Coco: New trailer digs deeper into the Land of the Dead
Coco promises to be unlike anything before it.
The new trailer for Pixar’s latest creation showcases the film’s music, the journey to the Land of the Dead, and its groundbreaking all-Latino voice cast.
Helmed by Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich, Coco tells the story of young Miguel (Anthony Gonzalez), who dreams of becoming a musician, despite his family’s confusing musical ban. His path to showcasing his talents leads him to the Land of the Dead, where he will learn the secrets of his family’s history.
Unkrich knows the pressure that comes with taking on the story of an entire culture. He previously told EW, “The day John Lasseter gave the thumbs up for this movie, I immediately felt this huge weight drop onto my shoulders because I knew that we were doing something different than we had ever made at the studio and that for the first time, we were going to have this enormous responsibility to do right by this culture and not lapse into stereotype or cliché.”
Coco dances into theaters on Nov. 22.
