Imagine if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct. That’s the premise behind Disney•ŸPixar’s epic adventure, “The Good Dinosaur,” coming to theaters this Thanksgiving.

Beginning October 16, guests visiting Disney Parks will be able to catch a preview of scenes from “The Good Dinosaur” in sneak peeks planned for Disney California Adventure park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

At Disney California Adventure park, “The Good Dinosaur” preview will be presented at the Bug’s Life Theater with special in-theater effects. Guests at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will get to see this advance look at clips from the film, as part of the One Man’s Dream attraction on Mickey Avenue.

In “The Good Dinosaur,” Pixar Animation Studios takes you on an epic journey into the world of dinosaurs, where an Apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend. While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of.

Directed by Peter Sohn (“Partly Cloudy”) and produced by Denise Ream (“Cars 2”), DisneyŸ•Pixar’s “The Good Dinosaur” opens in theaters on November 25, 2015.


  • Exciting news!!! Can’t wait to preview.

  • The film in One Man’s Dream is an important part of the experience. It is disappointing that is being temporarily removed for a preview. Why can’t both play, or the preview go in the former Drew Carey theater like other recent previews?

  • Too bad! We love It’s Tough To Be a Bug and will be sad to miss it while we are on our family vacation. Phooey!!!

  • Sweet! I’m really looking forward to the movie.

  • How long will the sneak peek of “The Good Dinosaur” be at the Bug’s Life Theater? Will “It’s Tough to be a Bug!” be back?

    I’m really excited to see the sneak peek and the movie! :)

    • Kimberly – At Disney California Adventure, the sneak peek will run through December 13, 2015. “It’s Tough to be a Bug” is expected to reopen once the preview is done.

  • Are these clips going to be shown inside the Walt Disney Theater or in other spots inside the One Man’s Dream attraction? Thank you

    • Yulady – The sneak peek of “The Good Dinosaur” will be playing in the theater through December 4, and the regular One Man’s Dream finale film will return to that space December 5… just in time for Walt Disney’s birthday! :-)
