Finally! A movie that isn’t a reboot, remake, or catastrophe (well, at least let’s hope). Pixar Animation Studios is bringing us The Good Dinosaur this Thanksgiving.

The film poses the question: What if the asteroid that destroyed all the dinosaurs did not, in fact, hit earth? What would life be like with dinos still chomping around the earth?

The official synopsis describes The Good Dinosaur as:

“An epic journey into the world of dinosaurs where an Apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend. While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of.”
