and there was a video game station as well. We had a little fun with the green screen photo booth…
Among the celebrities we saw were Anna Paquin (voice of Ramsey), Mario Lopez, Sam Elliott, Weird Al Yankovic, and I even got a photo with two of the kids from the show Blackish, Marcus Scribner (voice of Buck) and Yara Shahidi!
Our Good Dinosaur movie review
Y’all. I am a sucker for a good Pixar movie, and The Good Dinosaur is the second one they gave us in 2015! Are we lucky or what? Disney invited us to Los Angeles to attend The Good Dinosaur movie premiere, where we watched a screening of the film and learned a whole lot about it. I love the story and the animation is stunning!
“The Good Dinosaur” asks the question: What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? Pixar Animation Studios takes you on an epic journey into the world of dinosaurs where an Apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend. While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of.
In comparison to previous releases, The Good Dinosaur has much more of a mellow tone. The scene is set in the real world, which actually looks real, and Pixar uses characters that are, or once were; dinosaurs, a feral human, birds, snakes, insects, and other animals. So, no talking cars, toys, or monsters, and definitely no superheroes or magical powers! The catch: the animals talk, but the human doesn’t. That’s Spot, and he becomes more of a pet, or kinda like Arlo’s sidekick!
Friendship, family, and facing fears together
The Good Dinosaur does a great job of balancing the story to keep you interested, even when Arlo is trudging through an intense mountain range, something unexpectedly funny happens and makes everyone laugh – literally out loud! The storyline is very relatable, it’s about an unexpected friendship that blossoms, real fears about being lost and finding our own way, missing our families, dealing with tragedy, and all the challenges we face along the way.
The Good Dinosaur movie is available now
The Good Dinosaur movie premiere was awesome, and the movie is out now. If you haven’t seen it, you have to grab it! With tons of adventure, action, a few sentimental moments, and young Arlo’s quest to rid himself of his fears, it’s the perfect family film. Be prepared for lots of laughs, sighs, a few “awwww’s” and try to hold back those tears!
