New Trailer for Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur Leans Heavily on “You Will Cry” Music



This is the first Pixar trailer in a long time that I’m just really, really not into. Kid looks like he came out of The Croods, and sentimentality seems preemptively cranked to the max.

Plus I think it’s time to declare a moratorium on scenes where characters bond due to being surrounded by a bunch of pretty glowing things in the air. It is officially now a cliche.

But maybe I’m just cranky. How do you like it?
