If you haven’t heard about Pixar’s latest film Coco, you are about to fall in love. A new trailer for the film dropped today, and really shows the work put into the film’s lighting and colors. I have to say the film looks absolutely beautiful, and displays two, unique worlds. The story revolves around a young boy named Miguel and his journey into the land of the dead, and his quest to return home.

The film comes from the mind of Toy Story 3 director Skeet Unkrich, and is based on the Mexican holiday of Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. Unkrich, who first pitched the idea seven years ago, in 2010, also co-directed the film with the film’s writer Adrian Molina. During a recent visit to Pixar in Emeryville, Ca, the LRM team heard the creative team talk about what went into giving the film its fantastic look, it is really nice to finally see what they discussed represented on screen. Along with the trailer, comes a new image, you can check it out below:

While the color and lighting truly shine in this film, I also think Pixar did a wonderful job on making the skeletons who reside in the land of the dead as welcoming as they could as to not scare younger children, and allow them to enjoy the film as well. Dante the hairless dog is also shaping up to become a very memorable Pixar character, his tongue is almost a character itself and we can’t forget the film’s star, Miguel, who will surely play his way into all our hearts.

If I learned one thing from the new trailer, it’s that having anything to do with music will get you la chancla! Watch out!

Coco hits theaters November 22, 2017.

    The skeletons are cute. But, sometimes kids movies can be pretty creepy, like Dark Crystal. Don’t seems to be the case. Pixar’s films are always heart-warming.

    I find it interesting that no one has even mentions Book of Life, seems like Pixar is late to the party.

      As soon as this project was announced, people were already drawing comparisons to Book of Life. Tonally, Book of Life is a VERY different movie.

      And it’s not like we’re allowed to have only one movie about the Day of the Dead. That’d be like saying Miracle on 34th Street was “late to the party” because somebody already made It’s A Wonderful Life.
