This publicity image released by Disney-Pixar shows Arlo, a 70-foot-tall teenage Apatosaurus, and a young human boy named Spot in a concept art image for "The Good Dinosaur." Walt Disney Pictures has pushed the release date of the film to November 2015, leaving the Pixar cupboard bare for next year. The 3-D film had been planned to hit theaters in May before Disneys announcement Wednesday, Sept. 18, 2013. It means that 2014 will be the first year since 2005 to go without a new Pixar movie.
