Playing Anna Paquin Admits 'The Good Dinosaur' Might Be 'Too Intense' for Her 3-Year-Old Twins

The stars of The Good Dinosaur opened up to ET about taking their kids to Disney-Pixar's latest film.

In a world where dinosaurs weren't wiped out 65 million years ago, an Apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely bond with a Neanderthal boy named Spot. Together they embark on an epic adventure to reunite Arlo with his family.

Anna Paquin voices a cowgirl T-Rex named Ramsey in the animated movie, which is one of the first kid-friendly projects she's been in since True Blood, but don't count on her 3-year-old twins, Poppy and Charlie, watching it anytime soon.

"This is a little too intense," Paquin told ET. "I feel like because they've never seen anything in a movie theater, they'd be terrified. They've never seen anything on that big of a screen."

Paquin went on to explain that even if they did see the movie, there's no guarantee that they would actually recognize her voice.

"I don't know," Paquin said. "I mean they kind of get the concept ... They're pretty good at picking where their parents are even when we look very, very different."
