The reason why Pixar did not have a feature film to release in 2014 was because the studio decided to delay The Good Dinosaur into late 2015 in order to polish the film’s story. Although the premise has not changed – it remains a film that takes place in a world where the asteroid never killed off the dinosaurs – there have been many shifts in the story. Now, we have come to discover that Pixar has recast almost every role. Find out which actors have joined the film after the break! [Read more…]
Much of the conversation surrounding Pixar this year has revolved around Inside Out, the studio’s latest majestic feature film (I saw it last week, and it is brilliant), which is set for release in June. However, this is the first year that Pixar is releasing two films, as The Good Dinosaur is headed to theaters in November. The dinosaur film has been reworked extensively in the past few years, accounting for why it was delayed from its scheduled release date last year. Today, we get our first extended look at the film in its current state in a teaser trailer and poster which you can take a look at after the break! [Read more…]
Cannes has been quite a whirlwind adventure for Pixar this year, as the studio’s upcoming film, Pete Docter’s Inside Out, enjoyed its world premiere at the annual French festival and saw heaps of praise thrown upon it. With two new Pixar films after Inside Out expected in the next year, Pixar’s CCO John Lasseter took the opportunity at Cannes to share more details about the studio’s upcoming slate. After the break, read what he had to say about The Good Dinosaur, Finding Dory, and even Toy Story 4! [Read more…]
With all the excitement about Pixar’s June 2015 film, Inside Out, it may be easy to forget that the studio has another film that will be released during the calendar year – The Good Dinosaur. The dinosaur film was pushed back from its original 2014 release date to undergo major story changes, but now it seems to be sailing smoothly towards its late 2015 release date. In a preview of its upcoming films, Disney sent out a press kit for 2015, in which a new logo and concept art for the film were revealed. Take a peek at them after the break! [Read more…]
Following the removal of Bob Peterson from the lead director position on Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur, changes to the film’s story were expected. After all, when Brad Bird took over Ratatouille and Mark Andrews sprang onto Brave, they not only brought new leadership to their films – they also led the way for a shift in the films’ plot. Peter Sohn, who was originally announced as the co-director on The Good Dinosaur, eventually took over and has introduced significant changes to the story that Peterson developed. Find more details of what you can expect after the break! [Read more…]
Last August, we found out that director Bob Peterson had been taken off The Good Dinosaur after the film apparently hit creative difficulties. A group of Pixar directors including Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3), Mark Andrews (Brave), John Lasseter (Toy Story), and the film’s original co-director Pete Sohn took over. We still do not know who took over as lead director (if anyone did, that is), but we hear that the film’s story has been overhauled. Find more details after the break! [Read more…]
On Saturday, many woke up to the news that a new poster for The Good Dinosaur had been released. However, things just did not add up. As I pointed out when we posted the image, it would be questionable for Disney/Pixar to release a poster for a film two years down the line when the film next in line (Inside Out) still had not had a poster released. Studios tend to work in an orderly fashion, and promoting film number two before number one would be bizarre. Additionally, the website listed on the poster is not live, making it obvious that the poster was not meant to be released – not yet at least. Today, we have confirmation that the poster was not released by Pixar.
