To fans’ excitement, Miguel and Hector from Disney’s animated film, Coco, will return for a possible new theater adaption of the movie.
The news was shared during the recent Disney on Broadway Concert Series hosted at EPCOT, according to Broadway World. “Coco is now in development at Disney on Broadway to become a live stage show,” announced actor L. Steven Taylor, known for his role as Mufasa in Broadway’s Lion King.
Tons of excited fans of the film took to Twitter to share in their elation.
The beloved film originally hit theaters in the fall of 2017. It follows a young, aspiring musician named Miguel who faces a generations-long family ban on music. The 12-year-old boy embarks on an enchanting journey through his ancestral history, making a lovable friend known as Hector along the way.
It was directed by Lee Unkrich and Adrian Molina and produced by Darla K. Anderson. Anthony Gonzalez played the voice of little Miguel and Gael Garcia Bernal voiced Hector, the “charming trickster.”
As of now, there has been no additional confirmation of the stage adaption or mention of a premiere date. But until then, we can look forward to other sensational shows set to appear on the Broadway stage such as a Britney Spears-inspired musical and a spirited Frida Kahlo musical.
