Easter Eggs Found in the 'Coco' Teaser Short, 'Dante's Lunch'

This past week (March 29), Pixar released an official Coco short titled, "Dante's Lunch - A Short Tail." The short which was previously released alongside the live-action Beauty and the Beast is themed after Dante (Miguel's four-legged companion) as he chases a bone through the streets of (what is believed to be) Miguel's hometown. This approximately 2-minute short not only features strong technical skills mastered by the Coco team - but a few hidden Easter Eggs as well.

In the first image (below) you'll notice a vendor selling several Lucha Libre masks, and if you look closely, you'll see that one mask resembles the famed Luxo ball.


As the short continues, we stumble across this young boy holding corn. Director Lee Unkrich revealed on Twitter that the team affectionately named the character "corn boy" and even created t-shirts using an original storyboard drawing by Madeline Sharafian (who single-handedly storyboarded the short). If you look closely at "corn boys" shoes, you'll see that they are stylized after Lighting McQueen.




As the short continues we noticed the name to the graveyard is "Panteon Santa Cecilia." Not only is this where we get our first look at (who we assume is) Hector, but it also may tell the location of where the movie may take place. Assuming there are not multiple graveyards with the same name, Miguel may live approximately 15 miles south of Mexico City (view on Google Maps).

In the graveyard, we noticed a familiar portrait on one of the altars next to (the assumed) Hector. While we cannot confirm when we zoomed in one the image it appears to be a touching tribute to the late Joe Ranft.


As we continue to watch Dante's Lunch, our excitement continues to grow over this beautiful film, and we cannot wait to spot more Easter Eggs when Coco hits theaters November 22, 2017.
