(2015) (voices of Raymond Ochoa, Jeffrey Wright) (PG)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Animated Action: When an asteroid narrowly misses prehistoric Earth, a dinosaur and a human form an unlikely bond.
- In an alternate Earth where an asteroid did not strike the planet 65 million years ago, dinosaurs still exist and are the dominant species. They speak, live in houses, and have cultivated such skills as farming. Dinosaurs Henry (voice of JEFFREY WRIGHT) and Momma (voice of FRANCES McDORMAND) are about to become parents and welcome the hatching of their three eggs. The runt of this litter is Arlo (voice of RAYMOND OCHOA), who is born scared and hesitant.
Over the years, Henry tries to teach his boy courage and self-reliance and to make his mark in the world. When a savage human boy named Spot (voice of JACK BRIGHT) keeps stealing their food, Henry challenges Arlo to set a trap and then beat to death the ensnared Spot. Arlo can't do it and instead sets Spot free. Henry implores Arlo to chase after him. They do, but a surprise flash floor carries Henry off to his death.
Days later, Arlo finds Spot back and stealing from his family again and chases him to the nearby river where he is also carried off far away. Determined to get back to his family, Arlo reluctantly teams up with Spot and braves a bunch of evil pterodactyls led by Thunderclap (voice of STEVE ZAHN) and gets help from a gruff T-Rex named Butch (voice of SAM ELLIOTT) and his kids Nash (voice of A.J. BUCKLEY) and Ramsey (voice of ANNA PAQUIN).
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Yes. It's animated, it's all about dinosaurs, and it's Pixar. 'Nuff said.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
- For peril, action, and thematic elements.
