DISNEY TWENTY-THREE EXPLORES THE WORLD OF DISNEY•PIXAR’S COCO http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/disney-twenty-three-explores-the-world-of-disney%e2%80%a2pixars-coco/ http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/disney-twenty-three-explores-the-world-of-disney%e2%80%a2pixars-coco/#respond Fri, 03 Nov 2017 15:00:38 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/?p=160855  

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEWS WITH THE CREATIVE TEAM SHOW THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE NEW FILM

 

PLUS, BEHIND-THE-SCENES WITH JOSH GAD IN OLAF’S FROZEN ADVENTURE, RIAN JOHNSON’S TAKE ON THE LAST JEDI, A FIRST LOOK AT BIG HERO 6 THE SERIES, STUNNING CONCEPT ARTWORK FROM PIXAR PIER, AND MORE

BURBANK, Calif. – November 2, 2017 Disney twenty-three will take readers into the Land of the Dead with an exclusive sneak peek of Disney•Pixar’s new film, Coco. Rooted in the Mexican holiday Día de Los Muertos, Coco follows young Miguel (voiced by Anthony Gonzalez) on his quest to become a musician—despite his family’s wishes—which inadvertently leads him into the Land of the Dead. The creative team, including Oscar®-winning composer Michael Giacchino and Anthony Gonzalez, provide readers an inside look at the story behind this magical tale, which opens nationwide this Thanksgiving.

Accompanying Coco—both in theaters and in Disney twenty-three—is the next chapter in the Frozen story: Olaf’s Frozen Adventure. Members of the cast and production team take us back to Arendelle for this new holiday classic, which shines a spotlight on the importance of family and family traditions. “A movie like this taps into more than just the holiday spirit—it explores the meaning behind that spirit, the traditions that bring us all together as family,” Josh Gad (Olaf) says. “It’s very powerful.”

 

Star Wars: The Last Jedi also hits theaters this holiday season, and Disney twenty-three talks exclusively with director Rian Johnson about this highly anticipated chapter in the Skywalker saga. Joining the crew is newcomer Kelly Marie Tran, who reveals how much she loves the character she portrays and how she pulled off a great practical joke on the set of the epic film.

 

Step into San Fransokyo once more as Disney twenty-three explores Big Hero 6’s big move to the small screen on Disney XD, and get a peek at the Pixar magic coming to Disney theme parks around the world, including Toy Story Land at Walt Disney World Resort and Pixar Pier at Disneyland Resort. Plus, film critic and historian Leonard Maltin celebrates 80 years of the film that started it all, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. And remember Disney Legend Marty Sklar with a touching tribute from Disney twenty-three’s Editor-in-Chief.

 

Also included in the winter issue of Disney twenty-three:

  • A look back at 23 magical moments from D23 Expo 2017
  • The heroic women of Star Wars
  • 25 years of The Muppets Christmas Carol with Sir Michael Caine and Brian Henson
  • A droid-filled edition of “From the Desk of” with Star Wars Creature and Droid FX Creative Supervisor, Neal Scanlan
  • Regular features including A Walk with Walt, D Society, and Ask Dave

 

Disney twenty-three, which is delivered directly to fans’ doorsteps, is offered exclusively to D23 Gold and Gold Family Members as a benefit of their membership. The latest issue will begin arriving in mid-November.

The new releases are stunning examples of Bandai’s proprietary Chokogin engineering. The Chogokin Toy Story Combination Woody Robo Sheriff Star is set for release in December and is composed of 5 memorable characters from the film, including Woody, Bullseye, Slinky Dog, Hamm and Rex that combine to form an impressive giant robot.

 

The Chogokin Toy Story Combination Buzz the Space Ranger Robo is scheduled to debut in January 2017 and includes individual pieces for Buzz Lightyear, two 3-eyed Aliens, and a Space Shuttle and Big One Rocket that combine to form a similarly impressive robot. In spectacular Chogokin fashion, the Buzz the Space Ranger Robo can combine with the Woody Robo Sheriff Star to form an even larger super-robot that stands over a foot tall!

The new Toy Story Chogokin robots will be available from authorized Bluefin retailers nationwide and also from a variety of leading online outlets. Pre-orders for both units are available now.
