I recently watched this film in the cinema with my boyfriend, and I am pleased to say that it was a pretty good option. I thought the concept of a dinosaur completing agricultural activities to be a genuine one, whereas humans were the pests. It promotes a different perspective than what we are commonly exposed to today, especially with the dinosaurs being comprehensive and humans still holding the dreaded language barrier.
Most of Disney's animated films are within this format (like Disney's Cars for example), compared to the classical animations of Cinderella, or The Hunchback of Notre Dame. But not only are the Dinosaurs in this film well animated for the eyes of children, the scenic views are breathtaking. The countryside holds a very realistic aspect, it appears to be animated, but not too animated to the extent that it is unrealistic. The movement of the river water and the rustling of the trees is very close to real life. But the only funny or interesting concept is that the dinosaurs appear out of place due to such well animated backgrounds, allowing us the idea that that was not the Earth we belong to. Though of course, the animation of the dinosaurs were to suit children, not teenagers like myself.
Disney is, undeniably, a master at exhibiting morals through their work. Regarding animated films, many of the thematic messages in the movies stick out appropriately: Ohana in the film Lilo & Stitch, the notion that the fast lane is not always what you want in the movie Cars, and many more films as well. The moral held in this movie, I won't spoil it for you, is one that children may not understand now, but will certainly appreciate later. And as for the adults, they will certainly appreciate Disney's work.
A family for all or even a movie for a date, Disney Pixar's The Good Dinosaur continues on the magic of Disney.
