At the last D23 Expo, an untitled Dia de los Muertos movie was announced. Nearly no details have emerged about this film since that event two years ago – until today.

During the Walt Disney Animation Studios / Pixar presentation at the D23 Expo 2015, director Lee Unkrich (“Toy Story 3”) and producer Darla K. Anderson (“Toy Story 3”) revealed the title of their upcoming film, which will be called “Coco.”


It’s described as “the celebration of a lifetime, where the discovery of a generations-old mystery leads to a most extraordinary and surprising family reunion.”

No release date has been set.

    Oh, WHEW! There hadn’t been any news for a while, and we thought it had lost the competing-project battle to “Book of Life”.
    (See, that was another Dia del Muerto movie that came out a couple years ago, and…oh, look it up on IMDB, I don’t remember it either.) 😉

      “Book of Life” WAS AMAZING. I live in a border town and with everyone I’ve shared it with found it INCREDIBLE. Very underrated. I am excited for “Coco” . It has something to live up to and I’m excited to see it regardless of it’s competitors.

    It’s called “Día de Muertos”
    Not “Día de los muertos”

      It’s called Dia de los Muertos Or Día de Muertos there’s really no mistake in either as a grammar article doesn’t change the meaning of the celebration, in Mexico you can hear peopple call it both ways and it it correct.
