(Wyoming) — Wyoming Governor Matt Mead will travel to Los Angeles this week to attend the Disney•Pixar premiere of "The Good Dinosaur." Pixar used Wyoming as inspiration for the setting in "The Good Dinosaur," and last month, the Wyoming Office of Tourism announced the state agency is the official destination partner
for the much-anticipated film.
Inspired in part by Wyoming’s incredible natural setting, artists at Pixar
infused a great deal of detail into the film’s environments. As the
official destination partner, the Wyoming Office of Tourism will develop a
marketing program in coordination with Disney•Pixar, showcasing aspects of
Wyoming’s tourism industry that inspired the film’s landscapes.
In the film, a young dinosaur named Arlo travels with a young caveman
through the wide open country side that was inspired by our very own
Wyoming mountains and plains.
“In the end, the film is basically set at the base of the Grand Tetons,
except that the designers added one fictional landmark: the Clawtooth
Mountains, near where Arlo’s family lives,” culture website io9 said.
Watch the trailer below to pick out a few Wyoming features, such as the
Tetons, Oregon Buttes, Yellowstone geysers, Wyoming ‘horn heads’ and more:
