Although we’ve already got one Pixar movie coming in June, the acclaimed animation studio has a second film due out later this year that looks to be their contemplative art house drama intended to balance out the cash grab sequel that is Cars 3. Coco is directed by Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3) and co-directed and written by Adrian Molina (The Good Dinosaur) and the story revolves around a 12-year-old boy in a small Mexican village who secretly dreams of becoming a musician in a family that hates music. An investigation into his family history, however, soon leads him to the Land of the Dead where he finds the inspiration he needs to follow his dream. Coco features the voices of Benjamin Bratt and Gael GarcĂ­a Bernal and it hits theatres on Nov. 22nd. Check out the trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.

    The Book of Life kinda already did this didnt it?

  • Sean

    Yeah, although I am curious which one was in development first. I believe this movie was announced a few years ago as “Untitled Dia de los Muertos Film” or something like that. I can find references to it as far back as at least 2012.

  • Lori Cerny

    Anything to get more diversity in movies, please!!!

    It’s kinda sad to look back at films and only see white, white, white middle class people. I know someone that watches about three movies a year, because none of the characters relate to his ethnicity, economic status, or lifestyle.

    Your friend is an insular narcissist.

    If I took his same approach I wouldn’t watch any of the wonderful cinema from Japan, China, Korea, Russia, Eastern Europe, Scandinavia.

    Cinema should expand your worldview. Expecting it give you a a reflection of yourself is painfully narcissistic.

  • There was some minor drama about this on Twitter, even Guillermo Del Toro told people to chillax, seems like the directors are friends and it was a coincidence.
