WATCH: Pixar Releases New Trailer for ‘The Good Dinosaur’

The first full-length trailer for ‘The Good Dinosaur’ shows off the incredible photorealistic world built for the film as well as the more cartoonish characters that inhabit it.

Disney and Pixar have released the first full-length trailer for The Good Dinosaur that shows off the incredible photo-realistic world built for the film as well as the more cartoonish characters that inhabit it.

The second film from Pixar for 2015, 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.

Directed by Peter Sohn and produced by Denise Ream, The Good Dinosaur boasts a voice cast that includes Raymond Ochoa, Jeffrey Wright, Steve Zahn, AJ Buckley, Anna Paquin, Sam Elliott, Frances McDormand, Marcus Scribner, and Jack Bright. Bob Peterson, the co-director of Up, was originally tapped to helm The Good Dinosaur; he was removed from the project last year and the original May 2014 release date was moved to 2015.

Sohn made his directorial debut with the Pixar short film Partly Cloudy. He has worked in the art, story and animation departments, and also has voiced the characters of Emile from Academy Award-winning Ratatouille and Scott “Squishy” Squibbles from Monsters University. Ream produced the Golden Globe-nominated film Cars 2 for Pixar Animation Studios, and served as associate producer for Pixar’s Academy Award-winning film Up. She also has an extensive background in producing visual effects and animation for live action films.

The Good Dinosaur opens in theatres nationwide on November 25.
