Charming Full-Length Trailer for Pixar's Day of the Dead Musical 'Coco'
"None of them understand me… I'm supposed to play music!" Yay! Disney-Pixar have unveiled a full-length official trailer for Pixar's Coco, the first musical and next animated movie from the beloved animation studio. The story involves a young boy named Miguel who gets lost in the world of the dead while searching for his great-great grandfather. The voices include newcomer Anthony Gonzalez playing Miguel, along with Benjamin Bratt, Gael Garcia Bernal, and Renee Victor. This certainly looks like Pixar's most colorful movie yet, my goodness. We also finally get a glimpse of the dead world and all the various skeleton characters he meets. This looks like it's going to be fun and emotional and a very potent reminder of the love families have. Though we still haven't actually heard a real song from the movie yet, I'm totally sold anyway.
Here's the third official trailer (+ new poster) for Pixar's Coco, direct from Disney-Pixar's YouTube:
The short synopsis is quite vague: Pixar's Coco follows a 12-year-old boy named Miguel who sets off a chain of events relating to a century-old mystery, leading to an extraordinary family reunion. Coco is directed by filmmaker Lee Unkrich (of Toy Story 2, Monsters Inc, Finding Nemo, Toy Story 3) and co-directed by Adrian Molina, who also wrote the screenplay. As explained in the EW article: "This is a story we want to share with the world, but it’s also been particularly important to us that when the Latino community sees the film, that it resonates and it feels like we got it right, and that’s what we’re really trying to do. We all feel the gravity." Disney will release Pixar's Coco in theaters in 3D starting on November 22nd, 2017 this fall.

Looks great. I'm excited for this film. However, does anyone else think that 'Bittersweet Symphony' is an odd / forced fit in this trailer?

Yes, especially when this is (supposedly) a musical and we haven't heard any of the original songs yet...

I thought that was odd too. Still, it didnt detract from how much I absolutely have to see this. I love day of the dead. I love pixar. And I love that Mexicans are getting love from them in this movie. Perfect timing.

Something like feel good thing when you don't need anything else. But alas, my kid has grown up and this is probably not going to happen ...

I love Pixar. I love that their films have always been original and take chances.......however, this film is an almost exact copy of another animated film called The Book Of Life!!!.......which I loved since it was original and took chances............Pixar, what happened, run out of original ideas?

lorod, there are many, many Christmas/Thanksgiving/holiday movies in general, so why not "Day of the Dead"?!
