Pixar’s COCO Reveals Rockin’ First Image

Pixar’s COCO Reveals Rockin’ First Image

It may be the day after Christmas, but there’s still much to celebrate: namely, Pixar’s next original movie. While Cars 3 will be arriving next summer, 2017 will actually feature two Pixar films, with Coco closing out the year. Now, we’ve got our first glimpse of Coco‘s leading character and a better idea of what to expect from the film.

Coco co-director Lee Unkrich has tweeted out an image of Miguel Riveras, the main protagonist of his film, as he demonstrates his passion for music.

Entertainment Weekly debuted the image alongside a description of Coco‘s plot. According to EW, young Miguel (as voiced by Anthony Gonzalez) is a member of a family with a long history of shunning music after Miguel’s great-great-grandfather abandoned his wife, Imelda “to pursue a life hitting high notes.” Of course, that’s not going to stop Miguel from chasing his dream, or idolizing the late Ernesto de la Cruz, a singer voiced by Benjamin Bratt.

Now, here’s where things get a little weird. The EW description hints that Miguel’s “shocking discovery” about de la Cruz will send the young boy to the singer’s grave. And from there, we know that Miguel will be entering the land of the dead as part of Mexico’s annual observance of Día de los Muertos. That leads us to expect Coco will be Pixar’s take on a musical Tim Burton-ish film, and we are totally down for that.

Coco will be released on November 22, 2017.
