Peter Sohn must have his day at Pixar scheduled down to a T. Not only is he the voice of many popular characters from their films (Emile in Ratatouille, Russell in Up, and Squishy in Monsters University), he’s a story board artist, animator, and now a feature director. Sohn is currently directing The Good Dinosaur which is one of two Pixar films coming out in 2015.

good-dinosaur-postThe original idea for The Good Dinosaur was from Pixar artist Bob Peterson, but he was moved from the movie last year to a different project and now Sohn is working on getting everything ready for its November 25, 2015 release. The movie was originally scheduled for a 2014 release, but much of the film has been reworked and some of the actors have been asked to return to record new dialog.

Plot Synopsis: 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

Surprisingly, we haven’t heard much else about the film, but yesterday Pixar released a little teaser from the artistry of Sohn’s own hand.

I wish there was more than that.

No matter how Pixar sees fit to use him, Peter Sohn hasn’t disappointed me yet. I can’t wait to see more of Arlo and see what Sohn can deliver this time.
