Coming Soon reports that Disney and Pixar have released a new photo for Coco. The film was also presented at D23, with the first public performance of “Remember Me” from the film. Anthony Gonzalez (Miguel) and Benjamin Bratt (Ernesto de La Cruz) performed the song, which was written by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. Then, over 160 performers arrived at Hall D23 at the Anaheim Convention Center, including Mariachi Divas de Cindy Shea and Ballet Folklorico de Los Angeles, directed by Kareli Montoya the Gordon Goodwin Big Phat Band.

Coco is directed by Lee Unkrich and Adrian Molina from a script by Molina. Darla K. Anderson is the producer. It will be released on November 22. It features a score from Michael Giacchino with songs co-written by Germaine Franco and Molina. Mexican Institute of Sound’s Camilo Lara will be the musical consultant.

Unkrich said: “Our film embraces a broad landscape of music. We were fortunate to have Kristen and Bobby create ‘Remember Me’—it’s the signature song made famous by Ernesto de la Cruz, and it embodies the key theme in our story: the importance of remembering loved ones both in life and beyond.

Here’s a synopsis: Unkrich, co-director and screenwriter Adrian Molina and producer Darla K. Anderson shared details about the original story with the crowd. In theaters Nov. 22, 2017, Coco introduces Miguel, an aspiring musician whose family long ago banned music. Desperate to prove his talent and follow in the footsteps of his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz, Miguel makes a fateful decision and finds himself in the Land of the Dead, where he meets his extended family and charming trickster Hector (voice of Gael García Bernal). Together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.
