Co-director Peter Sohn and producer Denise Ream announce the voice cast for Pixar’s animated feature, The Good Dinosaur, due in theaters May 30, 2014.
At today's animation presentation at Disney’s D23 Expo, hosted by John Lasseter, co-director Peter Sohn and producer Denise Ream announced the voice cast for The Good Dinosaur, the upcoming animated feature from Pixar due in theaters May 30, 2014.
The Good Dinosaur asks the generations-old question: What if the cataclysmic asteroid that forever changed life on Earth actually missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? The film is a humorous and exciting original story about Arlo, a lively 70-foot-tall teenage Apatosaurus with a big heart. After a traumatic event rattles Arlo’s tranquil community, he sets out on a quest to restore peace, gaining an unlikely companion along the way—a young human boy named Spot.
Key member of the cast were announced, including Lucas Neff as the voice of Arlo; Bill Hader, voice of Forrest; Judy Greer, voice of Ivy; Neil Patrick Harris, voice of Cliff; John Lithgow, voice of Poppa; and Frances McDormand, voice of Momma.
Neff and Greer appeared on stage, alongside Hader, whose voice was also heard in Pixar’s Monsters University.
