Thanks to today’s release of the first trailer for their new film “Coco,” our Pixar withdrawal is that much closer to — blessedly — coming to an end. After director Lee Unkrich unveiled the poster on Twitter last week, it was only a matter of a time before the adorable and colorful trailer was released. It doesn’t disappoint.
“Coco” will be the second of the studio’s 2017 releases after “Cars 3,” and will be helmed by Unkrich and Adrian Molina, who previously directed “Toy Story 3” and “Monsters University,” respectively, so you might just want to get your tissues out now.
In “Coco,” Miguel (voiced by newcomer Anthony Gonzalez) dreams of becoming a musician despite his family’s disapproval of music. Desperate to prove himself and paired up with charming trickster Hector (Gael García Bernal), the two set off on a journey across the Land of the Dead to figure out the secrets of Miguel’s family history.
In addition to Bernal and Gonzalez, the voice cast features Benjamin Bratt, Renée Victor, and Ana Ofelia Murguia. “Coco” is set to be released on November 22.
