First Image From Pixar’s ‘Coco’ Released

The first image from Pixar’s next original film, Coco, has been released by Entertainment Weekly. Check it out below.


The director, Lee Unkrich, talked a little bit about his reaction to making the film.

“The day John Lasseter gave the thumbs up for this movie, I immediately felt this huge weight drop onto my shoulders because I knew that we were doing something different than we had ever made at the studio and that for the first time, we were going to have this enormous responsibility to do right by this culture and not lapse into stereotype or cliché.”

With the debut of Coco next November, can Pixar retain the level of greatness they held with properties like Toy Story, Monsters Inc., and Inside Out?

Plot synopsis

“Coco follows a 12-year-old boy named Miguel who sets off a chain of events relating to a century-old mystery, leading to an extraordinary family reunion.”

Coco lands in theaters on November 22, 2017.
