From everything we've seen so far, Pixar's Coco is heartwarming, colorful, and magical, but we didn't necessarily have a good idea of what Miguel's life is like among the living and why his trip to the Land of the Dead is so important.
The newest trailer gives us our best look yet at the world of Coco and the overall theme of the film: family.
In it, we see how close Miguel (newcomer Anthony Gonzalez) is to his great-grandmother (Ana Ofelia Murguía), whom he talks to about everything, and learn more about his Abuelita (Renee Victor). Both women have certainly made an impression on the boy. But it's his now-dead great-grandfather, famous musician Ernesto de la Cruz (Benjamin Bratt), who inspires him most.
Coco tells the story of Miguel, who is filled with the urge to play music in a family that's banned music but feels like there's more he wants to see or know. That search leads him into the Land of the Dead during the one day the dead can cross over into the land of the living: Dia De Los Muertos.
Miguel meets his great-grandfather along with other members of his family, who show him more about who he is. But he has to find his way home before he's stuck in the Land of the Dead forever.
Check out this featurette below, which offers a great look into what inspired the rich, colorful look of the film.
