Some new info on Pixar's 2014 film The Good Dinosaur


It's been a bit since we last reported on Pixar's upcoming dinosaur film, which is about dinosaur society if they had not gone extinct. We shared the goofy temporary logo late last summer, and we also noted in December that the Disney CG film Frozen caused a shift in the release date of this Pixar film. (It's now scheduled for May 30, 2014.)

The new Pixar film is called The Good Dinosaur, and will be co-directed by Bob Peterson (co-director of Up) and Peter Sohn. Peterson, Sohn, and producer John Walker remained mum about the exact story details to 24 Frames, but they did reveal some themes of the film. "It's time to do a movie where you get to know the dinosaur, what it's really like to be a dinosaur and to be with a dinosaur," Peterson said. Peterson is reportedly writing the film sporadically on a laptop as inspiration strikes.

As for the film's title, 24 Frames writes the following:

Sohn said they are toying with the idea of what dinosaurs represent today -- something anachronistic or resistant to change. If there's a "good" dinosaur, after all, there have to be bad ones. "The title is deceptively simple," Sohn said. "It has more meaning than it seems."

Still no word on the role that pterodactyls (aka the best dinosaur) will play, or if anyone in the movie will be distantly related to Baby Sinclair.
