This November will see the release of Pixar’s latest animated film, Coco. The film is an imaginative ride that celebrates El Día de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead), and the rich Mexican culture that goes along with it. This is an especially noteworthy release because it features an all-Latino cast.

So far, we’ve had a couple of teaser trailers. A couple months back, Disney released a Spanish-only trailer that gave audiences a much better idea of what to expect, but non-Spanish speakers still haven’t had anything that gives them the full breadth of the story they’ll be told.

Today, Disney released a brand new poster for the film, with the promise of a brand new trailer hitting tomorrow.

Check it out below!

The poster highlights the juxtaposition between the living world and the Land of the Dead. In the creation of this world, Pixar was very cognizant about highlighting the differences between these two worlds. As is evident in the poster, you’ll notice the Land of the Dead is very much a vertical world, whereas the living world is more horizontal in nature, among many other striking differences.

For more on that, I recommend you check out the piece I wrote from visit to Pixar last month by CLICKING HERE.

Below is the official synopsis for Coco:

“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.”

Pixar hits theaters on November 22, 2017.
