Despite his family’s baffling generations-old ban on music, Miguel (voice of newcomer Anthony Gonzalez) dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz (voice of Benjamin Bratt). Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector (voice of Gael García Bernal), and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history. Directed by Lee Unkrich (“Toy Story 3”), co-directed by Adrian Molina (story artist “Monsters University”) and produced by Darla K. Anderson (“Toy Story 3”), Disney•Pixar’s “Coco” opens in U.S. theaters on Nov. 22, 2017.
Like my typical Disney Events I will be sharing my experience LIVE via social media! (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, SnapChat, and more!) I will also be posting about the event in the weeks following, here on the blog. I’ll be headed out to San Francisco, Ca on Wednesday along with 25 other amazing bloggers and we will be using the #PixarCocoEvent as the MAIN hashtag. Other hashtags include: #TheLionKing #Waltagram So make sure you check in frequently!
What Will I Be Covering?
From seeing footage from the new movie to chatting with Director Lee Unkrich, Writer and Co-Director Adrian Molina and Producer Darla K. Anderson and everything in between. I like visiting PIXAR and seeing things first hand. They go into such depth explaining and showing us just how they create these epic movies. I don’t want to spoil everything, but one of the things we will be checking out is a MUSIC OF COCO demo with Michael Giacchino (Composer), Germaine Franco (Orchestrator), Camilo Lara (Consultant) & Adrian Molina (Writer and Co-Director). Keep checking in via social media from August 2-4th to see what I can show you from behind the scenes at PIXAR.
Walt Disney Family Museum
The fascinating and inspiring story of Walt Disney, whose artistry, creativity and vision helped define 20thcentury American culture, has been brought to life at The Walt Disney Family Museum, which opened in the Presidio of San Francisco on October 1, 2009. The 40,000 square foot Museum illuminates Walt Disney’s tremendous successes, disappointments, and unyielding optimism as he pursued innovation and excellence while entertaining and enchanting generations worldwide.
We will go check out the Walt Disney Family Museum and wal through a guided walk-through of the “Awaking Beauty: The Art of Eyvind Earle” exhibit!
