I was invited as media to cover this press event. All opinions are my own.
“Pixar Animation Studios takes you on an epic journey into the world of dinosaurs where an Apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend named Spot. While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of.”
The Good Dinosaur’s heartfelt story about friendship and determination will easily become a family favorite! It’s full of love and adventure too! Executive producer, John Lasseter describes The Good Dinosaur as, “one of the most emotional movies we’ve ever made.” The dinosaur family consists of Momma, Poppa, Arlo, Buck and Libby. Arlo is the smallest of the family and finds himself always falling short when it comes to farm life and chores. He’s determined to make his mark (literally) and sets out to do just that, but not by choice.
While on his adventure, he meets an unlikely friend, Spot, who’s lost his family. Although Arlo fights the friendship, the two quickly realize they need one another.
“The unlikely friends embark on an eventful journey through stunning but often unforgiving environments in an effort to get Arlo home. Their story unfolds visually—a hallmark of Pixar storytelling that’s taken to new heights in “The Good Dinosaur.”
Along the way, Arlo and Spot meet T-Rexes and become an unlikely team. The sweeping landscapes provide a beautifully detailed backdrop for the film. It’s really incredible to see the movie unfold.
The Good Dinosaur is a wonderful film that I highly recommend for all families! It really brings a sense of family and friendship to a film like no other before. You will fall in love with Arlo, Spot and the rest of the characters in this heartwarming film.
See The Good Dinosaur in theaters Thanksgiving Day!
