A little back story on me and the dinosaurs. Growing up, The Land Before Time was one of my favorite non-Disney films. Then, in junior high it all changed. I was no longer a fan of dinosaurs, thanks to my traumatizing experience watching Jurassic Park; I was thoroughly convinced a velociraptor would take the pleasure of randomly attacking me in the middle of the night.
I know, some imagination, huh?
Needless to say, now that we are back to cutesy looking dinosaurs and meaningful storylines (besides "there's a dinosaur: R-U-N), I am excited to be back in the dino game. :)
A SINGLE MOMENT CAN CHANGE HISTORY...
So, what exactly would happen if dinosaurs were never extinct and lived amongst humans?
This is the story of the an Apatosaurus dinosaur named Arlo (voiced by Raymond Ochoa) and a cute little human friend that he meets along the way of his journey to becoming brave.
I'm also excited to share that the Director, Peter Sohn, was also the voice of "Squishy" from Monsters University, my son will be thrilled about that. The producer, Denise Ream, also produced "Cars 2" and was an associate producer for Pixar's "Up."
FACE YOUR FEARS
If there's one thing that my husband and I really hope to teach and live by example for our kids, it's to face our fears. In life, we will be presented with obstacles and some of them might scare us; we might feel helpless or like there's no way around them. But teaching them that it's okay to have fear, but to face it and look it in the eyes and KEEP GOING, that's when we become brave. I'm really excited to have another Disney•Pixar film that reinforces this mindset.
Don't forget to mark your calendars for November 25, 2015, when The Good Dinosaur is released!
What do you think about the trailer? Are you just as excited as I am, to see this cute little dino take over the silver screen? :)
