This marks the first year in nearly a decade that hasn’t seen the release of a Pixar animated feature. A big reason for that was due to the eighteen month delay of their proposed 2014 film “The Good Dinosaur”.
At the time of the delay, the film’s director Bob Peterson left the project and since then things have been dead quiet regarding the film. That is until today.
Actor John Lithgow did some voice work on the film a while back. In a new interview with Collider he confirms that due to the project being completely retooled, he will go in to record new dialogue some time in the next few weeks:
“I recorded the entire role in Good Dinosaur. They have now dismantled it and completely reimagined it, and it is a fantastic new story. So I’m gonna record again on it within the next month. Don’t worry. It’s coming and it’s gonna be better than I ever imagined… But me and Frannie McDormand, we’re still playing Momma and Poppa dinosaur”
It’s unknown how many of the other previously-confirmed voice cast such as Judy Greer, Neil Patrick Harris, Bill Hader and John Ratzenberger will return to re-record their dialogue.
