To say our worlds were rocked when Pixar finally gave us a touching film about la cultura a few years ago would be the biggest understatement of the century. ‘Coco,’ the 2017 American 3D computer-animated fantasy starring Gael García Bernal and Benjamin Bratt filled our hearts and also brought us to tears. Still, as satisfying as the film was, there’s no doubt it left us craving more. And it looks like we might just get it.
An IMDB page for Coco 2 has been created and I’m sorry but I can’t stop freaking out!!
According to IMDB user anthandsoc-95189 who appears to have long had the inside scoop on upcoming films, ‘Coco 2: Return To the Land Of the Living’ is in the works! Some digging around has also revealed that another sight might have information on the plot and characters of the sequel film. Of course, this information has yet to be confirmed and might be purely a wish, but if it is we’ll dream big!
According to IMDB ‘Coco 2’ will take place 6 years after the first film
The IMDB page says “It’s been 6 years since the events happened for Miguel. But when Hector, Imelda, and his great grand-abuelos need Miguel’s help to come back to the Land of the Living because some mysterious sinister masked skeleton is haunting and rules their world with an iron fist and sword and hates music.”
Which means, if IMDB is correct, we haven’t seen the last of Mama Coco!
Sweet Coco could have a really big role in the new film!!
Of course, other sites have other insights into the could-be sequel…
Because of course everyone has an opinion!
According to Fandom.com ‘Coco 2’ will take place six years after the first film.
We’ll see Miguel’s family attempt to throw him a fiesta, but sadly Miguel, still upset about Mama Coco’s death, will be upset.
When Miguel meets a sophisticated, ghostly and well-bred skeletal spirit Miguel will attempt to return to The Land Of The Dead for a vacation.
Now that’s an insane idea for a spring break.
In this version of the sequel, Miguel will a dark black hole to go back to The Land Of The Dead, to see Papa Hector and Mamma Imelda.
Of course, Miguel will be astonished when he sees his old family members for another time and finally gets to see Mama Coco.
Soon enough, Miguel is racing against time, once again, to avoid being a skeleton.
But this time, Marcel might not be so bothered by the idea of living amongst the dead for forever.
Of course, all of this is speculative. Who knows if Pixar has plans for a sequel in the works, but as one fan points out this clip by Pixar on the DVD release has some great hints!
