In what appears to be an excerpt from the eventual The Good Dinosaur special features release, the Disney France YouTube channel (and Fandango MovieClips) has a brief glimpse at the filmmakers' raw footage shot during their research trip, as well as more details surrounding the 3D volumetric clouds used throughout the film. Watch as the team goes horseback riding, sketches the vast landscapes and rides the rapids, all in the interest of bringing realism and scale to the heartfelt, yet treacherous film.
After you watch the video, be sure to check out details from our own research trip as we went behind-the-scenes at Pixar Animation Studios to learn more about the film.
