The Good Dinosaur: signaling the downfall of Pixar?

While Pixar’s latest film Inside Out may have received near unanimous praise from both audiences at $40.3 million on its opening weekend and critics alike, their next project The Good Dinosaur is reported to be having problems. With almost the whole cast, the composer, the director, and even the color of the main character Arlo’s eyes replaced mere months before the film’s scheduled debut in November 2015 which was also pushed back from May 2014, it would be easy to question the business practices of Pixar itself. Could it be then that the studio’s success with Inside Out was only a fluke and that the troubled production of The Good Dinosaur is the true foreshadowing of Pixar’s future existence instead?

  • I disagree. I think The Good Dinosaur looks like it's going to be good. I think the departure of the directors would be due to other reasons. – SpectreWriter 8 years ago
  • It might be too early to decide on whether The Good Dinosaur will be the downfall of Pixar. Aside from the first teaser, there is only one trailer out for the movie, and there are films that have gone through production problems and turned out decent, such as Brave which ran into similar problems as The Good Dinosaur. Perhaps instead of focusing on whether The Good Dinosaur will be the end of Pixar or if Inside Out was a fluke, you could go through and detail the changes the movie has gone through and perhaps offer your insight as to how you think this will affect the movie. – Seth Childers 8 years ago
