A 2015 Disney-Pixar animated film, The Good Dinosaur is set in an alternate history where dinosaurs never became extinct. The film's amiable orchestral score was composed by Mychael Danna (Oscar winner for Life of Pi) and Jeff Danna (The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, TV's Camelot), both brothers' first collaboration with Pixar. With tender piano-and-strings passages and rousing, full-orchestra segments, the score also counts diverse percussion and acoustic guitar among its palette. Mychael Danna also composed the score for Sanjay's Super Team, the Pixar animated short that was paired with The Good Dinosaur in theaters.
