'Coco' Trailer: Pixar's Love Letter to Mexico Looks Absolutely Stunning

Are you excited for the upcoming film? The latest trailer for Disney/Pixar's Coco is here! Feeling like nobody besides his loyal dog, Dante, and musical idol, Ernesto de la Cruz - his great-great grandfather and cause of the ban - understands him, Miguel seeks refuge at his idol's tomb, only to accidentally ends up in the Land of the Dead. The trailer gives us a longer introduction to Hector, as well as the supernatural creature Pepita, a spirit guide.

The gorgeous new trailer for Pixar's Coco was released this morning and does an outstanding job of further introducing us to this animated love letter to Mexico where an aspiring musician goes on an extraordinary journey through the Land of the Dead in search of the person he looks up to the most. My reservations about a movie that only has a few people of Mexican descent behind the scenes were put to rest by the filmmakers' dedication to research and authenticity - not to mention that adorable dog. Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colourful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events.

"Coco" is the second Pixar release of the year after this summer's "Cars 3".

Golden Globe victor Gael Garcia Bernal gives voice to Hector while Benjamin Bratt is the voice of Ernesto de la Cruz.

Coco hits theaters on November 22 and is directed by Toy Story 3 helmer Lee Unkrich.

There, he meets the charming trickster Hector (Gael Garcia Bernal), who helps him find his deceased family members.
