Millions of years ago an asteroid 6 miles wide destroyed every dinosaur on earth, But what if… Woosh…it passed earth right on by and the dinosaurs still remained in the circle of life? What would life be like? Would man still be the dominate force or would dinosaurs become the evolving species?
“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? Pixar Animation Studios takes you on an epic journey into the world of dinosaurs where 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. The Good Dinosaur
After Arlo is separated from his pack, he sets out on a journey to find his way back. While finding his way in a strange land, Arlo finds a human. He doesn’t talk much and is a little “wild” but Arlo keeps him and calls him Spot. The story mirrors the theme of “a boy and his dog.” However, unlike the Flintstones where Dino the dinosaur is the dog, The Good Dinosaur switches things around and makes the human the dog and Arlo, the dinosaur, the boy. Who knows, if the asteroid never hit perhaps we would be sitting in purses, drinking from bowls and using the great outdoors as natures outhouse.

The Good Dinosaur will hit theaters November 25th, 2015.
