‘The Good Dinosaur’ sees Pixar delve into prehistory with a dinosaur tale.
The film imagines what might have been if the asteroid that altered the direction of life on earth had missed the planet.
‘The Good Dinosaur’ marks the directorial debut of Peter Sohn.
He says the giant reptiles have fascinated him since he first fell in love with them as a boy:
“It’s just one of those things that when you go to a museum and you see these fantastical skeletons and somebody tells you “those were walking around” and you’re like, I can’t believe that. And then, you know, the variety of the species is just incredible and the fact that they were here for millions of years.”
There are plenty of quirky characters such as the grumpy senior Tyrannosaurus Rex and group leader voiced by Sam Elliott: “I think this film is a very kind of a human story. You know, that’s very common to all of us, particularly the fortunate ones among us that have children, that have a family that’s holding together – whether they’re having a tough time or whether it’s good times, family is family,” said the actor.
The ‘Good Dinosaur’ is doing the rounds now.
