Disney handles the marketing for Pixar right?

Pixar has input, but yes, for the most part that is handled by the overarching Disney marketing group.

We certainly haven't seen the full film yet, but from what we saw at the studio and at the college "campus crawl" tour...yes, it's coming across as more juvenile for the fun moments (probably to attract young kids), but there are heavy moments and the heart will sell it (at least that's how we feel at this point seeing a total of 45 minutes of footage between Julie and I).

Ah, I should be more clear. I just mean that the trailers do seem to be geared towards a younger audiences. I probably chose the incorrect word there since it can also come across like the other meanings you listed.

I know I'm massively late on this commenting on this thing, but the posts I kept typing up kept getting lost for one reason or another and it crushed my motivation to retype them.

And now, having had time to stew on it...without the almost-talk-free, more serious tone of the first trailer, I'm considerably less excited. I went back and I rewatched the first trailer, and I started crying again, and I rewatched this one, and I bailed before it was over. They feel like they're advertising two different movies, and the former looks like the more interesting movie but the latter's the one we're getting! 

I mean, it's not like it looks awful or anything, some moments were fairly cute (oh my gosh, I love the little gerbil things) and I'm still seeing it definitely, but I just don't feel anything nearing the level of excitement I was feeling for Inside Out. It feels more on the level with my feelings toward Zootopia; looks okay and I'll see it cause I like animation and movie theaters (also last original for a while, in GD's case).

And I have to echo some people's disappointment over Spot being so dog-like. "A boy and his dog story, except the boy is the dog" is a cute way to sell it, but when you get right down to it it amounts to "We took a cliched story and gave the characters different designs". So I'd been kind of hoping he was stretching a bit and didn't literally mean it, but apparently he did. 

I feel about the same, but I don't really feel any disappointment because even just hearing rhe initial summary I figured I wouldn't like this movie as much as Inside Out, or even as much as my top 3-5 Pixar films, because I know my tastes pretty well and tend to have a feeling early on about it and be right. And my opinion isn't always the popular one (I really liked Monsters University, and while I recognize the beauty of Ratatouille I don't have it ranked high just because of personal enjoyment).

The Good Dinosaur has beautiful animation and looks like it'll have moments that touch on "masterpiece" level, but other aspects like the humor and the dog-like kid were just blah to me. I probably shouldn't judge too much before seeing the movie, but that's my two cents. And I feel lukewarm to Zootopia because it seems to have a lot of "typical" Disney stuff, right down to the two main characters' designs (the fox has a typical disney male main animal character look, and in fact looks a lot like Robin Hood). I do think it'll be a good movie otherwise though. I love the design of the animal side characters and their land.

Spot has dog like mannerisms, but he still appears to have the intelligence, empathy and emotional maturity of a human. I actually find that to be a very fascinating contrast, and one that could only be imagined in a movie like this.
