For the second time in 2017, Pixar is back with a new animated feature, this time in the form of Coco.  Earlier this summer, Cars 3 underperformed, at best, likely resulting in a rare financial loss for the studio.  Pixar's reputation has seemingly been tarnished a bit in the eyes of audiences, as 2015's The Good Dinosaur...
