Disney movies always have a way to make you laugh, cry, and be surprised. I recently watched The Good Dinosaur, Disney’s latest movie, and the story tells of Arlo, his parents, and his two siblings and how the dinosaurs were not taken out by the asteroids. There was a big storm and Arlo got washed down the river and ended up miles away from home. As he journeys his way home, he meets a boy who he named Spot. when these two venture to get Arlo back to his family they create an amazing friendship.
The Good Dinosaur is Pixar’s first fossil movie, there was a lot of promotion before this movie came out, but, in my opinion, the movie didn’t live up to the hype. it was a good movie but Frozen didn’t have as much hype as this movie did and Frozen was such a huge success. The Good Dinosaur only made $266 million worldwide. This is also Pixar’s first movie that didn’t do so well in the box office.
Pixar has made tons of extremely successful movies such as Inside Out (2015), Monsters University (2013), Brave (2012), all of the Toy Story movies, along with the ever popular Incredibles (2004), Cars (2006) and Finding Nemo (2003). So for Pixar to have a flop movie was very shocking. It wasn’t bad, but they promoted the movie so much that it didn’t reach the standards I was hoping for.
I believe Pixar knew this movie wouldn’t be a huge success so they promoted the movie a lot to get a high box office number. If they would have spent more time on the script and the story line, then I believe the movie would have had more success. Pixar has amazing writers and producers; maybe next time they will find a way to make a movie more entertaining.
