Pixar is preparing for the release of its second of two 2017 animated features (the first being Cars 3) with Coco. A tribute to the annual Mexican holiday Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead), the movie now has a brand new trailer titled “Find Your Voice”!
While the past trailers have provided scarce plot details, this one reveals a lot more about the story and Miguel’s experience in the Land of the Dead, accompanied by breathtaking scenery, artistically-pleasing designs (I especially love the giant tiger-bird creature), and The Verve’s “Bitter Sweet Symphony”.
Helmed by Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich and written by Adrian Molina, the movie follows young Miguel (voiced by newcomer Anthony Gonzalez) who aspires to be a musician despite his family’s music ban. When he and his pet dog Dante mysteriously end up in the Land of the Dead, Miguel journey’s off to find out secrets behind his family’s history, but must succeed before sunrise or he’ll be stuck there forever.
Coco will premiere in Mexico during the Morelia International Film Festival on October 20, 2017, followed by a North American wide release during Thanksgiving on November 22. 2017. The film will be accompanied with the 21-minute Frozen short Olaf’s Frozen Adventure by Walt Disney Animation Studios.
