Pixar released their second trailer for The Good Dinosaur yesterday and I am already planning to see it alone so I can openly cry. I’m not one to anticipate Pixar releases, but after two trailers I am already changing my tune.
This time around we’re given a better glimpse at the friendship between the dinosaur and the human boy who cross each other’s paths in a world where dinosaurs never went extinct. The trailer reminds me of Pixar’s shorts. There’s no dialogue and yet, you find yourself hit with a wave of emotion. The images are absolutely beautiful and the story is simply told. Maybe it’s so good because we all know what it’s like to be lonely and what it’s like to need a friend.
With its release set for Thanksgiving 2015, The Good Dinosaur looks to be another amazing feat by Pixar. I swear these people feed off of a copy of my diary from when I was 8.
Take a look at the trailer below and tell me that this doesn’t pull on your heartstrings!
