“My early exposure to all the leviathans of the Saturday matinee creature features inspired me, when I grew up, to make ‘Jurassic Park.'” - Steven Spielberg 🎬

I think it’s possible. I think because it worked out so well, it was kind of unexpected. I don’t think it as written that way, it was something that Carlos and I found a lot of that, and Kevin Smith (the Director of The Runaway Dinosaur) kind of helped is find that, too, and it ended up being a really interesting dynamic between Iris and Cisco, and so I think it’d be cool to see more of that, and to see more of Iris’ humor, but I don’t know. I don’t know anything!

Pixar animator and director Peter Sohn told Fresh Air’s Terry Gross how he helped inspire the character of Russell in Up:

“I did a lot of the scratch voice for Russell in the early production of that film, and I was in early development with them doing storyboards and I remember that there are these sessions when you’re sitting around a table and you are coming up with ideas [and] a lot of artists will draw each other all the time and caricature each other. We would call [it] “jacking each other” — where you would flip a drawing at someone and your nose is huge or something. They kept drawing me like a giant thumb with a hat and these kind of little Asian eyes, and somehow that shape kept recurring until it became Russell, this Asian-American kid. I got to tell you, I’m so proud that there’s this Asian-American kid in an animated movie.”

His new film, The Good Dinosaur, imagines a world in which the dinosaurs did not go extinct and people and dinosaurs now live together. At the center of the movie is Arlo, an 11-year-old dinosaur who becomes separated from his family during a flash flood and must find his way home with the help of a feral boy named Spot.
