The Good Dinosaur trailer shows off Pixar's animation at its prettiest

Susana Polo is an entertainment editor at Polygon, specializing in pop culture and genre fare, with a primary expertise in comic books. Previously, she founded The Mary Sue.

The world of The Good Dinosaur is one in which the mass extinction that killed the dinosaurs never happened, and now humans and dinosaurs coexist.

That's self-evident this trailer and the brief teaser Pixar has put out for the upcoming film so far. What's less apparent, thanks to some clever cuts, is that in this boy-and-his-dog story, the boy is a dinosaur and the dog is a boy.

But who cares how this trailer disguises the fact that Arlo the dinosaur talks and his pet human Spot doesn't? The film still looks beautiful.

The next level of puzzles.
