Despite a full roster of sequel releases through 2019, including their latest box-office hit "Finding Dory," Pixar president Jim Morris vows to focus exclusively on original animated films and there's one in particular that we're eagerly awaiting. It's called "Coco" and it's about Day of the Dead!
Back in 2013 when Disney first announced the film, the studio received some major backlash.
Disney actually wanted to trademark the term Day of the Dead. The nerve!
"How could Disney allow such a blunder," Lalo Alcaraz, a Mexican-American editorial cartoonist and founder of Pocho.com told CNN. "I knew they weren't copyrighting the holiday, but I couldn't believe they would let someone in their legal department let this happen. On the surface, it looks like Disney is trying to copyright the holiday."
But then something pretty awesome happened.Related From Vivala: Why Mexicans Embrace Death
