Late last night while most of the adults were reading about Donald Trump’s 2005 tax-returns, PIXAR promised the first teaser-trailer for “Coco” a new animated-comedy coming this fall. The trailer is just a teaser, but if you haven’t heard of the film yet, the video should help put it on your radar.
The film follows a little boy named Miguel, who accidentally stumbles upon a mystery dating back thousands of years. The film was directed by Lee Unkrich and Adrian Molina, and stars the voice talents of Benjamin Bratt, Gael García Bernal and Renee Victor. The voice of Miguel is newcomer Anthony Gonzalez. PIXAR fans can watch the teaser-trailer below, or on the official Disney-PIXAR YouTube channel. This isn’t the next PIXAR film to hit theaters though, the next film on the schedule is “Cars 3,” set to release in June of this year. The third-installment to the popular “Cars” franchise was directed by Brian Fee, and features the voices of Nathan Fillion, Armie Hammer and Owen Wilson.
PIXAR has been putting out blockbusters since “Toy Story” back in 1995, and the studio shows no sign of slowing down. PIXAR’s latest release, “Finding Dory,” cleared $486M domestically for Disney and over $1B globally. That underwater adventure was directed by Andrew Stanton and Angus MacLane, and featured the voices of Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks and Ed O’Neill. Still on PIXAR’s future release-schedule “The Incredibles 2,” which is set to release in June 2018, and “Toy Story 4” in June 2019.
This weekend is the premiere of “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast,” which is expected to completely dominate the domestic box-office. The new live-adaptation of the classic Disney tale was directed by Bill Condon, working off a screenplay written by Stephen Chbosky and Evan Spiliotopoulos. The film stars Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Josh Gad, Kevin Kline, Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson, Stanley Tucci and Audra McDonald.
If you aren’t in the mood for live-action adaptations you can see “The Belko Experiment” or “T2: Trainspotting,” assuming you live near the five selected locations that the long-awaited sequel is premiering in.
