Key Facts

  1. The film is about a 12-year-old boy named Miguel, who grew up in rural Mexico. He sparks a chain of events linked to "a generations-old mystery that forever changes his fate," according to IGN (8/14/15). The film will explore Miguel's family history as well.
  2. "As artists and filmmakers, we couldn't help but be drawn to the striking visuals of Dia de los Muertos,” said director Lee Unkrich and producer Darla K. Anderson. “But it was the celebration's core themes of family, remembrance and connection across generations that resonated within and truly inspired us. Dia de los Muertos is as singular as the Mexican culture, while at the same time completely universal in its message.

    “In our story,” they continued, “the celebration of Dia de los Muertos serves as the perfect backdrop for our main character to ask where he comes from, what his place is within his family, and how families stay woven together across time through the simple act of remembrance."
