Updated plot synopsis for Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur


Pixar’s second movie for 2015 is “The Good Dinosaur.” We don’t know much about it other than it had a director change a little late in the game putting Peter Sohn in charge. Sohn, reportedly made some story changes that has the movie on a different track.

We now have a new plot synopsis:

“The Good Dinosaur” asks the question: What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? Pixar Animation Studios takes you on an epic journey into the world of dinosaurs where an Apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend. While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of.”

The new synopsis places nature as more of an antagonist than before. It also places less emphasis on the how Arlo’s familiy became unsettled. But the story is still about a young dinosaur on a journey and growing up. I can’t wait to learn more.


Pixar’s “The Good Dinosaur” plods into theaters on November 25, 2015.
