We know that Pixar are busy with their upcoming sequels but their next original feature film is set in the heart of Mexico and we have another look at the main character of this film, Coco.
We've already had some news for Pixar's next original film, Coco, as we know that Anthony Gonzalez will be playing the role of Miguel, joined by Benjamin Bratt as music idol Ernesto de la Cruz. The story follows the young Miguel; an aspiring musician whose family has imposed a generations-long ban on music. Desperate to emulate his idol Ernesto de la Cruz, Miguel somehow finds himself in the vibrant and colourful Land of the Dead. As his journey unfolds, he teams up with charming trickster Hector (Gael Garcia Bernal) who helps him find the truth about his family’s past, including that of his Abuelita (or Grandma, voiced by Renée Victor).
As you can see in the above image, posted on Disney's official Instagram, the movie is going to be rich in colour that will respond to the music. We're getting a strong feeling that music is not only a big part of the story, but of the entire film itself here. Disney have recently started to really up their game of being culturally respectful so coupling this with Pixar, who have assembled a cast who, so far, are all at least have latino heritage, we are going to be in for a treat with this film.
Coco will be strumming it's way to cinemas on 22nd November 2017.
