The Land Of The Dead Is Pretty Gorgeous In New Trailer For Pixar's 'Coco'

Pixar already has Cars 3 set to race into theaters next week, but they actually have another film coming later this year. Coco has been flying under the radar a little bit, but I think it has the potential to be one of their highest-grossing non-franchise movies, and the latest trailer gives some reasons why.

Going in a different direction than we've seen from them previously, Pixar is telling a story steeped in Mexican culture, from the gorgeous visuals to the film's score. And yet their dedication to warm, heartfelt storytelling remains, following a young music-obsessed boy who is transported by a magical guitar to the Land of the Dead. There he encounters a trickster named Hector, and embarks on a journey to learn more about his family's past and why they have a generations-old ban on music.  Gael Garcia Bernal, Anthony Gonzalez, Benjamin Bratt, Edward James Olmos, Cheech Marin, and Gabriel Iglesias are just a small part of the extensive, all-Latino voice cast.

Directed by Lee Unkrich, Coco opens November 22nd.
