Last spring, I was visiting Pixar Animation Studios in Emeryville, California as part of the ramp-up to the launch of Cars 3. But that wasn't the only film that the studio was gearing up for at the time... down a festive-looking hallway, animators were hard at work on another Disney•Pixar film for later in the year... Coco. I wasn't able to explore further than the entrance to that hallway, but in many ways it served as a metaphor for what was yet to come - a story of a boy that was about to enter a colorful, vibrant world filled with music, and at its core - family. Now available in-home (sent to us by Disney for review), Coco is a film that families will want to experience again and again. Beware that the following contains major "spoilers" for those who have yet to see the film.
Last year, I was in the room at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California when the first footage from Disney•Pixar's Incredibles 2 made its debut. We still haven't seen all of that make its way to the masses, but now we've got our longest public look thus far in a new "Sneak Peek" that was seen during the Olympics broadcast on NBC. Check it out below, and look for Incredibles 2 in theaters this summer...
Disney•Pixar’s COCO is one of our favorite films of 2017, and now comes word that it's coming home. Coco arrives home Digitally in HD and 4K Ultra HD™ and on Movies Anywhere on Feb. 13, and on 4K Ultra HD,™ Blu-ray,™ DVD and On-Demand on Feb. 27. Already a fixture here at Rock Father HQ (our oldest is taking lessons at Guitar Center on her Cordoba x Coco guitar. Check out all the details about Coco's in-home release below!
Disney•Pixar's Coco is a beautiful film - a critically-acclaimed hit that has managed to win over audiences around the world and here in the U.S. where it topped the box office for three straight weeks. Coco is also a very musical film, one that captures the cultural flair of its Mexican backdrop, opening up a new world of sound for many. When you think about guitars that are also "movie merchandise," the first thing that comes to mind are usually little more than toys with strings - but for Coco an opportunity was present to do something special, and that's exactly what's happened with the Disney•Pixar Coco x Córdoba Collection. Available now at Guitar Center, this new assortment of real guitars is inspired by Coco, and priced and sized just right for both beginning players, or experienced guitar slingers looking for the perfect travel-sized guitar!
I'm a little bummed. Back in July, one of the many highlights of Disney's D23 Expo in Anaheim was an early look at footage from Disney•Pixar's INCREDIBLES 2 during the animation panel. In it, we got a glimpse at a few things, one of which I can certainly relate to - Mr. Incredible as an at-home dad, and what happens when he falls asleep and the kids start to play. That footage has never been seen outside of Hall D23, and with the release of the first public teaser for INCREDIBLES 2, you're still not getting to see it... at least not yet. Ahead of its theatrical debut alongside COCO later this week, take a look at the INCREDIBLES 2 teaser below!
