We all know how great of a run Disney’s Pixar has had with their films throughout the years, from the Toy Story franchise to recent films like Inside Out. But it seems like their recent slate includes a ton of sequels, which I am no opposed to by any means (especially The Incredibles 2).

This November Disney’s Pixar hopes to dazzle audiences with a brand new original film entitled Coco. Today the studio released it’s first official teaser trailer for the film. It does a great job at using bright vibrant colors that a lot of the Mexican culture is known for and introducing our protagonist Miguel (voiced by Anthony Gonzalez) a 12 year old boy who looks up to a famous singer/guitarist from the past Ernesto De La Cruz (voiced by Benjamin Bratt). Trailer sets up a journey for Miguel that will no doubt reveal to him a connection with his idol De La Cruz. You can check out the trailer below!

Not since Jorge R. Gutierrez’s  The Book of Life have we seen a film like this. This is a fantastic opportunity for audiences to have the opportunity to not only be entertained by a great story and dazzling visuals but also to discover some things that they may not know about the Mexican culture. Coco is being directed by Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3) and Writer Adrian Molina. This film hit’s theaters November 22nd, 2017.

Based on this first teaser trailer, what are your thoughts on the film?

The official synopsis for Coco is below:

“Despite his family’s baffling generations-old ban on music, Miguel (voice of newcomer Anthony Gonzalez) dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz (voice of Benjamin Bratt). Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector (voice of Gael García Bernal), and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.”

Coco hits theaters on November 22, 2017.
