The cast for Pixar’s upcoming films The Good Dinosaur and Inside Out were announced at the Disney fan convention D23.
The convention also brought new insights into to films, which will feature a dinosaur keeping a human toddler as a pet and a journey into the workings of the human mind, as well as a return to the ocean for the much awaited sequel to Finding Nemo, Finding Dory.

Pixar’s film The Good Dinosaur will be about a world where the dinosaurs never were extinct. It will feature an Apatosaurus family who work as farmers, tilling fields to grow crops in order to feed their herbivore friends.
Actors John Lithgow and Frances McDormand will voice Poppa and Momma, respectively; Neil Patrick Harris and Judy Greer will play sibling dinosaurs Cliff and Ivy, with Lucas Neff voicing baby brother and lead character, Ario.
Another film, now known as Inside Out, is a comedy from Up director Pete Docter and producer Jonas Rivera. It will zoom into the emotions that run the minds of a mother, father and an 11-year-old daughter who are moving. Lewis Black, Mindy Kalling, Bill Hader, Phyliss Smith and Amy Poehler are among the actors involved in the film.
“We get to take you places everyone has thought about but nobody has seen before. Places like ‘long-term memory’,” said Docter.
Other projects announced at D23 were Party Central, Toy Story of Terror and The Pirate Fairy.
