Pixar Reveals Full Cast, Character Details For Coco

Pixar's next original film seems like it's guaranteed to be a hit. Coco, which blew everyone away when its first teaser was released in March, will likely get a full trailer soon, but in the meantime, Pixar is giving fans something to hold them over by releasing more details about the movie's intriguing and fun characters.

Newcomer Anthony Gonzalez leads the movie's all-Latino voice cast as Miguel, a young boy from a shoemaker's family who dreams of becoming a musician like his idol, the late Ernesto de la Cruz (Benjamin Bratt), despite his family having banned music for generations. When Miguel goes to retrieve de la Cruz's guitar, he ends up transporting himself to the Land of the Dead, where he goes on an adventure to find out his real family history. Miguel will be accompanied on his adventure by a trickster named Hector, voiced by Gael Garcia Bernal.

Renee Victor will head Miguel's family as his strict but devoted Abuelita, while Ana Ofelia Murguia plays his beloved great-grandmother, Mama Coco. Jaime Camil and Sofia Espinosa will voice his parents, while Luis Valdez will voice his uncle. In the land of the living, he'll also have encounters with Lombardo Boyar's friendly musician Mariachi.

Of course, this being a trip into the Land of the Dead, there are also quite a few deceased family members who will show up, including Alanna Ubach as his great-great-grandmother Mama Imelda, Selene Luna as his aunt Tia Rosita, Alfonso Arau as his great-grandfather Papa Julio, and Herbert Siguenza as his twin uncles Tio Oscar and Tio Felipe. 

Other people who Miguel will encounter on his trip through the Land of the Dead include the curmudgeonly Chicharron, voiced by Edward James Olmos, a corrections officer voiced by Cheech Marin, an emcee voiced by Blanca Araceli, a clerk voiced by Gabriel Iglesias, and an arrival agent voiced by Octavio Solis.

Adrian Moina (Monsters University) wrote and co-directed Coco with Toy Story 2's Lee Unkrich. The movie is set to rock into theaters on Nov. 22; while we wait, see the hidden details in Pixar movies that you may have missed.
