Pixar Animation Studios’ latest feature film The Good Dinosaur is now available at your favorite retailers on Blu-ray and Digital HD.
Pixar Animation Studios has released another gorgeous trailer for their upcoming animated feature The Good Dinosaur. And this time, we get to hear the dinosaurs talk!
Since 1914 when Winsor McKay introduced the world to his magnificent Gertie the Dinosaur, practically every animation company has followed suit, trying to bring to life the prehistoric pets. We got wind of Pixar’s project, The Good Dinosaur, at D23 in 2011, but received an icy blow last year when it was announced the film, scheduled for theater release May 2014, would be postponed until late 2015.
So June 29, 2007 doesn’t sound like that long ago, but along with being the release date of Pixar’s 8th feature film, Ratatouille, this was also the day that the first iPhone came out. Crazy, right? I can’t imagine life without iPhones—and I can’t imagine a Pixar repertoire without Remy and Linguini. Not since Lady and the Tramp’s spaghetti scene has such delectable food and atmosphere been shown in an animated film. However, it wasn’t always peaches and cream for this culinary classic.
Recently we wrote about how Pixar had pulled director Bob Peterson off of their forthcoming film, The Good Dinosaur. Now comes news that the film (originally set for May 30, 2014) has been pushed to November 25th, 2015, the date Andrew Stanton’s Finding Dory was set to open on. That film will now open in the summer of 2016.
At Friday’s “Art and Imagination: Animation at The Walt Disney Studios” presentation, chief creative officer John Lasseter was the host for a 3+ hour presentation on the current slate of films at Pixar Animation Studios, Walt Disney Animation Studios and Disneytoon Studios. The Pixar slate was presented first and the crowd (myself included) was completely wowed by the clips shown by the Pixar filmmakers.
