The latest from Disney-Pixar, The Good Dinosaur is now out on Blu-Ray/DVD and HD Digital! It’s such a sweet adventure about the power of confronting your fears and discovering who you are meant to be. In this all-bo household, you can’t go wrong with a good dinosaur show. So needless to say, this one was a big hit! One thing we love to do is have themed family movie nights and The Good Dinosaur is PERFECT for that – especially if you have dino-loving kids.

Head to the store or order your copy of The Good Dinosaur !You’ll Find some fun bonus features on the Blu-Ray as well! Recently, my boys have had a lot of fun with bonus features on our discs and they LOVED the ones here (again, dinosaurs!!).
- THEATRICAL SHORT – Sanjay’s Super Team – Sanjay loves the world of cartoons and comics, while his father tries to draw him into his Hindu traditions. Reluctance quickly turns into awe-inspiring adventure as the boy embarks on an amazing journey, returning with a new perspective they can both embrace.
- TRUE LIES ABOUT DINOSAURS – We know – it’s preposterous to think Apatosaurs spoke English. Learn more about what separates the fictional dinosaurs of “The Good Dinosaur“ from what scientists know about real dinosaurs. (As a former science teacher, I LOVE LOVE LOVE that they included this!!!)
- RECYCLOSAURUS – Pixar takes creative competition seriously. Maybe a little too seriously. Watch as “The Good Dinosaur” crew competes to see which department can create the best dinosaur ever…using only discarded items from the studio’s “free table.” (This one was REALLY fun! As someone who has had the pleasure of visiting Pixar Studios, I will say it’s SO fun to see the behind-the-scenes there and all the creativity that abounds!)
- THE FILMMAKERS’ JOURNEY – Finding your way from an idea to a film takes a lot of exploration. Director Peter Sohn and his fellow filmmakers talk about the challenging, inspiring, and unexpectedly emotional experience of making “The Good Dinosaur”.
- EVERY PART OF THE DINOSAUR – The filmmakers talk about the special animation challenges of “The Good Dinosaur” – including figuring out how to animate a dinosaur who’s really a boy, and a boy who’s got the spirit of a dog.
- FOLLOWING THE T-REX TRAIL – Follow the filmmakers as they travel to a working cattle ranch and meet the McKays, a close-knit family whose work ethic, generosity, and stories inspired the T-Rex ranchers of the film.
- DINO BITES – Montage of original animated pieces produced to promote “The Good Dinosaur.
- DELETED SCENES and more!
So fun! What dinosaur activity would your kids like to do first?
