'The Good Dinosaur' is Pixar's sixteenth and most recent feature film. The film centers on the progression that Arlo, the Apatosaurus, learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of. The message about the theme fear in the movie is best delivered by the advice of Butch to Arlo “We should not be not afraid of something, but learn how to get through it."
Firstly, it is undeniable that the fear exists in every self. From the beginning of the, Arlo comes out of the egg as a shy, scared Apatosaurus. Fear prevents him from completing even the small tasks of the family such as: feeding the chickens or watching out the silo. A critter, a mother chicken, or even just a bug can scares him away. Arlo wants to overcome his fears, and his father wants to help him, yet Arlo is scared of even the smallest things. When Henry, the papa dinosaur, takes him out into the field at night, a bug lands on Arlo's nose and he screams for his dad.

His father's tragic death, his separation from the family and his enduring trip to come back home have taught him the lesson of fearlessness. Several times in the film, the good dinosaur manages to summon his courage to save his friends such as when Arlo charges in and head-butts a raptor away to help Butch or when he saves Spot from the flash flood. Like his father states, "You've got to get through your fear to see the beauty on the other side", Arlo gains his powerful roar through the occasions when he selflessly protects Spot, the critter from the evil pterodactyls. The chances created during the journey has led him to discover his true self, “what he is made of”. And finally, Arlo has done something bigger than himself and made his mark on the world. His father must be very proud of such a better dinosaur his son has
