Disney/Pixar has dropped a dazzling first trailer for its fall release “Coco,” an adventure featuring an all-Latino voice cast.
The studio’s second release of 2017, following this summer’s “Cars 3,” follows Miguel (Anthony Gonzalez), a 12-year-old aspiring musician who is obsessed with legendary Mexican guitarist Ernesto de la Cruz (Benjamin Bratt).
In the teaser, Miguel touches Ernesto’s guitar, which somehow magically transports him to the Land of the Dead, where the narrative seems to kick off.
Judging by the first look, “Coco” has all the hallmarks of classic Pixar non-sequels: lush animation, expressive voice work, and an original, heartwarming story sure to resonate with audiences young and old.
The film comes from “Toy Story 3” director Lee Unkrich and was inspired by the Día de los Muertos, the Mexican Day of the Dead.
“Coco” hits theaters on November 20, 2017.
