The film is being produced by Darla K. Anderson. Unkrich and Anderson were previously paired on
Toy Story 3. The film centers on a 12 year old boy named Miguel, who sets off a chain of events relating to a century-old mystery and explores his family history.
The Día de los Muertos, a holiday celebrated in Mexico and other Hispanic countries, was also used as an inspiration for last years’ The Book of Life from Reel FX and Jorge R. Gutierrez.
