Tonight on Twitter, Director Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3) announced the setting of his new Pixar film.

In his tweet he wrote, “So excited to finally reveal my next movie at Pixar: a story set in the world of the Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos.”

For those of you not familiar with the holiday, it is translated into Day of the Dead, which is a celebration of family members who have died. Parties are held all throughout the country.

More details will surely be announced when it is closer to being released, which is not until 2015.

So, who else is excited for Lee Unkrich’s next movie?!

The film was also announced at CinemaCon this evening.

    Ha…I just checked Hypable before submitting this same story and didn’t see this yet.  Variety has some details also.  They included this movie as well as two others that were announced in Las Vegas this evening.  I guess I wasn’t quick enough in writing it up.  SO EXCITED FOR THIS MOVIE!  Glad to see Pixar showing some diversity in its films.

    I know I am in the minority when I say this, but I was disappointed by Toy Story 3. It’s not the director, it was the story that really disappointed me. But I hope unkrich’s new movie is good. Pixar just rocks!

    I love the Lucas Arts PC game Grim Fandango, which is also set in a Dia de los Muertos setting.  Super excited for this project as that setting has been something I’ve been into quite a bit.  I’m just sad it’s 3 years from now!
