Disney Pixar’s one original project on the way over the next few years is the sweet looking animated feature “Coco”.
Today the studio has released “Dante’s Bone,” a new two-minute short for the project which puts the focus on the main character Miguel’s hairless pet Xoloitzcuintli dog.
Playing almost like a Looney Tunes or Scrat “Ice Age” sketch, it’s a fun piece that shows off some of the film’s luscious design. Lee Unkrich helms “Coco” about a young musician named Miguel (Anthony Gonzalez) who yearns to become a musical icon like his idol Ernesto de la Cruz (Benjamin Bratt).
After he takes Ernesto’s guitar from his grave, he and Dante are transported to the Land of the Dead, where he and trickster god Hector (Gael Garcia Bernal) work together to find out the truth of Miguel’s family history.
“Coco” opens this Thanksgiving.
