The Good Dinosaur (November 23) – The dinosaur apocalypse never happened and Arlo the Apatosaurus is separated from his family. On his way home, he encounters a human boy, who he adopts and names Spot. This one’s going to be another Pixar tearjerker – according to Wired.com, a clip shown at this year’s D23 Expo shows Arlo bonding with Spot over the word “family,” in which Arlo sets up a series of sticks to represent his family members. Spot sets up his own sticks – and knocks them over, burying them to signify his family’s deaths. “We’re outing everything we have into making and adventurous and emotional story,” says director Peter Sohn.
