Ahead of the eagerly-anticipated release of the upcoming Coco, the lovely lot at Pixar Animation Studios have provided a brand new short film called Dante’s Lunch, which introduces us to the loveable hound, and serves up something to savour as we wait for the new film to arrive.
Directed by Lee Unkrich of Toy Story 3 fame, the film stars Anthony Gonzalez, Gael García Bernal, Benjamin Bratt, Ana Ofelia Murguia, and Renée Victor, and it’ll arrive in UK cinemas just in time for Christmas. Check out the delightful new short below, which sees Dante go to extreme lengths to secure a succulent bone…
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.
Disney•Pixar’s Coco opens across UK cinemas in IMAX 3D and Disney 3D from 1st December.
