eelyajekiM   |  

COCO Pixar

It’s almost hard to find a “bad” Pixar film. Even their weakest efforts have some very likable qualities, and almost every film is just gorgeous to look at. But when it comes to Coco, the animation studio has really outdone themselves. The latest trailer is full of vibrant colors and emotional musical pieces that really get at the heart of the film’s plot, which follows a young boy named Miguel who, desperate to become an accomplished musician like his idol, finds himself in the land of the dead during Mexico’s celebrated Dia De Los Muertos or Day of the Dead. A love for family and music sing true in what is obviously a love letter to Mexico.

Check out the full Coco trailer here below.

Dante's Lunch Coco short header

A Pixar feature wouldn’t be the same without a short attached to it. These shorts are innovative and beautiful stories from Pixar artists but are not a part of the animation studio’s brain trust. Often times these shorts are proving ground for new technologies that pave the way for upcoming features. These theatrical shorts are fun to watch nonetheless as they have the same charm and allure as any full-length Pixar flick, but just in fun size.

But it is a little bit different for Dante’s Lunch, a short used as an animation test for Coco which comes to us from Coco and Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich. More on this story and watch the short below.

Pixar Header

Pixar had been regarded as a studio who could produce high quality original films. Then they dipped their toes into sequels, and for all the sequels they have made, only one can be considered the worst of not only the sequels, but of Pixar’s entire library itself. While Monsters University is definitely a step in the right direction for the studio, after two softball films – Cars 2 and Brave, the film itself is a prequel.

But for fans who are worried that the studio is straying away from original content, Ed Catmull, the President of Pixar, said that the studio is hoping to do an original movie every single year, and sequels every other year.
