Filed under: Film FlickersDisney

Pixar fans get hyped!

On Wednesday, the first teaser trailer for the animation studio's latest film, named Coco, dropped — and it already looks incredible. Coco tells the tale of a young boy, voiced by newcomer Anthony Gonzalez, who makes a musical jaunt through the Land of the Dead on Dia de los Muertos.

While this isn't the first movie made about the Day of the Dead, the animated flick's director, Lee Unkrich was determined to "do right" by the culture as he made sure to cast only Latino actors as his stars. Lee explained to EW:

"Toy Story 3, we had this moment where Jessie turns on the boom-box and the Gipsy Kings do a Spanish language version of You've Got a Friend in Me. Which, it turned out, ended up being a real precursor to this movie. The day John Lasseter gave the thumbs up for this movie, I immediately felt this huge weight drop onto my shoulders because I knew that we were doing something different than we had ever made at the studio and that for the first time, we were going to have this enormous responsibility to do right by this culture and not lapse into stereotype or cliché."

Hear! Hear! In addition to Gonzalez, Benjamin Bratt and Gael García Bernal also voice characters in this soon-to-be hit.

Be sure to ch-ch-check out the teaser trailer for yourself (above) AND mark your calendars for the movie's release date, November 22!

James Franco's New Movie Is Hazardous To Your Health!

At least they didn't hurl!

Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich recently held a screening at Pixar's theater of the new Danny Boyle/James Franco film, 127 Hours - which chronicles the real life story of a hiker who gets trapped under a rock and has to cut his own arm off to free himself - and according to sources, two people fainted during the amputation scene!

Eek! We're not surprised!

Danny Boyle normally doesn't shy away from the uncomfortable, and this sequence, in particular, must be pretty rough to endure!

We definitely want to see it still, though! Even if some of it is through our hands!

Tim Allen Commits To Toy Story 4!

Filed under: Film Flickers

But that doesn't mean the franchise will go to infinity and beyond!

Tim Allen has signed a contract to reprise his role of Buzz Lightyear in a potential Toy Story 4 — if Pixar wants to go down that road.

We don't see why not! Toy Story 3 is making millions worldwide — over $560 million!

Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich says:

"I really tried my best to end the story of Andy and his toys and bring that story to a close in a really nice way at the end of ['Toy Story 3'].

"That being said, we know that people love the characters, love Woody and Buzz, and would hate to say good-bye to them completely. … We don't have any plans for (a fourth movie) — but we are trying to find ways to keep the characters alive."

Pixar already announced that the Toy Story gang will appear in a short film before Cars 2 which opens in June 2011.

Do U want to see another Toy Story movie?
