The first real trailer for Disney-Pixar’s long-awaited new movie The Good Dinosaur is here, although I feel like it should really be titled The Really Lucky Dinosaur, seeing as it’s a “what if?” tale where a certain asteroid never hit Earth and wiped them all out.

As for the film’s scientific inaccuracy, well, besides the whole missing extinction event, I sincerely doubt that mammals would evolved in the exact same manner with dinosaurs continuing to fill all the environmental niches. But it’s not like people take kids to see Pixar movies for educational purposes. Instead, they take them to be entertained, kept quiet for about two hours, and hear the latest Randy Newman song about friendship. All of which I imagine The Good Dinosaur will deliver in spades.
