Pixar's Coco

 

Postby WEDway82 » Tue Dec 06, 2016 10:34 pm

Some details have been released about Pixar's upcoming 19th film 'Coco'. Due out in America 22nd November '17 and in the UK in 8th December '17.

Here's the official synopsis..

Coco follows the secret musical ambitions of Miguel, who resides in a lively, loud Mexican village but comes from a family of shoemakers that may be the town’s only music-hating household. For generations, the Riveras have banned music because they believe they’ve been cursed by it; as their family history goes, Miguel’s great-grandfather abandoned his wife decades earlier to follow his own dreams of performing, leaving Imelda (Miguel’s great-grandmother) to take control as the matriarch of the now-thriving Rivera line and declare music dead to the family forever.

But Miguel harbors a secret desire to seize his musical moment, inspired by his favorite singer of all time, the late Ernesto de la Cruz (Benjamin Bratt). It’s only after Miguel discovers an amazing link between himself and De la Cruz that he takes action to emulate the famous singer and, in doing so, accidentally enters the Land of the Dead.

In the beautiful underworld, it’s not long until Miguel encounters the souls of his own family — generations’ worth of long-dead but no less vivacious Rivera ancestors, including great-grandmother Imelda. Still, given the opportunity to roam around the Land of the Dead, Miguel decides to track down De la Cruz himself. He teams up with another friendly (and skeletal) spirit — a trickster named Hector, voiced by Gael García Bernal — to find De la Cruz, earn his family’s blessing to perform, and return to the Land of the Living before time runs out.
and a picture of Miguel and Imelda.

This was first announced back in '12 as "Día de Muertos" before its name change to "Coco". And I've been wondering how this project would turn out, so its nice to finally have some specifcs.

And surprisingly, despite the references to music in the synopsis, this is not a musical.

A new image of Miguel has been released.

In the shot above, you’re catching Miguel in a beautiful, pivotal moment: He’s just committed a literal grave act and borrowed — just borrowed! — the guitar hanging in (late singer Ernesto) de La Cruz’s tomb. Unfortunately, it’s Dia de Muertos, and Miguel’s well-intentioned deed of grave robbery is badly-timed, and he’s about to be inadvertently sent to the Land of the Dead, where he’ll come face to face with the same great-great-relatives who banned music in his family. Just guess how happy they’ll be when they find out how he got there.

I haven't been able to enjoy a single Pixar movie in forever.

I stopped watching 'Finding Dory' 20 minutes in, their formula is getting stale.

Well then you need to tell Disgust to take a sit and let Joy take control.
