New Details On Upcoming Pixar & Disney Animated Movies Revealed

Disney-Pixar released the first extended look at its upcoming animated film, The Good Dinosaur, which imagines a world in which the asteroid that's believed to have killed the dinosaurs actually missed Earth.

The trailer sets up the universe with a humorous scene in which the dinosaurs watch impassively as the asteroid whizzes by, changing the course of history. The Good Dinosaur centers around a lost dinosaur that meets an orphaned boy.

At Cannes Pixar's chief creative officer John Lassetersaid of the film, "This is a boy and a dog story, but the roles are reversed."
