Disney and Pixar bring us a new fabulous film that will speak volumes to all of us. I can’t wait for my entire family to watch it because it is a movie not to miss! You got a sneak peek with the magnificent red carpet event and the candid interview with Director Sohn and Producer Ream. As this heartwarming film hits the screen, I am looking forward to these 3 Things Kids Will Learn From The Good Dinosaur:
Before I tell you about those 3 things, here is The Good Dinosaur’s official boilerplate:
“The Good Dinosaur” asks the question: What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? Pixar Animation Studios takes you on an epic journey into the world of dinosaurs where an Apatosaurus named Arlo (voice of Raymond Ochoa) 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. Directed by Peter Sohn and produced by Denise Ream (“Cars 2”), Disney•Pixar’s “The Good Dinosaur” opens in theaters on Nov. 25, 2015.
3 Things Kids Will Learn From The Good Dinosaur
The Good Dinosaur comes with all the values we are used to from Disney-Pixar. There is nothing like teaching kids while they are enjoying themselves. So, I thank The Good Dinosaur for 3 great important lessons and takeaways:
- Family: Arlo reminds us of the importance of family. The family love shared on screen, and Arlo’s quest to get home just reinforce all the goodness that family is in a powerful way.
- Courage, Bravery and Conquering our Fears: are a central theme in the movie. As our Dino faces different moments and fights his battles it will be clear that we can all do it if we can! It is time to be fierce, overcome and prevail!
- Friendship: This connects so well with all the anti-bullying campaigns going around. The movie screams “don’t judge a book by its cover” and also the idea of giving everyone second chances or more are very prevalent. As we see a friendship develop and blossom between Arlo and Spot we all can appreciate the uniqueness and greatness in those around us and those yet to make friends with 🙂
A A fourth point I would add here is re-ignite curiosity on dinosaurs and getting our inner paleontologist out there! Lesson one here is that Arlo is not a Brontosaurus but and Apatosaurus. What is the difference? ahhhhh time to investigate friends 🙂
Get ready to enjoy a beautiful story that will charm you as you root for Arlo in his quest set in amazing animation scenery and fabulous music. Remember starting today you must go watch The Good Dinosaur with your family for an unforgettable experience! Let me know if you have more lessons from the film to add to this list, please.
