Pixar’s recent output (apart from the brilliant “Inside Out”) has been a letdown, from “Monsters University” to “The Good Dinosaur” to “Finding Dory”. Maybe their next one, titled “Coco” will buck the trend and be great. So far, we’ve seen next to nothing of it, other than some concept art. A trailer is said to be coming next week, but first we’ve got a teaser poster that finally gives us a taste of the characters and design of the movie. Actually, I have no idea how much that doggie will feature in the movie, but it’s still a cute poster no? At least, we now know it’s got a heavy Hispanic flavour. Check out the synopsis below for some more details on what the movie’s about…

Here’s the official description: “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. Character actress Renée Victor also joins the cast as Abuelita, Miguel’s grandmother.”

“Coco” is co-directed by Lee Unkrich (“Toy Story 3”) and Adrian Molina, who also wrote the script. It premieres 22nd November.
