Lee Unkrich's Dia De Los Muertos Film to be a Musical?

Nearly three years ago, John Lasseter provided a brief description of the slate of planned Pixar films at the 2012 CinemaCon, revealing details surrounding Inside Out, The Good Dinosaur as well as an untitled film that Lee Unkrich was developing based on the Mexican holiday, Dia de los Muertos. Although specific details are still under wraps for Unkrich's film as of today, we now have a brief glimpse into one major element of the film's development thanks to a ClassicFM interview with famed composer, Randy Newman. Assuming Newman's comments are accurate, it would appear that Pixar is making the leap into musicals with the Latin holiday (which honors the lives of those who have passed). Listen to a brief clip from the interview below.


With the celebratory nature of the holiday, known for its bright colors, flowers, parades and shrines we can certainly see how this film could fit as a musical, but we also wonder about your thoughts? Leave a comment below or chat about it on the Dia de los Muertos Pixar Post Forum page. Thanks as well to Forum user mynameiskhannie for getting the conversation started on the forum regarding Randy's interview.
