Disney & Pixar have released a brand new trailer for their highly anticipated film, Coco. The film, directed by Lee Urkrich, who previously directed the smash hit Toy Story 3, is centered around the Mexican holiday, Día de Muertos aka Day of the Dead. The holiday is meant to honour those have passed away.
The lead character, Miguel, dreams of one day becoming a famous musician like Ernesto de la Cruz, but his family has a strict ban on music in their lives. Desperate to prove that he is musically inclined, Miguel is magically transported to the wonderfully coloured Land of the Dead. In the realm, he meets Hector, a charming trickster and together, they set off on an epic adventure to unlock the true story behind Miguel’s family history.
Coco is set to open in theatres on November 22, 2017
