Pixar is giving me stomach pains; they’re making me nervous.
Their newest film, The Good Dinosaur, will be released on Nov. 25. I know nothing about the film and it is coming out in less than three months.
Okay, I know the movie is about a boy and a dinosaur set in prehistoric times. But besides that, I know nothing.
Pixar, why are you hiding so much information from us? Months (many months) before Inside Out was released this summer, I had a great idea of what the plot would be about. With The Good Dinosaur, I feel like I’ve been trapped in a cave, guarded by velociraptor refusing to give me answers.
In all honesty, the film’s trailer presents a pretty basic plotline: a story of a friendship between animal and man. Pixar is hiding everything else for one of two reasons: one, they want audiences to be surprised by the super intricate and emotional story yet to be revealed, or two, that emotional journey is non-existent (extinct).
Pixar being Pixar, they probably are waiting to reveal a masterpiece. If that is the case, this will be Pixar best year yet when the success of Inside Out is considered.
But still, I am nervous. I hope the T-Rex doesn’t sense the discomfort in my tone; they thrive on that stuff.
