Disney has announced the home release dates for Disney Pixar’s “Coco”. The film will be released on Digital and Movies Anywhere on February 13, 2018 and on Blu-ray/DVD February 27, 2018.
When aspiring musician Miguel (voice of Anthony Gonzalez) ends up in the Land of the Dead in Disney•Pixar’s Coco, his family takes him to the Department of Family Reunions, where a busy clerk (voice of Gabriel Iglesias) informs him that he’s cursed. To return to the Land of the Living, Miguel will need a magical marigold petal and the blessing of a family member—but, according to the clerk, the family member can include any condition she likes—even forbidding music forever.
Coco is 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). The film opened in U.S. theaters on November 22, 2017.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association remembered Disney•Pixar’s Coco, honoring the film with the Golden Globe® Award for Best Motion Picture, Animated, during last night’s ceremony in Beverly Hills, California.
Director Lee Unkrich, co-director Adrian Molina and producer Darla K. Anderson accepted the award on behalf of Disney•Pixar’s stunning film, which spotlights the importance of family and following your dreams. “Coco would not exist without the incredible people of Mexico and their beautiful traditions of Día de Muertos,” Unkrich emphasized, and he also expressed the filmmakers’ gratitude to “the loved ones that are no longer with us, who in ways great and small paved the way for us to be the people that we are today. We love you, we honor you, you inspire us.”
Disney•Pixar’s Coco has also been nominated for 13 Annie Awards.
