Pixar's Upcoming Animated Film COCO Gets a First Poster and Story Details
Disney has released the first teaser poster for Pixar's upcoming animated film Coco, and they've also revealed the voice cast along with synopsis detailing the story. Coco is the only film that Pixar is releasing in the next few years that isn't a sequel to an already existing property. The other films currently in development are Cars 3, The Incredibles 2, and Toy Story 4.
Up until this point, the only thing we've known about Coco is that it is being directed by Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3), and that the story would revolve around the Mexican holiday of Día de los Muertos. Now we have a more detailed synopsis that you can read 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. Character actress Renée Victor also joins the cast as Abuelita, Miguel’s grandmother.”
Coco will be released on November 22, 2017, and I included a previously released image for you to check out below.
