I hope you’re ready for a family movie night out at the theater, because The Good Dinosaur is out and it is spectacular! Disney Pixar is at it again, and they definitely know how to evoke emotion out of all of the animated creatures they put on screen. Be ready for lots of adventure, laughs, sighs, a few “awwww’s” and try to hold back those tears!
Y’all. I am a sucker for a good Pixar movie, and The Good Dinosaur is the second one they’ve given us this year! 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 side kick!
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 story line 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 is a must see, especially if you enjoy animated movies! Get ready for adventure, laughter, friendship, love and sentiment. Grab the family this weekend and head to the theater, you won’t be disappointed! This movie is perfect for all ages, it’s rated PG but I would give it a G rating.
