The Disney D23 convention started yesterday. Already, full of crisp details on the upcoming Disney and Pixar movies have been revealed. To the fans of La Reine des Neiges 2, Toy Story 4 or Les Mondes de Ralph 2!
If you are a fan of Disney, this must not have escaped you: this weekend is held in California the undeniable Disney convention, D23. On the program, revelations, confirmations, exclusive images, etc. This year seems not to be missing the rule. For its first day, the D23 has already been rich in crisp details. And we start with the upcoming Disney and Pixar movies. If we could learn a little more about the plot of the Incredibles 2, the other films on the schedule of the two famous studios have not been forgotten. We’ve had a lot of new details about Rene’s Snow Queen 2, Toy Story 4 and Ralph 2’s Coco and The Worlds. The latter will be released in theaters around the world on November 28, 2018, and we will have the opportunity to Discover in this second part a new character (or rather a new algorithm) named Yesss, interpreted by Taraji P. Henson. With his help, Ralph will try to figure out how to become viral on the internet. Last Surprises: The universes will mix in The Worlds of Ralph 2 since we will be able to find on the screen the Disney princesses but also the heroes of Marvel and Star Wars.
Let’s move on to Toy Story 4! We learned yesterday thanks to John Lasseter, artistic director of Pixar Animation Studios and Walt Disney Animation Studio but also director of Andy’s previous adventures and his many toys, that the 4th installment would have a new director! Josh Cooley, to whom we owe in particular Vice-Versa, Là-Haut or Ratatouille, will take command of the feature film. For the last time since there will be no more Toy Story after this, which will be released on June 26, 2019 at the cinema. Regarding The Queen of Snows 2, the 21 minutes of the short film Olaf’s Frozen Adventure were broadcast yesterday during the D23. Kristen Bell, who lends her voice to Anna, was on stage to comment on the images, which apparently delighted the audience. Unfortunately, no details on the plot of The Queen of Snow 2 were unveiled, not even the title. Only images of directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck on a research trip to Norway, Iceland and Finland were broadcast. The film will be released on November 27, 2019.
We also learned a little more about Coco, “stunning” and “incredibly moving” according to John Lasseter. During the exhibition D23, details concerning the music of the film, which will have a very important place in it, were unveiled thanks to the diffusion of the first images. In these, one can see the 12-year-old apprentice musician, Miguel, stealing the guitar of his late grandfather, which will lead to a series of supernatural events that will take him to the Land of the Dead. The presentation ended with a live performance of Anthony Gonzalez (who gives his voice to Miguel) and Benjamin Bratt (Ernesto de la Cruz), performing the soundtrack of Coco, in theaters on November 22nd.
