The Good Dinosaur
Director: Peter Sohn
Cast: Raymond Ochoa, Jack Bright, Sam Elliott, Anna Paquin, A.J. Buckley, Steve Zahn, Jeffrey Wright, Frances McDormand

A family of Apatosauruses farm their land and prepare for the coming winter. Arlo, the youngest of the three boys, doesn't have the strength or courage of his older brothers. When Arlo accidentally ends up far away from home, he must finally prove his mettle in order to return to his family. This Pixar movie is set in an alternate reality where dinosaurs avoided extinction and coexist with humans. This is a Disney production, so carnivores and herbivores live happily side by side, and nobody gets eaten. Although the central storyline of Arlo's personal growth is awfully formulaic, this is still an entertaining and visually stunning animation.
