Pixar designers, sculptors and character rigging artists (among many more artists) have crafted some of the most beloved characters in all of animation. A simple sketch on a pad of paper eventually grew to become a delusional space ranger, an inventive ant and even a talking dinosaur. As character designs are finalized, animators bring movement to the characters and voice actors bring a special spark that ignites the character's personality.
In The Good Dinosaur, the vocal team brought to life a several families of working-class dinosaurs, each with their own evolved set of skills. In the video below (Pixar Post YouTube), we edited the best moments from the actors' in-studio b-roll footage — enjoy this peek into the vocal recording process for the film.
