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!
The synopsis for the film answers the question of what would happen if the asteroid that hit earth and killed the dinosaurs actually missed the planet entirely. The first trailer, just released today, tackles this “what if?”directly and is likely the opening scene from the film. Make sure to take note of the animation of the asteroids in space and see just how hyper-realistic it appears to be.
Watch the teaser trailer below:
A teaser poster was also unveiled today. It beautifully demonstrates that the relationship between Arlo, the dinosaur, and the human boy will be at the heart of the film. The gorgeous cave-wall style of the art is just a plus. Take a closer look at the poster here:
The Good Dinosaur teaser will definitely be attached to prints of Inside Out, so you will be able to see it on the big screen in a few short weeks. The film, directed by Pete Sohn, will hit theaters on November 25th!
