The film was directed by Lee Ulrich (Up, Toy Story 3), who has previously described it as "a love letter to Mexico."
It follows a young boy named Miguel, whose fledgling guitar skills have him obsessed with deceased player Ernesto de la Cruz. Miguel eventually breaks into a museum and plays Cruz's guitar, at which point he's transported to the Land of the Dead.
It looks like another extraordinarily colourful and fun romp from the Pixar team. Before it arrives this fall, watch the film's trailer below.
