Set in a world in which the cataclysmic asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs had actually missed Earth and let them roam in peace, it's the tale of young Arlo (Ochoa), an apatosaurus who gets separated from his family and who teams up with mutt-like human boy Spot (Bright.) Debut director Sohn doesn't quite lift it to Pixar's heights but his voice work steals the show in this likeable kids' adventure.

What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? Luckily for young Arlo the Apatosaurus, his parents and his two siblings, the mighty dinosaurs were not wiped out 65 million years ago.

When a rainstorm washes poor Arlo downriver, he ends up bruised, battered and miles away from home. Good fortune shines on the frightened dino when he meets Spot, a Neanderthal boy who offers his help and friendship. Together, the unlikely duo embark on an epic adventure to reunite Arlo with his beloved family.

"Breathtaking visuals meet heartbreaking reality in Pixar's emotional boy-meets-dinosaur adventure." The Telegraph ★★★★
