The Magic of PIXAR Lives Through Their Friendships On Big Screen
With the release of the Good Dinosaur coming up on a Big Screen, there are a lot of memories and experiences that play in my head. It is hard to believe that for the past 20 years PIXAR has been the ultimate creative hurricane of ideas and thoughts that came to life through their animation masterpieces.
Just take the legendary Toy Story. I have their full collection and hundreds of hours of watching with my kiddos. It was the first movie ever we allowed our toddler to watch on TV. And he fell in love with Woody and Buzz and all the team of toys who taught him a ton and showed him how to care and make good friendships that last.
To Celebrate the friendships and relationships PIXAR has created in their 20 years of creativity, their team has put together a video, a very teary featurette that will take you for a spin in emotion and feeling and good memories you have with all the PIXAR characters.
ALTERNATE UNIVERSE – In the world of “The Good Dinosaur,” where dinosaurs never became extinct, but instead evolved, herbivores—like Arlo’s Apatosaurus family — became farmers, and carnivores— like the T-Rexes— became ranchers.
WELL-GROOMED – Butch, the tough T-Rex Arlo encounters on his journey, sports a nod to the actor who provides his voice, Sam Elliott. According to supervising animator Mike Venturini, when Butch grins, his big white teeth resemble Elliott’s signature moustache.
Filmmakers looked at classic movie cowboys like characters portrayed by Clint Eastwood and Jack Palance to help inspire Butch’s physical look and performance.
RIDE ‘EM, COWBOY – Since the T-Rexes featured in “The Good Dinosaur” are ranchers, filmmakers wanted to give them the look of a true cowboy. When they’re running, their lower bodies mimic that of galloping horses, while their upper bodies have the feel of the riding cowboy.
