For those who like to snark that Pixar has fallen into a rut of sequels lately, with several on the horizon, here comes proof that new movies are still very much on the team’s agenda. The first teaser for Lee Unkrich’s latest, Coco, is now online.
Co-directed and written by Adrian Molina, Coco is the story of young Mexican lad Miguel (Antony Gonzalez), who wants to be a music legend like his hero, Ernesto de la Cruz (Benjamin Bratt). But there’s a problem: music has been banned in Miguel’s family for years, but no one will quite tell him why.
Yet when our hero (accompanied by loyal pooch Dante) accidentally finds a way into the Land of the Dead, he teams up with a trickster named Hector (Gael Garcia Bernal) and sets out to discover the truth.
