The voice cast for Pixar's The Good Dinosaur was looking pretty awesome. That is until practically the entire voice cast was dropped and replaced.
The cast which previously included Reese Witherspoon, Bill Hader, John Lithgow, Neil Patrick Harris, Judy Greer, Lucas Leff, and Frances McDormand has been completely dropped with the exception of McDormand. The new voice cast is as follows:
Raymond Ochoa as Arlo, the Apatosaurus
Jeffrey Wright as Poppa, Arlo's father
Steve Zahn as Thunderclap, the Pterodactyl
AJ Buckley as Nash, a T-Rex
Anna Paquin as Ramsey, a T-Rex
Sam Elliott as Butch, a T-Rex
Frances McDormand as Momma, Arlo's mother
Marcus Scribner as Buck, Arlo's brother
Jack Bright as Spot, Arlo's human friend
This marks a first time that Pixar has completed a film and recorded all of the dialogue and then re-recorded with a brand new cast. This would also make sense as to why the teaser trailer had absolutely no dialogue in it. This also came after Pixar all but scrapped The Good Dinosaur entirely. We were originally supposed to get the movie last year, but when the studio delayed it to revamp the entire story it resulted in no 2014 Pixar release and two releases for 2015.
I was really excited for The Good Dinosaur until the shit hit the fan... and until seeing the teaser. To me, it looks very subpar for Pixar. The dinosaurs look overly cartoonish and I think dropping the voice cast for, in my opinion, bad voices is a mistake.
