From the innovative minds of Disney•Pixar comes a hilariously heartwarming adventure about the power of confronting and overcoming your fears and discovering who you are meant to be. 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?
In this epic journey into the world of dinosaurs, an apatosaurus named Arlo 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.

This is a darling little film and while it it isn’t over the top grand (think FROZEN) it’s quite a sweet little gem that I am so thrilled to have in our Disney collection. While the story line follows a lot of similar animated stories, it is unique in it’s own right, and I loved the characters and the relationships between them. The story line is a bit tough on the heart at times.(I cried. More than once. Pixar!!) You will find yourself emotionally invested in this film and prepare to have a lump in your throat during at least 4 scenes, maybe 5.
This movie is one that can be enjoyed by all ages, and I really think that it has a message for all ages as well. The animation is stunning and truthfully, such a visually beautiful film. Add this one to your collection, you won’t regret it!
Another thing that makes this DVD a trueDisney•Pixar gem is the fact that it contains an insane amount of bonus feature material! I talk to people all the time who didn’t even realize that their Disney movies HAD bonus features (Whaaaaa?) and I’m telling you, the bonus features are one of our favorite things about Disney•Pixar movies. So much great content there, and in this case, a LOT of bonus feature material!
