So, unless you've been living in the Jurassic period, you would have known all about the latest teaser trailer released by Disney◦Pixar, focusing on their November film 'The Good Dinosaur'.
This film is good news for a number of reasons.
- This film makes 2015 the first year that Pixar has had two full length feature films released
- This film is about dinosaurs
- This film has gone through a lot to be made
Initially meant for a 2014 release date, it was pushed back due to story and director changes. So what did these changes bring?
The official synopsis reads as:
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.
With further comments from the studio stating that the relationship depicted in this film, is similar one of a man and dog, except the dinosaurs are evolved and intellectual, taking the role of the man, and the man (Spot) communicates through grunts and noises, assuming the role of the dog.
But what about the characters we didn't get to see in the teaser?
Well, a few weeks back, character-drawings were leaked. Not really concept art, nor the final look, the following images give a rough guideline about the main characters that we could expect to meed in this blockbuster. The dinosaurs seem to fit into the cartoony look of the animals within this film and some were briefly seen in the segments of the teaser, but here is a more detailed look of them:
There have been talks that the dinosaurs have taken up the basic jobs of human life as well. With Arlo being a farmer, however with all the story changes who knows what's really in store. All that is apparent is that, Pixar is back in top form.
