Director Lee Unkrich (â€œToy Story 3â€) and producer Darla K. Anderson (â€œToy Story 3â€) revealed the title of their upcoming film: DisneyÂ·Pixarâ€™s, Coco is the celebration of a lifetime, whereÂ the discovery of a generations-old mystery leads to a most extraordinaryÂ andÂ surprising family reunion.
â€œAs artists and filmmakers, we couldnâ€™t help but be drawn to the striking visuals of Dia de los Muertos,â€ said Unkrich and Anderson. â€œBut it was the celebrationâ€™s core themes of family, remembrance and connection across generations that resonated within and truly inspired us. Dia de los Muertos is as singular as the Mexican culture, while at the same time completely universal in its message.
â€œIn our story,â€ they continued, â€œthe celebration of Dia de los Muertos serves as the perfect backdrop for our main character to ask where he comes from, what his place is within his family, and how families stay woven together across time through the simple act of remembrance.â€
