When I was visiting Pixar Animation Studios earlier this spring, I couldn’t avoid being curious about a hallway that led to what is currently the “Coco Wing” – where work has been continuing on the next feature to bear the Disney•Pixar mark. It’s rare to have two Pixar films in one year, but it has happened – and this year it’s Cars 3 and Coco, and tonight comes a new trailer for the latter – hitting theaters just in time for the holidays. Check it out below!
Despite his family’s baffling generations-old ban on music, Miguel (voice of newcomer Anthony Gonzalez) dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz (voice of Benjamin Bratt). Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector (voice of Gael García Bernal), and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history. Directed by Lee Unkrich (“Toy Story 3”), co-directed by Adrian Molina (story artist “Monsters University”) and produced by Darla K. Anderson (“Toy Story 3”), Disney•Pixar’s “Coco” opens in U.S. theaters on Nov. 22, 2017.
