Calling all Disney/Pixar fans. Do you have questions about the new Disney Pixar movie Coco?
If you had the opportunity to talk to the writer, directors, animators, and musicians behind the highly anticipated film, Coco (in theaters November 22nd), what would you ask?
What would you like to know about Coco?
After you’ve had a chance to give it a little thought, either leave me a comment on this post, send me a tweet (@mamalatina), or contact me on Facebook (@mamalatinatips) with your questions. I’ll take them with me to Pixar Studios next week and do my best to get the answers you want! How does that sound?
Check out the trailer:
For now, I tell you about the interviews I plan to cover on my visit. First, I hope to interview Adrian Molina (Writer and Co-Director) and Dean Kelly (Story Artist). I’ll want to know how they used their research as well as specific, cultural traditions to infuse their story with life on Día de los Muertos.
Next, I plan to interview Academy Award winner Michael Giacchino (Composer), Germaine Franco (Orchestrator), & Camilo Lara (Consultant) about the music of Coco.
After that, I look forward to an interview with Harley Jessup (Production Designer), Danielle Feinberg (DP-Lighting), and Chris Bernardi (Sets Supervisor). I’ll ask how they created the worlds of both the living and the dead.
Then, I hope to interview Daniel Arriaga (Character Art Director), Gini Santos (Supervising Animator), Byron Bashforth (Character Shading Lead), and Emron Grover (Simulation Technical Director). I’ll ask how they imagined, designed, animated and clothed the characters in Coco’s Land of the Dead.
Next, I plan to interview Alonso Martinez (Character/Rigging Artist), Nick Rosario (Directing Animator), and Christian Hoffman (Characters Supervisor). I’ll inquire how they designed and brought Pepita and Dante, two characters from the movie, to life.
Lastly, I hope to interview Director and Academy Award winner Lee Unkrich and Producer Darla K. Anderson. They can talk about whatever is left and whatever they want!
So, get your questions together and get them to me. I’ll do my best to get the answers for you!
Also, since I’ll be near San Francisco, I plan to visit the Walt Disney Family Museum for a guided walk-through of the “Deja View: The Art of Andreas Deja” exhibit. Interestingly, Andreas Deja worked as the Supervising Animator for “Scar” in The Lion King. We will tour the exhibit in honor of the film’s release on Digital and Disney Movies Anywhere, August 15th, & on Blu-ray, August 29th.
