Until today, it appears the voice cast for Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur has undergone some dramatic changes. The film has been through some ups and downs since 2013 when the original cast was announced and Bob Petersen was aboard to direct with Judy Greer, John Lithgow, Frances McDormand, Bill Hader, Neil Patrick Harris and Lucas Neff providing the voice cast and Neff voicing the lead Apatosaurus Arlo. Well, it would appear McDormand is the only one left from that group as the official cast was just announced.
It will, in fact, be Raymond Ochoa (NBC’s “The Night Shift”) providing the voice of the Apatosaurus Arlo along with Jeffrey Wright (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2) voicing Arlo’s father, Poppa, and McDormand voicing his mother, Momma.
Steve Zahn (Ridiculous Six) provides the voice of a pterodactyl named Thunderclap, AJ Buckley (TNT’s “Murder in the First”) voices a T-Rex called Nash, Anna Paquin (HBO’s “True Blood”) is the voice of T-Rex Ramsey, Sam Elliott (FX’s “Justified”) voices a tough T-Rex named Butch, , Marcus Scribner (ABC’s “blackâ€¢ish”) voices Arlo’s brother Buck and Jack Bright (Monsters University) provides the voice of Arlo’s unlikely human friend, Spot.
Here’s the official synopsis:
The Good Dinosaur asks the generations-old question: What if the cataclysmic asteroid that forever changed life on Earth actually missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? In theaters November 25, 2015, the film is a humorous and exciting original story about Arlo, a lively 70-foot-tall teenage Apatosaurus with a big heart. After a traumatic event rattles Arlo’s tranquil community, he sets out on a quest to restore peace, gaining an unlikely companion along the way–a young human boy named Spot.
The Good Dinosaur hits theaters on Nov. 25, you can watch the first trailer below, which will most certainly be in front of the upcoming Inside Out, hitting theaters next Friday, June 19.
