Disney and Pixar are looking forward to The Good Dinosaur being the good turkey in bringing in fortune on Thanksgiving this year.
Thanksgiving is the time of the year when all the family members get together and give thanks for the blessings they have received. One of those blessings is going out to theaters and watching the latest Disney animation movie.

For the past few years, Disney had proudly presented “Toy Story 2,” “Tangled,” “A Bug’s Life,” the live-action “101 Dalmations” and 2013’s “Frozen,” the holiday record-holder with a five-day debut gross of $93.5 million. The holiday is not complete without a Disney hit.
This year hoping to take the Thanksgiving moviegoers with a stride is The Good Dinosaur. The Good Dinosaur opened in previews Tuesday night in more than 3,700 theaters, roughly 75 percent of which will offer 3D shows projecting a $60 million five-day haul, according to The Wrap.
Vital signs are solid for “The Good Dinosaur,” but they don’t match the advance ticket sales, social media buzz and reviews of this past summer’s Pixar release, “Inside Out.”
The Good Dinosaur took a long way to get to Wednesday’s coming-out party. The production for the movie began in 2009 with Bob Peterson and Peter Sohn as co-directors and a targeted Thanksgiving 2013 release.
That date was pushed ahead one year in 2012, and the following year, story problems prompted Pixar President Ed Catmull to make Sohn the director and bring in Denise Ream as producer.
Disney pushed the movie to its current date, giving Pixar two releases in one year for the first time. Five months ago, a new voice cast was announced with Raymond Ochoa, Jack Bright, Sam Elliott, Anna Paquin, A. J. Buckley, Steve Zahn, Frances McDormand and Jeffrey Wright.
