We’ve all been eagerly anticipating Coco, which is still more than a month away from release. We’re expecting to be fully immersed in another gorgeously crafted Pixar world. With Lee Unkrich’s latest feature, we’ll be journeying to both Mexico and the Land of the Dead. But experiencing the film extends beyond the theater.
Coco is Pixar’s first foray into virtual reality, and this after being the studio’s first film embellished on the side of an airplane! Check out the stunning VR trailer below:
This VR debuts on Oculus Rift on November 15th, and on the film’s premiere date, November 22nd with Samsung Gear VR. There’s also an additional feature with Facebook connect, where you can explore the world with friends. Previews for the Coco VR experience will also be unveiled at the following locations:
October 28th: Dia de Los Muertos festivals in Los Angeles, Oakland, Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Phoenix, New York City and Chicago.
October 28th-29th: The Camp Flog Gnaw Musical Festival in Los Angeles. Camp Flog Naw was started by rapper and artist Tyler, the Creator, who’s also a huge Pixar fan!
Disney stores and theaters beginning on November 22nd, though the exact locations are yet to be determined.
This is an excellent way to experience yet another magical world in an entirely new way, which is what we’ve come to expect with Pixar.
