Disney*Pixar’s Newest Film, “The Good Dinosaur” in theaters today, brings us a familiar story of friendship and learning how to face your fears. Th film starts off asking “What would have happened if the asteroid that supposedly killed off the dinosaurs, missed Earth? The Good Dinosaur’s response is – We would find ourselves in a land in the distant future where dinosaurs and humans co-exist.
The Good Dinosaur starts out with the birth of the lead character Arlo, (Raymond Ochoa) a young and somewhat clumsy little Apatosaurus. We meet his family and immediately bond with them as they go through the daily struggles of working on the farm. The youngest member of the family, Arlo goes through some hard moments to find his place in the family. A series of events, introduce Arlo to Spot (Jack Bright), a young feral boy who acts more like a dog than a boy and is all alone in the world. Together they are thrown into an adventure where both will discover a special bond and the meaning of teamwork. Whether they are fighting off pterodactyls or helping T-Rex cowboys, and raptors rustle up a herd of longhorns, the two must work together in the wild as they make their way back to Arlo’s family.
The familiar plot of a life changing events, a struggle to overcome a hardship or fear and the special bond that is formed between characters is one we have seen in many Disney and Pixar Films including Lion King, UP, Finding Nemo and many others. In The Good Dinosaur, the story line takes it one step further and provides a few more scary moments and some uncomfortable scenes where Arlo repeatedly falls, slips and / or slides into the ground, boulders etc. causing this Entertainment Writer to repeatedly wince in her seat.
The Good Dinosaur is a great movie and one that will be enjoyed by all, however, it is one that may be better suited for the older kids in the family. Bring plenty of tissues and go see “The Good Dinosaur” in theaters starting Wednesday, November 25th.
