Now, the trailer for The Good Dinosaur is all sorts of cute and cuddly, but why is this even a thing in 2015? Dinosaurs died out 65 million years before the first humans showed up, so again, why is this even a thing?
I find these things annoying. Yes, there’s all sorts of adventure, and beautiful graphics, friendship, nice montages, the usual Pixar stuff… But, just because it’s a kids movie, doesn’t mean it should stray so far from being accurate. It seems a bit lazy to me, and intellectually dishonest. You be the judge, though.
“The Good Dinosaur” asks the generations-old question: What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? In theaters November 25, 2015, the film is a humorous and exciting original story about Arlo, a lively Apatosaurus with a big heart. After a traumatic event unsettles Arlo’s family, he sets out on a remarkable journey, gaining an unlikely companion along the way – a human boy. “The Good Dinosaur” is an extraordinary journey of self-discovery full of thrilling adventure, hilarious characters and poignant heart.
