The Good Dinosaur will be opening in theaters November 25. Be sure to save the date. The Good Dinosaur will be the perfect way to entertain the children while you’re preparing dishes for Thanksgiving Day. Especially when you need a little me time through the day. From Disney Pixar’s file: “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. An Apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend named Spot. “From the moment Arlo is born, he’s afraid of the world,” says first-time director Peter Sohn. Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears. He discovers what he is truly capable of while traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape.
“Spot is the opposite of Arlo,” continues Sohn. “He’s tenacious, brave and an animal in every sense of the word. It’s the story of a boy and his dog. In this story, the boy is a dinosaur and the dog is a boy.”
The voice cast includes Jeffrey Wright (“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay” – parts I & II, HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”) as Arlo’s wise Poppa, Frances McDormand (HBO’s “Olive Kitteridge,” “Fargo”) as Arlo’s strong Momma, Marcus Scribner (ABC’s “black•ish”) as Arlo’s brother Buck, Raymond Ochoa (NBC’s “The Night Shift,” TNT’s “Rizzoli & Isles,” “Disney’s A Christmas Carol”) as Arlo, Jack Bright (“Monsters University”) as Spot, Steve Zahn (“Captain Fantastic,” “The Ridiculous 6,” “Rescue Dawn,” “Mad Dogs”) as a fearless pterodactyl named Thunderclap, AJ Buckley (TNT’s “Murder in the First,” FX’s “Justified”) as teen T-Rex Nash, Anna Paquin (HBO’s “True Blood”) as Nash’s tenacious sister Ramsey, and Sam Elliott (FX’s “Justified,” “I’ll See You in My Dreams,” “Grandma”) as T-Rex patriarch Butch.
