Director and Pixar brain-trustee Lee Unkrich unveiled a colorful new poster for Disney-Pixar’s upcoming underworld adventure, Coco (due out Nov. 22). The helmer also noted in his tweet that the first trailer will bow in theaters next week.
The — err, lively? — poster art shows a quite pleased dog with a large bone in its mouth (named “Dante,” per a nearby bowl) being patted on the head by a skeletal arm, and a lovely bone-white guitar with a skull shaped headstock.
These focal points rest against an old brick wall topped by strings of bright papel picado flags which hint at scenes from the movie, so get your zoom-clicking fingers warmed up.
Unkrich has reunited with his Toy Story 3 playmate, producer Darla K. Anderson, for Coco, which is being co-directed by Adrian Molina (story artist, Monsters University).
