After coming across what’s surely a rather appetizing bone, our canine hero is naturally intrigued — what red-blooded pooch wouldn’t be? This would-be meal appears to have a mind of its own, however, and once Dante latches onto it he finds himself being pulled all across his village until eventually meeting the skeleton said bone belongs to.

Watch: Pixar’s New Short ‘Dante’s Lunch’ Introduces a ‘Coco’ Canine

11 hours ago | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The recently released first trailer for Coco, Pixar’s next animation from Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich, helped to introduce some of the characters in the film, set during the Day of the Dead in Mexico, but today we have a new short from the company that zeroes in on one particular canine.

As the pal of our lead character, Dante the Mexican hairless dog leads Dante’s Lunch — A Short Tail, a two-minute short that finds him on a bone-obsessed journey. Created early on in the animation process, it’s a bit disappointing to see Pixar stoop to Scrat-level hijinks, but if they can create another dog character as memorable as Dug from Up, we’re interested.

“We just were really happy with how it came out and thought we would share it with the world as a little appetizer until the movie comes out,” Unkrich tells Yahoo! »

Artist Bernie Wrightson Has Passed Away

19 March 2017 2:43 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

His illustrations may have caused you to dread the next full moon, avoid the swamp on your shortcut home, or ignite your imagination with a peek into the post-apocalypse. Through his artwork, Bernie Wrightson has influenced and inspired generations of horror fans, so it is with great sadness that we inform readers that the prolific artist has passed away at the age of 68 after a long battle with brain cancer.

Wrightson's wife, Liz, shared the somber news of her husband's passing earlier today on the artist's official website and Facebook page.

A fan of EC Comics growing up, Bernie Wrightson, aka "Berni," began working on projects for both DC and Marvel early in his career, co-creating the complex character Swamp Thing with writer Len Wein in the early ’70s. Bernie later worked for Warren Publishing, where he helped bring H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe stories to life on the paneled page. »

Pixar's Coco Trailer Travels to the Land of the Dead

15 March 2017 8:49 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Even before we saw a frame of footage from Pixar's Coco, it seemed like something worth getting excited about, or at the very least worth paying attention to. When it comes to animated movies, Pixar certainly qualifies and their offering for 2017 looks like it could be something we have never seen from them before. Well, now we have some footage from Coco in the form of the very first teaser trailer.

Disney released this very first Coco teaser trailer online today, likely because the movie will be attached to screenings of Beauty and the Beast on opening weekend. Previously going under the name Dia de los Muertos, Pixar's Coco has been something of a mystery ever since the project was announced, but a few months ago the studio finally released a few images from the movie as well as a synopsis, which gives us a good idea of what we »

Coco: first trailer for upcoming Pixar movie

15 March 2017 8:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

John Saavedra Mar 16, 2017

From the director of Toy Story 3 comes Coco. Here's the first trailer...

Pixar has dropped the first trailer for its latest animated venture, Coco, the story of a boy who magically finds himself in the Land of the Dead after playing his movie idol's famous guitar. From the looks of the trailer, this movie looks to be a big homage to the days of classic Mexican ranchera films featuring such staples of the genre as Vicente Fernandez and Antonio Aguilar. The Dia de los Muertos backdrop, then, is the magical element that makes this movie a Pixar film.

If anyone is curious, it does seem that there's something ghostly going on with the main character in the trailer. The word 'coco' in this context is a reference to a ghost in Hispanic folklore. »

Disney's Pixar Releases Dazzling Teaser Trailer for Upcoming Film Coco

15 March 2017 7:54 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

We all know how great of a run Disney's Pixar has had with their films throughout the years, from the Toy Story franchise to recent films like Inside Out. But it seems like their recent slate includes a ton of sequels, which I am no opposed to by any means (especially The Incredibles 2).

This November Disney's Pixar hopes to dazzle audiences with a brand new original film entitled Coco. Today the studio released it's first official teaser trailer for the film. It does a great job at using bright vibrant colors that a lot of the Mexican culture is known for and introducing our protagonist Miguel (voiced by Anthony Gonzalez) a 12 year old boy who looks up to a famous singer/guitarist from the past Ernesto De La Cruz (voiced by Benjamin Bratt). Trailer sets up a journey for Miguel that will no doubt reveal to him a connection »

Music is a powerful device, so powerful in fact that it can transport you to another world. The newest Pixar movie, Coco, takes that literally by telling the story of a boy named Miguel who, in an effort to prove his musical talents to his music-hating family, is transported to the Land of the Dead.

Coming Distractions: Strum along with the first teaser for Pixar’s Coco

15 March 2017 7:23 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The first teaser for the upcoming Coco starts out on a small scale: A boy strums a guitar while watching footage of a star of yesteryear. But, as is the norm for Pixar, what seems like an intimate tale soon goes grand. By the time the hero—a Mexican boy named Miguel (Anthony Gonzalez)—is transported to the Land of the Dead, it’s clear a sweeping journey is in store. (Though, yes, by riffing on Dia de Muertos, Coco does appear to have some surface similarities with the Guillermo Del Toro animated project The Book Of Life.)

Of the 2017 Pixar releases—the other being Cars 3—this is certainly the more intriguing offering, a return to original concepts after a year that brought us Finding Dory. It also shows the studio attempting to diversify its storytelling given how its prior human heroes have almost exclusively been white. Coco ...
