Pixar has released the first trailer for their upcoming film Coco. The film tells the story of a young Miguel (Anthony Gonzalez) who inspires to become a musician, following the footsteps of his idol Ernesto de la Cruz (Benjamin Bratt). One day, when he enters what looks like Cruz’s house to play the musician’s iconic guitar, Miguel suddenly finds himself transported to the Land of the Dead.
Pixar is setting an emotional tone very early for the film with their music choices in this trailer. You also see some very stunning visuals, something which has always been the animation studio’s strong point. The film will be its second release of the year following Cars 3, but this one already seems more exciting and something that will follow the footsteps of 2015’s Inside Out.
