I am a HUGE Disney Movie fan and I was thrilled when I saw the trailer to The Good Dinosaur. It just looked like an amazing movie and something I would enjoy with or without my little guy.
‘ “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. – Written by Pixar ‘
“A single kindness can change everything”
This statement can’t be more true for this movie or for life. Arlo is alone in the world. His family is far away and his father has passed, but he finds an unlikely friendship with a human, Spot. At first Arlo isn’t interested in Spot’s friendship but Spot sticks around despite Arlo telling him to leave.
Spot and Arlo talk about family here and it just made my heart hurt. I just wanted to cuddle them both and tell them everything would be okay.
They become friends and face their fears through out this movie. The battle with evil and take on storms. They continue to stick by each other’s side and work towards getting Arlo home to his mother and siblings.
Spot howls throughout the movie and someone finally returns the howl. They eventually meet and it becomes a very touching moment where Spot has to decide what he wants to do. Does he go with the other humans? Or does he continue his journey with Arlo?
Spot and Arlo’s friendship speaks volumes at this moment. They care about each other and it’s clear as day in this shot above. Spot has found more humans and needs to choose where he wants to go. Arlo could possibly be losing his new found friend.
This is just a glimpse into The Good Dinosaur. I apologize if I have given too much away but I can not express how much I love this movie. I cried, my heart ached, and I smiled with happy tears. I am truly a sucker for a great Disney movie and The Good Dinosaur has been knocked out of the ball park is you ask me!
Be sure to check out the extra’s on The Good Dinosaur. This DVD is packed with over 2 hours of amazing extra’s.
True Lies About Dinosaurs – This short clip talks about what they do and don’t know about real Dinosaurs. They separate the differences between real and made up Dinosaurs. It’s a short clip but very educational for children, even adults. It’s worth the watch.
Recyclosaurus – This was just a fun clip! The Pixar crew creates their own Dinosaurs out of unwanted items. The crew bring in items from home they no longer need but aren’t bad enough to through out. The crew picks through the table and find goodies to make their masterpiece!
His And Seek – Haha. This was a short promotional clip and it was just so cute!
There are just my favorite extra’s. However, that isn’t all. They have so many more like, The Filmmaker’s Journey, Every Part of The Dinosaur, Deleted Scenes, Dino Bites, and More! I am telling you, the extra’s on The Good Dinosaur are just fabulous.
Be sure to check out these awesome extra goodies!
