Pixar’s second film of 2017 is Coco, the story of a Mexican boy, Miguel, who dreams of becoming a musician, and somehow ends up in the Land of the Dead.

The film’s official synopsis reads:

“Despite his family’s baffling generations-old ban on music, Miguel dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz (voice of Benjamin Bratt). Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colourful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector (voice of Gael García Bernal), and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.”

In addition to this, a new featurette about the making of the film shows how research trips to Mexico helped to inspire the artists of Pixar, including director Lee Unkrich, in how they designed the look, feel and story of Coco.


Coco is set for release on November 22nd.
