The Good Dinosaur
You wait two years for a new Pixar movie, then two come along at once. Hot-ish on the heels of this summer’s ‘Inside Out’ comes this more traditional family-friendly affair set in an alternate reality populated by intelligent dinosaurs (the meteorite that killed them off never hit us, you see). The story follows an Apatosaurus named Arlo who, with shades of ‘The Lion King’, loses his Dad in a sudden accident and wanders off into the wilderness, only to make friends with a human boy. Director Peter Sohn’s only credit thus far is on likeable short ‘Partly Cloudy’, but with a script co-written by Pixar stalwart Bob Peterson, we reckon this one could be a lot of fun.
