Breaking news hot off the press from Disney. It would appear they’re on a release date frenzy as Marvel announce Ant-Man 2 and Wasp movies and now Pixar are getting in on the act to announce release dates for Good Dinosaur (November 2015), Finding Dory (June 17th 2016), Cars 3 (June 16th 2017), Coco (November 22nd 2017), Toy Story 4 (June 15th 2018) and The Incredibles 2 (June 21st 2019).
All this came from a tweet – we’ll update as we find out more.
Disney Insider give us a little more information on Coco:
The main character in the film is a spirited 12-year-old boy named Miguel, who somehow finds himself in the fantastical realm of dead. After the brief explanation, Unkrich and Anderson treated the D23 attendees with a “diorama,” meant to express the general feeling of Coco (even though the designs might change dramatically before the movie is done). This “diorama” was incredible and visualized as a single shot moving through the mortal version of Dia de los Muertos, with people celebrating and lighting candles for the family members who have passed on, and moving into the uproarious landscape of the dead. This is where things really take off, with skeleton mariachi bands, colorful designs, and lots and lots of fun. John Lasseter described it as “breathtaking, beautiful and fun,” and based on the diorama presented, we couldn’t agree more.
