Last night Pixar’s new film The Good Dinosaur had its premiere in Los Angeles. We invited a Pixar mega-fan to send us his personal report from the premiere:
“The premiere was wonderful, and it was a memorable evening for the film’s director Pete Sohn.”
“But it was an even more memorable evening for me…John Lasseter.”
“It was fun to see intimate conversations, like this one that Pete is having with ‘Good Dino’ voice actors A. J. Buckley and Raymond Ochoa.”
“Guys, is there room for me in here?”
“Let’s get a photo, A. J.”
“O.K., can I have a hug, too?”
“Hey Pete, let’s get a photo of us with your film’s producer Denise Ream!”
“That was fun, but now let’s just get one of me by myself.”
“OMIGOD….GROUP PHOTO…GROUP PHOTO!”
“Thanks for letting me be in this one, guys!
“Come closer, little Raymond!”
“All my favorite celebrities were there, like the legendary actor Sam Elliott.”
“…and Anna Paquin.”
“The governor of the great state of Wyoming, Matt Mead, even asked to take his photo with me.”
“These guys said they worked for the Disney Company, but I never heard of them.”
“It was a fun night until my wife Nancy said we had to leave. Ugh!”
“But I had a great time! I can’t wait until the premiere of Pixar’s next film!”
