We officially have a trailer for Disney/Pixar’s Día de los Muertos-inspired film, “Coco.” The movie features an all-Latino cast, including the voices of Gael Garcia Bernal and Benjamin Bratt. It was also written and co-directed by Adrian Molina, who previously worked as an animator on “Ratatouille” and as a storyboard artist on “Toy Story 3.”

According to Aztec mythology, the xoloitzcuintle helped the souls of the dead pass through to the underworld, called Mictlán.

And, yes. The golden marigold is featured prominently throughout the movie.

They’re the same flowers you usually see on Day of the Dead altars.

Legit, this looks like one beautiful film.
