We’ve had a new Pixar movie every year for eight years now, so when The Good Dinosaur was pushed back from May 30, 2014 to November 25, 2015, it was tough not to be both concerned and disappointed, especially considering what went down prior to that announcement. Almost exactly a year ago, word got out that director Bob Peterson was removed from the project. On top of that, Peterson’s co-director, Peter Sohn, didn’t even get the solo gig. Instead, he’s overseeing it as part of the Pixar Brain Trust.
That’s not something you want to hear when it comes to an especially highly anticipated film. However, while talking to John Lithgow today about his upcoming release, Love Is Strange, he assured us that The Good Dinosaur is in great shape. Hit the jump to hear about how the delay affected Lithgow’s work on the film.
