Great news from Cartoon Brew:
Mexican-American political cartoonist and La Cucaracha comic creator Lalo Alcaraz made an announcement on Twitter yesterday: he?s been hired to work on Pixar?s just-announced Day of the Dead feature Coco. Alcaraz did not make clear whether he will work on the upcoming Lee Unkrich-directed film as an outside consultant or in-house artist. However, his role as a consulting producer on Seth MacFarlane?s upcoming series Bordertown offers some clues as to what role he may have on this new Pixar gig.
Coco is being directed by Lee Unkrich and is slated for a November 2017 release date.
