‘Coco’ was released in 2017 and quickly joined the status of Disney modern classic with films such as ‘Toy Story,’ ‘Finding Nemo,’ and ‘Monsters Inc.’ It was Pixar’s ninth film to win best animated film at the Academy Awards and also took home the best original song prize for ‘Remember Me.’
The movie follows Miguel, a 12-year-old kid who goes into the land of the dead to meet some of his musician ancestors.
But when Disney+ launched many were disappointed that the movie wasn’t on the streamer’s catalogue. Why? Because Disney had some streaming deals with Netflix it had to comply with.
However, US fans won’t have to wait too long. Coco will be one of Disney’s first handful of films to return to the platform. Coco will premiere on Disney+ on Friday, November 29. In the rest of the world, the film will continue streaming on their respective platforms until Disney+ is available internationally.
Coco won’t be the only Pixar film to join Disney+. The Incredibles 2 will do so on July 30, 2020, after leaving Netflix and Toy Story 4 will be released on the streamer in February 2020
Also, Coco is not the only film joining Disney+ on Thanksgiving weekend. On Sunday, the 2004 Garfield movie starring Bill Murray will join its sequel, ‘A Tale of Two Kitties’ on the streamer. Sports drama ‘Glory Road’ and ‘Expedition Amelia’, a Nat Geo documentary following a team trying to solve Amelia Earhart’s disappearance will also join Disney+ on November 28.
