The making of Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur

Peter Sciretta at Slashfilm:

I?ll be completely honest ? the cartoony dinosaur designs in the posters and advertising did not excite me. It wasn?t until I really got to take in some of the movie that I fully understood the vision of this film, and how the cartoony character designs are used as a wonderful contrast to the almost photo real environments.

But all of that is for nothing if there isn?t a good story at the center of it all. And while I can?t be sure of that just yet, I can tell you that one of the scenes that was previewed made me cry, as only a Pixar film can.

Very cool story about the research and new workflow processes implemented by Pixar to make the movie. I mentioned it earlier this week when I posted the trailer (reposted below) that this is the first Pixar film in the last couple of years that I’m looking forward to.

Cartoony characters contrasting with a rich, vivid and more reality based environment has been a mainstay of animation design since the beginning – it’s going to be great to see it brought back!!
