The film is directed by Lee Unkrich, who won an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature for Toy Story 3. This will be the second Pixar film to be released in 2017, after Cars 3 hits theaters this summer.
Coco has been described as “love letter” to Mexico, and seeing this story be tackled by the geniuses at Pixar Animation Studios is exciting. Given their incredible technology improving as the years go by, who knows what they have in store bringing Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead) to the screen.
