Later this month will see the release of Pixar’s latest film, Coco. This new fantasy animated flick will delve deep into the culture of Mexico, most notably with the holiday Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead.
The story will see our main character, Miguel, venture over to the Land of the Dead, in search of something that will help him go against the long-held grudge his family has against music. Of course, while that may be his ultimate goal, one doesn’t necessarily set out to visit the Land of the Dead, because one doesn’t necessarily know it exists.
It’s only through a little bit of happenstance that Miguel ends up in the land of his ancestors, and in this latest clip, we get to see his awestruck initial reactions to the world.
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.”
