CS Video: Coco Co-Director Adrian Molina in Mexico
Disney•Pixar’s Coco is available today on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and On-Demand, and ComingSoon.net was lucky enough to attend a home video junket in Oaxaca, Mexico where we interviewed the film’s co-writer and co-director Adrian Molina! Check out the video interview in the player below, conducted amid the pre-Columbian archaeological site Monte Albán!
Through fresh and fascinating bonus material, adventurers of all ages will tag along with filmmakers as they soak in Día de los Muertos in Mexico, explore the essential role of music in Coco and learn how the cast and crew personally connect with the film’s message. They’ll step behind the scenes to discover the inspiration behind the film’s creative costuming, Miguel’s beautifully complicated family, Dante the loyal Xolo dog and the stunning worlds of both the dead and the living. Features also include deleted scenes, insightful filmmaker commentary, the music of Coco and more.
Coco is packaged several ways to ensure viewers get the most out of their in-home viewing experience. The Multi-screen Edition (formerly the Blu-ray Combo Pack) includes Blu-ray, DVD and a Digital copy, giving viewers the flexibility to watch the film on different devices. Those with 4K Ultra HD capability may opt for Digital 4K Ultra HD or the 4K UHD Combo Pack, which includes 4K UHD, Blu-ray and a Digital copy. 4K Ultra HD provides four times the resolution of HD, bringing the rich color, textures and sounds to life and immersing viewers in two fantastically animated worlds. Dolby Atmos audio heightens the memorable score created by Oscar-winning composer Michael Giacchino and his 83-piece orchestra, as well as original songs like “Remember Me” by the Oscar-winning team behind Frozen, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.
Coco is directed by Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3) and co-directed by Adrian Molina from a script by Molina and Matthew Aldrich. Darla K. Anderson produces, and John Lasseter is executive producer. Coco features an original score from Oscar-winning composer Michael Giacchino, a song by Oscar winners Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, and additional songs co-written by Germaine Franco and Molina. Also part of the team is musical consultant Camilo Lara of the music project Mexican Institute of Sound, as well as cultural consultants Lalo Alcaraz, Marcela Davison Avilés and Octavio Solis.
