According to Lithgow:
"I recorded the entire role in Good Dinosaur. They have now dismantled it and completely reimagined it, and it is a fantastic new story. So I’m gonna record again on it within the next month. Don’t worry. It’s coming and it’s gonna be better than I ever imagined."Considering that we barely knew anything about the film, this update comes as huge news. While a complete retooling of the film may seem troubling, it's not the first time Pixar has done, usually this to great results, and Lithgow sounds very optimistic about it. He also offers some little update in the casting.
"But me and Frannie McDormand, we’re still playing Momma and Poppa dinosaur."So, at least it appears that the same cast that were announced at the 2013 D23 Expo will remain, although we can't know for sure until Pixar give us a solid update. Also, we still don't know who is replacing Bob Peterson in the director's chair (although I have a feeling that co-director Peter Sohn has stepped in). Personally, this update has gotten me excited to see this film and I look forward to seeing how it all ends up!
