Known Trivia

  • The Good Dinosaur (2015) had a lot of production issues. The film was in production for six years and it suffered from creative differences, story problems, Pixar multitasking between film productions, and a quality slump Pixar suffered from Cars 2 (2011) to Monsters University (2013). Director Bob Peterson, was removed from the project in the summer of 2013, just under a year before the film’s original release date in May 2014. Peterson moved on to another project, while John Lasseter, Lee Unkrich, Mark Andrews, and Peter Sohn stepped in temporarily to work on various sections of the film. In November 2013, due to further delays, Pixar laid off 67 employees of its 1,200-person workforce, following the closure of its satellite studio in Canada a month before, when about 80 employees had been laid off, officially to refocus Pixar’s efforts at its main headquarters. “For Pixar it was a dramatic event,” said Jim Morris, the studio’s general manager and executive vice president of production. “It was tough on the company. Most studios would have said, ‘The movie’s fine. It’s not bad.’ And it wasn’t bad; it just wasn’t great. We wanted to have a great movie.” On October 21, 2014, Peter Sohn was officially named the new director. The story was then reworked, and some major changes included lowering the age of the protagonist and adding the concept of nature itself being the main antagonist. While John Lithgow still remained cast as Poppa in the film (he would later be replaced), he acknowledged the fantastic changes in the script and said that “[The film’s] gonna be better than I ever imagined.” 57 of 57 found this interesting Interesting?

  • This film was originally directed by Bob Peterson and set for release on May 30, 2014, but Peterson had trouble getting the third act right, so he was taken off the film and it was pushed back to November 25, 2015, the intended release date of Finding Dory (2016), in order to give it more time; Finding Dory (2016) was then pushed back to June 17, 2016. Peterson has since gone on to do a different film for Pixar while Denise Ream replaced John Walker as producer, and, on October 21, 2014, Peter Sohn was officially named the new director. The story was then reworked, and some major changes included scrapping the idea of dinosaurs being farmers and adding the concept of nature itself being the main antagonist. 65 of 67 found this interesting Interesting?
