CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming is the backdrop of a new Pixar film about a dinosaur named Arlo and his human friend.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports ( “The Good Dinosaur” hits theaters on Thanksgiving. Pixar’s director of photography for lighting, Sharon Calahan, says moviegoers in the state will be able to recognize stylized versions of the Tetons and Fremont County’s Oregon Buttes.

The film follows the Apatosaurus and his human friend as they travel through prehistoric Wyoming, while Arlo confronts his fears and discovers his true capabilities.

The Wyoming Office of Tourism hopes the film will attract more visitors to the state. The University of Wyoming Geological Museum is also using the film to educate the public on the state’s geological features.
