The Good Dinosaur Makes the “Coming of Age” Story Brand New Again

At first glance, The Good Dinosaur looks weird as hell, even by Pixar standards. It’s the story of an alternate world where the dinosaurs never went extinct, and it’s a “boy and his dog” story where the “boy” is an apatosaurus and the “dog” is a human child named Spot.
