Postersaurus: Three New 'Good Dinosaur' Posters Surface


Once again, new stuff from Pixar's next just keeps coming now that the film is less than two months away...

These three posters are from the UK, and one of them gives us a closer look at one of the film's more interesting elements...




Back when the film's full trailer came out, I thought the Shaman had the coolest character design of all the dinos in the film. The styracosaur has tons of critters on his horns and frill, and as you can see, this alternate universe's version of wildlife is quite different. Judging by the film's setting and the fact that apatosaurs were native to North America, I can only assume the film does take place in the North American wilderness. If so, notice all the tropical-looking birds? The saber-tooth beaver is also really cool, along with a shrimp-looking thing left horn next to the blue Kevin-like birds, the odd-looking lizards, and the fox with the long ears. I love all these creature designs, they go quite well with the arguably divisive cartoony dinos.

The marketing has been hinting at all these little things, and it's the element of the film that's fascinating me the most right now. So what if the meteor missed? It goes beyond that... What kind of wildlife would there be in a world where dinosaurs never went extinct. The possibilities are quite endless here, and it's good to see that the artists and story crew have taken advantage of that.

So that's what really caught my eye. The other posters? I like them. The character poster with a funny caption is nothing new in the world of animated movie marketing, but I wonder if we'll see more character posters surface after this. After all, we've got the other T-rexes, Arlo's family, pteranodons, and velociraptors which we haven't even seen yet.

Anyways, the film looks better and better. I've been anticipating this one like many others because, A) Pixar, and B) Dinosaurs. You didn't need anything else to sell me on it, really...

What say you?

  1. The ones I'm looking forward to are the raptors. Apparently they're supposed to "look like football players." Wonder what that's supposed to mean . . .
