Di­nosaurs rule, OK?

CityPress - - Trending -

If a me­teor hadn’t hit Earth and wiped out the di­nosaurs, would we be liv­ing hap­pily along­side them to­day? I fear we’d be lunch, ex­cept when such an alternate history is penned by Pixar.

Un­der the an­i­ma­tion stu­dio’s guidance, di­nosaurs are given names, feel­ings and am­bi­tions and the hu­mans are just an­other an­i­mal run­ning around. Into this uni­verse comes the tale of a di­nosaur in search of his place in the world and the hu­man child who be­comes his loyal pet/com­pan­ion.

The Good Di­nosaur is much an­tic­i­pated by the un­der-10 crowd and their par­ents, who are near­ing the bore­dom end of the school hol­i­days, and it will be snapped up grate­fully.

With the voices of Frances McDor­mand, Jef­frey Wright, Steve Zahn and Anna Paquin, the gen­eral con­sen­sus is that it en­ter­tains “even if it’s not as Pixar per­fect as we’ve come to ex­pect”, says The Stan­dard’s Matt Neal.
