'The Good Dinosaur' Voice Cast Announced

By Tim Callaway

Pixar's The Good Dinosaur
We now know a bit more about Pixar's fall release, The Good Dinosaur. Disney and Pixar have announced the voice cast (descriptions courtesy Walt Disney Studios Publicity):

Raymond Ochoa (NBC’s The Night Shift, TNT’s Rizzoli & Isles, Disney’s A Christmas Carol) provides the voice of an Apatosaurus named Arlo.

Jeffrey Wright (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - parts I & II, HBO's Boardwalk Empire) was tapped as the voice of Poppa, Arlo’s father.

Steve Zahn (Captain Fantastic, Ridiculous Six, Rescue Dawn, Mad Dogs) provides the voice of a pterodactyl named Thunderclap.

A.J. Buckley (TNT’s Murder in the First, FX’s Justified) voices a T-Rex called Nash.

Anna Paquin (HBO’s True Blood) is the voice of T-Rex Ramsey.

Sam Elliott (FX's Justified, I’ll See You In My Dreams, Grandma) was called on as the voice of a tough T-Rex named Butch.

Frances McDormand (HBO's Olive Kitteridge, Fargo) was tapped as the voice of Momma, Arlo’s mother.

Marcus Scribner (ABC’s black•ish) voices Arlo's brother Buck.

Jack Bright (Monsters University) provides the voice of Arlo’s unlikely human friend, Spot.

This is the second time Pixar has announced The Good Dinosar's voice cast. Originally, Neil Patrick Harris, Bill Hader and John Lithgow were among the voice talents attached to the project, but story and script changes, not to mention a new director brought in mid-production, caused delays--and changes in the cast. Only Frances McDormand remains from the original cast.

The Good Dinosaur playfully speculates what might have happened if an asteroid hadn't wiped out the dinosaurs millions of years ago. The film is directed by Peter Sohn and opens in the U.S. on November 25, 2015.
