Pixar’s First Trailer For ‘Coco’ Is Absolutely Magical
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.”
The movie follows Miguel, a young Mexican boy with musical aspirations…
… who obsesses over a singer named Ernesto de la Cruz.
De la Cruz gives off some serious Pedro Infante vibes in the trailer.
“Coco” takes viewers on a colorful journey through the underworld as the worlds of the living and dead collide on Día de los Muertos.
The main character, Miguel, also has a Xoloitzcuintle, a Mexican hairless dog.
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.
