It’s long been established that Pixar Animation loves inserting Easter eggs into their movies that reference the many other films they’ve made over the years. They even consistently tease future movies. And in the case of the recently released short film Dante’s Lunch, which is linked to Pixar’s upcoming feature Coco, there’s an Easter that’s both a reference to older movies and an upcoming one. But it’s so small and quick that you probably didn’t even notice.

While Disney/Pixar’s Finding Dory didn’t make a splash at this year’s Academy Awards, the studio did take home a trophy for the short film attached that was attached to it, Alan Barillaro’s adorable Piper. Now the company has released its latest short, Dante’s Lunch, which serves as a nice introduction to the determined, long-tongued dog that will appear in Pixar’s Dìa de Muertos film Coco when it comes out later this fall.

Pixar is releasing two new movies in 2017. First, we’re getting Cars 3, which feels like something of a safe bet because Pixar sequels are almost always a safe bet (Finding Dory made every last dollar on planet earth last year). But later in 2017, we’re getting Coco, the next film from Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich, and it feels like a less sure move. Of course, Pixar’s “risky” moves have often resulted in some of their absolute best films, so let’s keep that in mind as we watch the first Coco trailer.

This year we’ll be getting two films from Pixar Animation. One is the surprisingly grim and provocative Cars 3, which got everyone’s attention with that dark teaser trailer. But the other is thankfully an original idea, one that allows Pixar to dive into cultural territory they’ve yet to explore.
Coco follows a 12-year old Mexican boy named Miguel Rivera (voiced by newcomer Anthony Gonzalez). He is part of a family who makes shoes to get by, but has one unbreakable rule: no music allowed in the house. However, a new first look photo from Coco has surfaced showing that Miguel is directly defying that rule, giving into a passion for music that cannot be bottled up.

For the most part, we know roughly what to expect from Pixar’s upcoming slate. Of the four films they’ve announced for the next three years, three are sequels — Cars 3, The Incredibles 2, and Toy Story 4. The sole exception is Coco, first announced back in 2012 and first named back in 2015. Details have been pretty sparse, aside from the fact that it’s being directed by Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3) and centers around the Mexican holiday of Día de los Muertos. But that changes today.
With about a year to go until Coco hits theaters, Pixar has unleashed a torrent of new info about their original adventures. For starters, we now know that the voice cast includes Benjamin Bratt and Gael García Bernal, and that the story centers around a little boy with forbidden musical ambitions. There’s much, much more where that came from so click through to get all the latest on Pixar’s Coco, including a new look at some art from the movie. Read More »
