“Coco” will be the second of the studio’s 2017 releases after “Cars 3,” and will be helmed by Unkrich and Adrian Molina, who previously directed “Toy Story 3” and “Monsters University,” respectively, so you might just want to get your tissues out now.

In “Coco,” Miguel (voiced by newcomer Anthony Gonzalez) dreams of becoming a musician despite his family’s disapproval of music. Desperate to prove himself and paired up with charming trickster Hector (Gael García Bernal), the two set off on a journey across the Land of the Dead to figure out the secrets of Miguel’s family history.
