You may have noticed that Pixar didn’t release a movie this year. This is the first time that’s happened since 2005, and it’s due to the fact that the studio instituted a director change on its original 2014 film, The Good Dinosaur, fairly late in the game, resulting in a pretty significant overhaul of the story. The film will finally hit theaters next fall with co-director Peter Sohn stepping into the director’s chair to tell the story of a dinosaur named Arlo who, after a traumatic event unsettles his family, sets out on a journey with an unlikely companion—a human boy. The buddy comedy takes place in world in which the dinosaurs never went extinct, and this new piece of concept art offers up a striking tease of the kind of visuals we might expect.
Check out the new The Good Dinosaur concept art and official logo after the jump. The voice cast includes Lucas Neff, Bill Hader, Neil Patrick Harris, John Lithgow, Frances McDormand, and Judy Greer. The Good Dinosaur opens in theaters on November 25, 2015.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Good Dinosaur:
“The Good Dinosaur” asks the generations-old question: What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? In theaters November 25, 2015, the film is a humorous and exciting original story about Arlo, a lively Apatosaurus with a big heart. After a traumatic event unsettles Arlo’s family, he sets out on a remarkable journey, gaining an unlikely companion along the way – a human boy. “The Good Dinosaur” is an extraordinary journey of self-discovery full of thrilling adventure, hilarious characters and poignant heart.
