Pixar Visits The Land Of The Dead In New COCO Trailer (VIDEO)

Who knew the afterlife looked so much like a possible future Disney World theme park? That’s what Disney’s corporate brand Pixar has devised in Coco, their next original story that’s set to hit theaters this holiday season.

Inspired by the annual Mexican holiday tradition known as Day of the Dead, in which celebrants pray for and remember friends and family members who have died in order to help support their spiritual journeys, Coco follows an aspiring boy musician named Miguel has he crosses over to the other side.

If you feel like you’ve seen this before, you have; the 2014 animated movie The Book of Life covered the same territory. No doubt Pixar will put its own sentimental stamp on it, though, while also giving Hispanic audiences a major animated event that celebrates their culture.

Starring the voices of Anthony Gonzalez, Gael García BernalBenjamin BrattAna Ofelia MurguíaSofía Espinosa, Edward James OlmosGabriel IglesiasCheech Marin, and many more, Coco opens on November 22, 2017.
