The Trailer For Pixar's New Film Looks Adorable

And still leaves us hanging.

Posted on

Pixar released a new trailer for The Good Dinosaur, and it's even more ethereal than we expected.

Despite the recent announcement of a cast overhaul and the absence of vocals in the trailer, Pixar's still sitting at the helm of our emotional dashboards, waiting to push all of your buttons. (Were the characters in Inside Out actually a metaphor for what they do to us? We're onto you, Pixar.)


In stark contrast to the realism of the surroundings, the characters are quite cartoonish, rotund and easily filled in a coloring book, but still earnestly appealing to our inner kid.

Arlo, the titular apatosaurus (above), will be voiced by The Night Shift's Raymond Ochoa. Frances McDormand — who was part of the original cast — and Jeffrey Wright will voice Arlo's parents.

Marcus Scribner voices Buck, Arlo’s only sibling. New cast members include Steve Zahn as a pterodactyl and AJ Buckley, Anna Paquin, and Sam Elliott as T. rexes.

Even the little human buddy, cheekily named Spot, tugs on your heart's sleeve.

Spot is voiced by Jack Bright (Monsters University). As director Pete Sohn told Yahoo, “I’m trying to treat Spot in a very kind of animalistic way, where he doesn’t speak very much. He’s very feral.”
