In just three weeks, Disney•Pixar’s Coco will open in theaters on November 22. The movie centers on themes about family & the Día de los Muertos tradition.
Coco introduces Miguel an aspiring singer & self taught guitarist who dreams of following in the footsteps of his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz.
Despite his family’s baffling generations-old ban on music, Miguel (voice of newcomer Anthony Gonzalez) dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz (voice of Benjamin Bratt). Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector (voice of Gael García Bernal), and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.
The all-Latino voice cast includes newcomer Anthony Gonzalez & veteran actor Benjamin Bratt (from TV’s Modern Family and Law & Order).
The film looks colorful & amazing! As for the tunes, they sure sound lively & toe-tapping. We can’t wait to watch it on the big screen!
However there’s another BIG reason to watch it in the theater & it has to do with everyone’s favorite snowman from the movie Frozen! Olaf’s Frozen Adventure will be the fun new “short” that plays just before Coco. This 21-minute featurette will showcase four new original songs! It also welcomes back the entire original cast who reprise their characters as Olaf, Anna, Elsa & Kristoff.
