Coco is set to be Pixar's nineteenth feature film. It is scheduled to be released on November 22, 2017.


It was indicated the film centers on a 12-year-old boy named Miguel, who sets off a chain of events relating to a century-old mystery and discovers the world of the dead.


Unkrich said the culture of Dia de los Muertos left on him a lasting and inspiring impression. The story originated from him wondering what if one could meet his deceased relatives.[2][3][4]

Disney/Pixar first announced Lee Unkrich's next film after Toy Story 3 at CinemaCon on April 24, 2012. It was referred to as The Untitled Pixar Movie About Dia de los Muertos. The following official synopsis was provided:

From director Lee Unkrich and producer Darla K. Anderson, the filmmaking team behind the Academy Award®-winning Toy Story 3, comes a wholly original Pixar Animation Studios film that delves into the vibrant holiday of Día de los Muertos.

The title of the film, Coco, and the expected release date of fall 2017, were first revealed at 2015 D23 Expo. The official synopsis is:

Coco is the celebration of a lifetime, where the discovery of a generations-old mystery leads to a most extraordinary and surprising family reunion.

On April 12, 2016, Lee Unkrich announced on Twitter that animation has officially started on Coco. The film's writer, Adrian Molina, was promoted to co-director in 2016.


Lee Unkrich confirmed that there will be a reference to a Stanley Kubrick film.[citation needed]
