As we continue to recover from our Inside Out emotions, Pixar is impressing us again with a trailer for their second new film of 2015, The Good Dinosaur.
The first full-length Good Dinosaur trailer just debuted and will likely run in movie theaters this weekend with Fox’s Paper Towns. The 2 1/2 minute look at the animated film uses no dialogue to tell the story of Arlo (the dinosaur) and Spot (the boy). Instead we see a relationship build between the two characters as they discover the world together.
The Good Dinosaur is a boy-and-his-dog type story, but the roles are reversed: The dinosaur is the human and the boy is the dog. Remember, the story is set during the beginning of humanity in an alternate universe where the comet that knocked out the dinosaurs missed the earth. While the first teaser trailer for The Good Dinosaur presented a funnier side of the story, this trailer goes for the heart.
Watch the new Good Dinosaur trailer below:
“The Good Dinosaur asks the question: What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct?” reads the film’s synopsis. “Pixar Animation Studios takes you on an epic journey into the world of dinosaurs where an Apatosaurus named Arlo (voice of Raymond Ochoa) makes an unlikely human friend. While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of.”
The CGI in The Good Dinosaur looks gorgeous and the movie appears to pack a lot of heart. It opens in theaters this Thanksgiving.
It’s a busy week for movie trailers — We’re going to be seeing new previews of The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2 later this week!

Another winner from Pixar? Between the success of Inside Out and the resurgence of dinosaurs thanks to Jurassic World, Disney may have another huge hit on its hands later this year.
