The Good Dinosaur hits theaters less than one year from now (November 25, 2015) and Pixar announced the one-year countdown by releasing a new piece of concept artwork along with an updated synopsis. Although we had already updated the concept artwork on our earlier post, we also decided to read the synopsis again to check if it was also updated – sure enough, it was. Although the details mostly remain the same, we were excited to catch one new story element in the new plot description – a mention of a traumatic event happening within Arlo’s family.
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.
