We FINALLY have something! Been looking forward to this for a while and it's been in and out of production for SO long now. Neil Patrick Harris is the lead voice in this!



Are you guys excited?

So can't wait for this. Having two Pixar films released this year makes up for having none released last year

I have to say it looks a bit basic by Pixar's standards.

Agreed. It looks like it's Disney's best impersonation of the studios that released 'House Of Magic' et al. sad.gif I'm majorly disappointed with the animation, but I think it looks really good, story wise. It looks nothing like 'Inside Out', but we shall see!

It looks really basic, almost as if it aiming for 3 year olds.

Hope we get to hear more about this as release is getting closer, at the moment I just think the goofy art style on the realistic backgrounds is jarring and unusual and from the trailer I just didn't get any storyline from it, really hoping it'll be good because Pixar mainly are but I just don't get this yet.

I hope this is better than it looks - It would be a great shame is Pixar took another dip in quality after such a huge return to form with 'Inside Out'

It seems that Neil Patrick-Harris is no longer a part of this (odd :\)

But here's the new trailer



Although it's still slightly let down by the basic animation (by Pixar's standards), I am a lot more optimistic about this now. Looking forward to it and it looks like it has a hell of a lot of heart <3

Perhaps the most beautiful animation film of all time. The art style has massively grown on me and the goofy on realistic seemed to have quite a charm to it in the end. I feel like this'll maybe go down as an iconic type of animation that The Good Dinosaur was the founder of. There are some scenes especially where the water just looks SPECTACULAR, and the whole scope of the scenery really made you understand how far away Arlo was.

It had charm, likeable characters, a good story and nice art but it's not one of Pixar's best for me, the story was pretty much a total rehash of The Lion King (from dead dad, to ghost dad to being reunited with family and earning your place). I also wish it had more laughter moments, Inside Out had a lot of good jokes whereas I didn't realise laugh at this outside of the hole mole creature things already seen in the trailer. Saying that, I did like some of the quirks like how there would be Apatosaurus farming families and how they go about their daily jobs.

Overall, I enjoyed the film and it hit all the right emotional spots but Inside Out was a 100x more original and just overall stronger.

feel like this is gonna flop/suffer just because inside out was such a critical/commercial hit and it's out so soon after

Oh yeah I forgot some more Lion King parallels too (son comes back and gets confused for father [but this time they look nothing alike so it seems a bit odd], the hyenas are basically the same in this but just birds, even little subtle hints like small character gets bumped around when running in a stampede of wildebeest-like creatures.)


I feel like I'd have enjoyed this way more if Lion King hadn't done it first even though I'd still give this 9/10.

Got to give credit for the absolutely stunning animation. The setting looked so realistic that I had to ponder if it was just the characters that were animated (I'm still not convinced!)

There were some sweet moments, the ending, the stick families in the sand but the story didn't majorly excite me and it felt like one of the characters not being able to have dialogue (that we understand - the kid) might have held it back, at least for me. It definitely felt 'younger'/less adult-friendly than previous Pixar efforts that it doesn't live up to.

Sanjay's Super Team had nothing on Lava either tongue.gif.

Didn't this have massive behind the scenes issues? Looks good but will obviously not be a patch on Inside Out.

This is really bad. The landscape animation is undeniably impressive but it's so photo-realistic it almost becomes redundant - what's the point in animation if it just looks the same as reality? The narrative is so pedestrian and unimaginative, and the concept itself provided so many avenues for an intriguing story so to see it go down the tired 'journey' route - as already discussed in the thread - is so disappointing.

LOVED Sanjay's Super Team however - some gorgeous animation (the wide-eyed character design not withstanding) and great to see such a clearly personal project getting this platform. Could easily have been a full feature and OH, how I wish it had been. (I hated Lava and loved Inside Out, so apparently I'm only allowed to like either the short or the feature. laugh.gif )

I went in with pretty low expectations but it did outdo those at times. It took me ages to get into it - the characters i couldn't warm to, the setting while incredible visually, lacked warmth and it just seemed too seen-it-before. I did however around the half-way mark get swept up in it and by the end i'd had tears welling up twice (which isn't a lot for Pixar's standards but it was something!). The ending was beautifully done but all-in-all i found it too predictable a film and certainly the first in ages that Pixar have done that has been aimed almost exclusively at a very young audience.

I'm glad we got it, and it's not my least favourite Pixar film to date but it was pretty mediocre for their standards.

I kind of echo the above posts really. I liked the UK trailer but the first US one made it look like the film's going to be a little childish and boring sad.gif

Absolutely adored this, so cute and beautiful and I cried so much at one part!
