Here is the first full trailer for Coco, the film Disney/Pixar is offering up this Thanksgiving, which might remind you of Fox’s The Book of Life. The 3D animated family film features La Muerte a.k.a Day of the Dead in its storyline, a special Mexican and Latin American holiday honoring those who have passed.
Coco is directed by Pixar talent Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3), co-directed by Adrian Molina (story artist on Monsters University) and produced by Darla K. Anderson (Toy Story 3).
Meanwhile, the lead character, Miguel is voiced by newcomer Anthony Gonzales, who dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz (Benjamin Bratt), though his family has a ban on music.
Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself magically transported to the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector (Gael García Bernal), and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.
The film is set to hit theaters on November 23.
