Pixar doesn’t make bad movies, say what you want about Cars, but they never cease to amaze us with the original content that seems to always go that extra mile. This first trailer for Coco gives us a young Mexican boy whose love for music leads him to a fantastical mystery that reveals Day of the Dead inspired stories and animation.
The colors and sounds of the Spanish guitar prove to be effective when it comes to introducing us to our hero Miguel and his dog as they embark on a journey that will supposedly reveal 100 year old mystery.
I don’t know much about this film beyond it’s Mexican inspired themes and cultural significance, but I do know that if it’s Pixar, there’s no doubt I have to go out and see this movie. If anything, the first thing I thought of was actually Kubo and the Two Strings, but hopefully the two films go in different directions.
