I’ll be posting more thoughts on the trailer over the next few hours, but here’s your chance to watch it a few times. For reference, that’s “Crystals” by Of Monsters and Men (a song we actually featured on the podcast a few months back).
The visuals. One of the few things Inside Out lacked in comparison to Monsters University was a hyper-realistic environment that could blow you away. But it’s clear that the team behind Good Dinosaur put the majority of their efforts into making this movie look beautiful, even if the character models are somewhat cartoony.
I’m amazed by how many chills this trailer managed to deliver (the human boy, Spot, facing down the viper was my favorite). Even though I’m still weirded out by getting two original Pixar features in a year, I’m starting to understand why this movie was delayed a year. They wanted it to be perfect.
