Adorable! Disney has revealed another lovely teaser trailer for Pixar’s Coco, the first musical from Pixar, arriving in theaters later this year (see the first teaser here). This teaser trailer is a bit unique – it’s actually a fun short film titled Dante’s Lunch, focusing entirely on the dog from the movie. This reminds me of the Scrat short teaser videos that Blue Sky uses to tease their Ice Age movies. Dante is a breed of dog called the Xoloitzcuintle, or “Xolo”, better known as the Mexican hairless dog, and he befriends the boy named Miguel in the movie following him to the land of the dead. I love that we’re getting another Pixar movie that has a dog as one of the main characters, so I’m totally into this already, even if this isn’t my favorite teaser. Enjoy. ›››
“The music – it’s not just in me, it IS me.” Disney has debuted the first official teaser trailer for Pixar’s new movie, a musical titled Coco, based around the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead. We don’t know much about the plot, but as you can see, it involves a young boy getting lost in the world of the dead while searching for his father. The voice cast includes newcomer Anthony Gonzalez playing Miguel, along with Benjamin Bratt, Gael Garcia Bernal, Renee Victor. As our initial introduction to this original movie from Pixar, this is quite wonderful. I love that we’re getting a new Pixar movie that has a dog as a sidekick. Beyond that, it looks like it has the emotion of Monsters Inc in a Mexican musical, and I’m excited already. ›››

Animation for Disney•Pixar’s Coco began back on April 12, 2016, according to a tweet from the director, Toy Story 3‘s Lee Unkrich (Monsters, Inc., Finding Nemo). Unkrich spoke about the film and its inspiration, Dia De Los Muertos, back at the D23 Expo in 2015, saying, “I’d seen it portrayed in folk art. It was something about the juxtaposition of skeletons with bright, festive colors that captured my imagination. It has led me down a winding path of discovery. And the more I learn aboutDia De Los Muertos, the more it affects me deeply.”
Unkrich will direct the film with co-director Adrian Molina (The Good Dinosaur), who also wrote the script. Disney•Pixar’s Coco will be released on November 22, 2017. The next film from the company is Cars 3, which will race into theaters on June 16, 2017.
