The Good Dinosaur logo

2015 is the rare year with not one but two Pixar films: this weekend’s Inside Out, and this fall’s still-mysterious The Good Dinosaur.

Most of what we’ve heard about the latter so far has had to do with its offscreen woes. The Good Dinosaur was originally scheduled for release in 2014, but was yanked off the calendar for extensive retooling. Now that it’s on track for a fall 2015 release, Pixar and director Peter Sohn are eager to show off some of the goods.

In an hourlong presentation this morning, Sohn offered a first look at some charming new footage from the film. In addition, he offered new details about the story and making of The Good Dinosaur, including his inspirations for the movie. (Yes, Jurassic Park came up.) Find out everything we learned after the jump.  Read More »

Best Stories of the Wek

We’ve reached the end of a very busy week. There were tons of trailers and some pretty big news stories, so this is a pretty beefy edition of the Best Stories of the Week.

Recapping the news from the past seven days, you’ll find updates on the future of Marvel Studios‘ television side and Samuel L. Jackson in the cinematic universe, some rumors about the future of Star Wars and details on the past of a certain iconic character from the saga, a first look at The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, new writers for the Transformers franchise and future universe and more.

Plus, there’s trailers for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Steven Spielberg’s Bride of Spies, Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur, and a double dose of Jake Gyllenhaal in Southpaw and Everest, and that’s not even half of the (mostly) great, new trailers we saw this week. Catch up on the Best Stories of the Week after the jump! Read More »

Good Dinosaur Details

Good Dinosaur Details

Pixar premiered its new film Inside Out at Cannes, and along with that finished debut the studio showed off footage from two other upcoming films, The Good Dinosaur and Finding Dory.

The former film, about a dinosaur who befriends a human boy, represents the culmination of a long and ultimately revamped story development cycle. The latter is the sequel to Finding Nemo. Thanks to the Cannes presentation we have a few new comments from John Lasseter about each film, and tantalizing descriptions of environments in The Good Dinosaur as among the most realistic Pixar has ever created.

Good Dinosaur Arlo art

Pixar released zero new features in 2014, but the company is making up for that absence by opening two films in 2015. The first is Inside Out, due out in June, and the second is The Good Dinosaur, scheduled for November. While we’ve already seen a trailer for the former, the latter remains a bit more mysterious for now. Still, we’ll take what we can get — and today, that means a new bit of concept art and an updated official logo.

Get a look at The Good Dinosaur concept art and logo after the jump.

good dinosaur delay

A director swap, a 18 month delay, what exactly when went down behind the scenes of Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur. In an alternate world, we’d have already seen the movie by now, as it was originally scheduled for release Summer 2014. However, story problems forced the film to get delayed a year and a half, change directors, and change a lot of what was happening in the movie.

In a revealing story in the Los Angeles Times, new director Peter Sohn explains why the film was delayed and what he’s done to change it for the better. Read about the Good Dinosaur delay, changes, and see a new image, below. Read More »

Good Dinosaur changes

There’s no new Pixar movie in 2014, but we’ll get two from the studio in 2015. June brings Pete Docter’s Inside Out (which you can read lots about here) and then, November 25, 2015, they’ll release The Good Dinosaur.

The Good Dinosaur was originally scheduled to hit theaters in Summer 2014, but a change of directors and lack of confidence in the story pushed it back over a year. New director Peter Sohn doesn’t want people to forget the film is coming, though, and released a cute, short little teaser on Twitter. Check it out below. Read More »
