Pixar's The Good Dinosaur

The first trailer has been released for The Good Dinosaur, Pixar’s upcoming animated feature from director Peter Sohn (Partly Cloudy).

The movie is set in an alternate history where the asteroid that wiped dinosaurs from the face of our planet never actually hit, and follows a dinosaur and his human friend. It’s the second Pixar movie to release this year—Inside Out, which arrives later this month on June 19th, being the first—after the studio went through all of last year without a release, which hadn’t happened since 2005.

You can read more about The Good Dinosaur and check out the first teaser trailer below.

Disney In Depth: The Walt Disney Studios 2015 Preview (Part 2)

Disney In Depth banner

The Walt Disney Studios’ most exciting slate of films in recent memory arrives in 2015. Despite a few films shifting release dates from when I first considered this to be Disney’s most major year ever back in May 2013, the line-up of movies can excite anyone. Whether you adore Disney’s standard fare (sports, sci-fi, fantasy, and animation) or even anything under the Pixar, Lucasfilm, or Marvel banners, Disney will surely dominate the box office and perhaps even critical hits, too.

This second part (be sure to check out Part 1 right here if you missed it) will focus on each of the theatrical films to debut from The Walt Disney Studios during the latter part of this year.

Disney Pixar The Good Dinosaur

As part of their 2015 Film Preview, Disney has released new concept art for Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur, along with a revised title card for the animated feature.

Check out the new art here below.

Lucas Neff voices the main character, Arlo the Apatosaurus, with the following voicing Arlo’s family: John Lithgow as Poppa, Frances McDormand as Momma, Bill Hader as older brother Forrest, Neil Patrick Harris as brother Cliff, and Judy Greer as sister Ivy. Back in August 2013 at Disney’s D23 Expo, we got our first look at the film when it was initially slated to be released on May 30, 2014. Since then, director Bob Peterson was moved off the project, replaced by Peter Sohn, and the date pushed to November 25, 2015. (Sohn recently spoke about the delays and story changes.)

Disney Pixar The Good Dinosaur

Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur was originally slated for a 2014 release. But problems with the story forced the film’s original director, Bob Peterson, out, and pushed the film back to a November 2015 release. The first signs of trouble started to appear when Peterson was noticeably absent at the D23 Expo in 2013.

Since then Peter Sohn came on board as director to resolve some of the story issues that The Good Dinosaur was suffering from, and in a new report from The LA Times, we are getting a better understanding of why the film had to be pushed back, and what he has done to fix some of the problems. Hit the jump for more and to see a new image from the movie.

Disney In Depth: Can Pixar Regain Its Glory?

For 15 years, one computer-animation studio dominated Hollywood with 11 major hit films, earning awards a plenty and worldwide critical acclaim for its output. Then came Cars 2. And Brave. Lest we forget Monsters University (which I actually found entertaining) and an entire year (2014) with no feature films. Pixar was a powerhouse, but now its corporate owner (Disney) has an unbeatable animation studio of its own. The question we all continue to wonder is if Pixar can reclaim its title as an unstoppable force.

Disney In Depth previews the recent past and future of Pixar, hoping to determine if John Lasseter‘s computer-animation studio can finally be able to dismiss naysayers, once and for all, that its hit streak was a one-time experience.

Disney Pixar The Good Dinosaur title

Today Walt Disney Pictures announced new premiere dates for several of their important future releases, including two from their blockbuster CGI animation division Pixar.

The fishy sequel Finding Dory was originally supposed to open on November 25, 2015. It has been pushed back to June 17, 2016. Dory’s old release slot has instead been given to the studio’s next original feature The Good Dinosaur, which has been delayed a year-and-a-half from its original May 30, 2014 date. Stepping into that opening slot will be Maleficent, an alternate take on the story of Sleeping Beauty told from the perspective of the story’s villain, played by Angelina Jolie. The movie will be released in 3D.

Disney Pixar The Good Dinosaur title

Earlier this week, reports of Pixar pulling Bob Peterson off directing The Good Dinosaur surfaced. He was notably absent at both the animation presentation and The Good Dinosaur panel at D23, leaving some wondering if there was trouble between the two parties.

Well, it isn’t so much trouble, but more of just a shift in direction. The LA Times confirms the news of Peterson’s departure from the project. However, the director, who was the voice of Roz in Monsters, Inc, will remains a part of the Pixar family. The film’s directorial duties will go to the Pixar Brain Trust, which consists of: John Lasseter, Lee Unkrich, Mark Andrews, and Pete Sohn, the latter of whom had originally been co-director with Peterson.

D23 Expo 2013: Disney Pixar The Good Dinosaur banner

“This is the biggest ‘what if?’ ever,” John Lasseter said today at the Animation panel at this year’s D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA, in describing Disney/Pixar’s animated feature The Good Dinosaur. Most Pixar films start off with big questions, he said, and The Good Dinosaur is no exception. Footage was shown, and details about the characters and who’d be voicing them were announced.

The main character is Arlo the Apatosaurus, as voiced by Lucas Neff. Other characters in the film include members of Arlo’s family: John Lithgow as Poppa, Frances McDormand as Momma, Bill Hader as older brother Forrest, Neil Patrick Harris as brother Cliff, Judy Greer as sister Ivy, and then there’s Neff as Arlo. Hader, Greer and Neff came out onto the stage, having just met one another.

Pixar Will Produce More Original Projects; Will Release A Sequel Every Other Year

Pixar had been regarded as a studio who could produce high quality original films. Then they dipped their toes into sequels, and for all the sequels they have made, only one can be considered the worst of not only the sequels, but of Pixar’s entire library itself. While Monsters University is definitely a step in the right direction for the studio, after two softball films – Cars 2 and Brave, the film itself is a prequel.

But for fans who are worried that the studio is straying away from original content, Ed Catmull, the President of Pixar, said that the studio is hoping to do an original movie every single year, and sequels every other year.
