Although Pixar’s film inspired by the Dia de los Muertos celebration (Day of the Dead) isn’t hitting theaters until November 22, 2017, we recently learned that Benjamin Bratt will have a role in the film — making this the first vocal cast news to date.
In a recent interview with Collider (while promoting, The Infiltrator), Benjamin reveals (4:18 into the interview) that, “I’m also recording a Pixar movie called, ‘Coco’“. Of course, we don’t know any details surrounding his role, but any news about this exciting film that stumbles into the underworld is thrilling — watch the interview below.
UPDATED: The video has been removed from Collider’s site.

We think Benjamin’s voice could be a perfect fit for Coco with his confident and authentic delivery.
Coco is the celebration of a lifetime, where the discovery of a generations-old mystery leads to a most extraordinary and surprising family reunion.
