First Full-Length Trailer for Disney-Pixar’s ‘Coco’ is Here!

Share on Pinterest

Disney-Pixar has unleashed the first official full length trailer for this fall’s Coco!

The trailer, which can be seen below, features much of the visuals we saw in the initial teaser trailer, and expands on the actual storyline of the film. The film looks and feels like an all-out celebration of the Dia De Los Muertos festival, or ‘Day of the Dead.’

The trailer introduces us to the protagonist, Miguel (voiced by Anthony Gonzalez), who sets out to rediscover his heritage as a musician. Along the way, he stumbles into the ‘Land of the Dead’ and is led to learn more about his family and those before him.

What stands out from the trailer is the visual appeal of the film; the use of warm, orange-yellow colors immediately brings autumn to mind. What’s more, it’s exciting to think about what the music of the film will be like, considering this is a film rooted in music.

Coco is directed by Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3, Finding Nemo, Monsters, Inc.) with a screenplay by Adrian Molina.

It will be interesting to see how this film plays out and appeals to a wider global audience. Coco definitely has its work cut out for itself trying to capture a broad audience.  What do you think? Are you excited for Coco?

Coco hits theatres November 22, 2017.

    Coco might be a Netflix wait for me. However, this trailer looks visually beautiful. The story itself combines Day of the Dead with what in my opinion feels like an Hispanic version of the Sound of Music just without it being song filled, romance or Nuns vs Nazies. But what makes it feel that way is Miguel’s journey to bring music back into his family’s traditions and remember the happiness that will live on in their spirits.

    I’ve been really looking forward to this movie since its been announced! The trailer looks amazing but I do just have one small complaint. I’m a bit disappointed with the designs for the skeletons. I feel like there was so much potential with sugar skull style but they went with something much more subdued. I also don’t really like how they have eyes instead of just big black spots where their eyes should be, but that might just be me

    • K.C.

      I agree with you about the skeleton designs. I haven’t been impressed with Pixar’s non-human (or non-alive human) character designs lately, and the skeletons are kind of a culmination of all the things I find boring and unappealing about them. They’re very generically cutesy at the expense of looking interesting, which makes me feel like maybe the artists didn’t put a ton of research into them or play around with enough potential designs before deciding on a final product. And yeah, the eyeballs were a bad call. Empty eye sockets or a glowing pupil would have both looked better than this odd… mask… thing they have going on. Story looks alright though.

    Based on this trailer, I am super excited for this film. Unfortunately, I’m going to have to wait until it comes out on DVD to watch it.

    • Manuel Orozco

      I’m doing the same thing because the holidays are giving me too much to look forward to. But in particular, Star Wars Last Jedi, Justice League, Thor 3, Pitch Perfect 3, Ferdinand, Daddy’s Home 2 and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.

  • The poster looks super epic and kinda mesmerizing with that reflection of the world of the Undead 🙂
    The trailer itself was pretty good, I’m very curious how it’ll go down 😀

  • Marielle

    Am I the only one who notices that this “first full-lenght trailer” is actually shorter than the previously released teaser?

    • Manuel Orozco

      Didn’t think of that until now.

    • Pixar’s pretty weird when it comes to trailers. Just look at all the ones for Cars 3.

      • Manuel Orozco

        They’re always weird when it comes to trailers but they always leave us with a surprise for the final product in the end.

        • Harith Sami

          So they want us to not be overhyped or having high expectations for there films, the same marketing strategy for inside out. And sony ? Nvrmnd.

          • Manuel Orozco

            I guess high expectations

  • Jeremiah

    It’s mainly because this is such a meh animation year. But I feel myself wanting more. We’ve seen the joke with Character A seeing Character B and they both scream. We’ve seen the joke with heads and bodyparts coming off (it was hilarious back when Olaf did it.) And frankly, after yet another (admittedly great looking) Cars movie, I really want something super groundbreaking and smart, like Inside Out was. Something to really shine in a really mediocre animation year. I feel like we’re getting a strong movie with nothing too inventive or new, just another strong movie.

    • Manuel Orozco

      Actually I’m not finding the jokes funny yet until I see the finished product. This is a bit like how I didn’t find Good Dinosaur’s comic relief to be that amusing. It’s hard to say whether I will like Cars 3 or this even more.

      • Jeremiah

        Yeah, the jokes are cliche. I’m honestly looking forward to Cars 3 more. ^-^ We’ll see.

        • Manuel Orozco

          Same here. Plus I haven’t seen a Pixar film in theatres since Cars 2 six years ago. I ususally end up waiting until DVD Netflix. However, over 20 years after the original Toy Story Pixar is still full of surprises with their sophisticated storytelling and family friendly appeal.

        • Manuel Orozco

          Now before we all get excited for next week, I would like to say a few words. Cars 3 is not only going to be an emotional third act in the lives of the Radiator Springs gang but as well as a thrilling throwback for some of us here. These past 11 years have been one heck of a roadtrip following this franchise about talking cars which hopefully had something resonant to say. The original film was the first Pixar feature that first came out when I was a teenager. Lightning’s coming of age journey was symbolic as I was reaching a certain stage of life along with Pixar itself. Just as racing isn’t always about the glory, teenage life isn’t all freedom and totally new experiences. Doc’s saying that a trophy is just an empty cup wasn’t just a iconic line but a life lesson some of us took into the world. Proving that awesome stuff like Cars doesn’t come onto different continents every day life ships onto the sea as we all know. I would like to thank everyone at Pixar who put their heart, soul and sense of adventure into the world of Cars. We are forever in debit to them. This may not be the end of an era but the memories will live on.

    • This doesn’t look like Pixar’s strongest work, but will probably win tons of awards.

  • 1:30 is kinda short for a trailer. That aside, the animation here is really impressive.

  • Lee DeWald

    It’s like deja vu all over again.

    When I saw the first trailer for “Zootopia,” I was not impressed. I didn’t think I was going to like the film at all, but it ended up being my favorite animated movie of 2016.

    I get the exact same feeling with “Coco.” I haven’t liked anything I’ve seen so far, but I’m hoping it’s going to be another “Zootopia,” in that I walk away having really liked it.

    Fingers crossed.

    • Yep. Zootopia was a lot better than trailers suggested. This’ll probably be great.

    • Manuel Orozco

      My favorite animated movies of 2016 are Kung Fu Panda 3, Kubo and the Two Strings, Sing and Moana. But to each their own

      • Lee DeWald

        “Moana” and “Zootopia” are neck-and-neck for me. It’s like 50.5% for “Zootopia” vs. 49.5% for “Moana.” I loved them both, but I gave the slight edge to “Zootopia.”

        I also LOVED “Kung Fu Panda 3.” I’ve said it before, but I’ll do so again: Dreamworks could make a hundred “Kung Fu Panda” films, and I would line up to watch them all. For me, that series can do no wrong.

        • Manuel Orozco

          I agree Kung Fu Panda can do no wrong. It’s been a great trilogy and I hope DreamWorks continues with the movies. Especially when next year Universal Hollywood will open a new show to celebrate the original’s 10th anniversary and the studio’s welcome to the Universal family.

  • Trev

    Wow, they really piled on the orchestration in that trailer. It’s way too much if you ask me. Other than that, the movie looks pretty good.

  • Brandon Kelly

    This film has that ‘Book of Life’ for me. Not really interested in the subject of dia de los muertos, though good to at least have knowledge about it. This film might be a hard sell because films that heavily focus on certain religious pagan traditions are hit or miss with audiences. Pocahontas and Brother Bear did that to mixed results. Mulan and Moana kept it at bay, which explains their wider appeal.
