“Welcome to the land of your ancestors.”
The final trailer for the upcoming Disney-Pixar animated film Coco has arrived, reminding moviegoers that “family is forever.”
Preparing to celebrate Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), with his grandmother Coco (Renee Victor), Miguel (voiced by newcomer Anthony Gonzalez) begins to feel different from his family.
“I’m not like the rest of my family. There’s something that makes me different,” Gonzalez’s Miguel says as he dreams of becoming a musician just as his great-great grandfather Ernesto de la Cruz (voiced by Benjamin Bratt) was. Eager to showcase his talent to his family, Miguel soon becomes engulfed in the colorful Land of the Dead, home to his ancestors.
Alongside Hector (Gael García Bernal), Miguel embarks on an adventure but must return home before sunrise or else be stuck in the ancestral world forever. Along the way, Miguel begins to not only learn how to feel “proud” of himself, but also more about where he came from, for, “In this world and next, family is forever.”
The animated family film also features the voices of Edward James Olmos and Gabriel Iglesias. Coco is directed by Lee Unkrich and co-directed by Adrian Molina. The film is set to hit theaters Nov. 22.
