Arlo meets quite a few interesting personalities on his journey. Meet them in our The Good Dinosaur characters guide!
Disney•Pixar already gave us one feature film this year with the critically-acclaimed Inside Out. Now, for the first time ever, the animation studio is releasing a second film in the same year. The Good Dinosaur, directed by Peter Sohn and produced by Denise Ream, hits theaters November 25. To help everyone get prepared for the story of Arlo the apatosaurus and his incredible world, we’ve assembled a special The Good Dinosaur characters guide. Check it out in the gallery viewer below!
ComingSoon.net had the opportunity to visit Pixar Animation Studios in Emeryville, California last week and, after you take a look a look at The Good Dinosaur characters, be sure to check out our behind the scenes look what went into making the animated feature. Also, if you haven’t already seen it, be sure to check out the recently-released second The Good Dinosaur trailer.
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 (voice of Raymond Ochoa; “The Night Shift,” “Rizzoli & Isles”) 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 film’s voice cast will also include Jeffrey Wright (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay), Steve Zahn (“Treme,” Saving Silverman), AJ Buckley (“Murder in the First,” “Justified”), Anna Paquin (“True Blood,” “X-Men”), Sam Elliot (“Justified,” The Big Lebowski). Frances McDormand (“Olive Kitteridge,” Fargo), Marcus Scribner (“black•ish”), and Jack Bright (Monsters University).
There are a few more The Good Dinosaur characters that haven’t yet had official images released. At this year’s D23 Expo, Disney fans got an early look at Arlo’s other family members, including Arlo’s Momma and his siblings, Buck and Libby.
A loving wife and mother, Momma (Frances McDormand) is smart and quick-witted. She’s a hard worker with a lot of love for her family, and she keeps her children and their farm in order. Her quiet strength is the backbone of the family.
Buck (Marcus Scribner), meanwhile, is Arlo’s brother. They’re the same age, but Buck is bigger, stronger and a little rambunctious. He likes to tease his fearful brother as often as he can—and Arlo is an easy target. Buck’s size, strength and confidence allow him to do things that Arlo can’t imagine doing—like ripping a tree out of the ground with his teeth.
Libby, finally, is Arlo’s sister and is a capable and willful girl who can plow a mean field. The little trickster has a great sense of humor, and loves playing silly pranks on her family. The actress voicing Libby has not yet been revealed.
