Coco continues to impress with each new glimpse we get. When first announced I was unsure about what it was. I have learned to just trust Pixar unless it involves Cars. So I should not be surprised that every new trailer gets me more excited for the film. To be honest, and this has been the case in the past, the Funko Pops are what got me super interested in this one. It was the first time I got to see the character designs for the first time and fell in love.
Today we got a new clip from the film. In it, we get our main character Miguel learning of a guitar competition from a mariachi. His family flips out, as music has been banned from his family.
Man is this going to be a colorful film. Every color pops, and the animation is stunning. The clip is not the only thing we got, we also have a new behind the scenes look:
Despite his family’s generations-old ban on music, young Miguel (Anthony Gonzalez) dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol Ernesto de la Cruz (Benjamin Bratt). Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead. After meeting a charming trickster named Hector (Gael García Bernal), the two new friends embark on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.
Between this and the last trailer we got, I could not be more excited for this one. If it was not for Star Wars, it would be my most anticipated film for the rest of the year. Hopefully we get another classic. Since it is Pixar, I imagine it will be.
Coco opens up in theaters on November 22. Right around Thanksgiving in the US.
