Coco Trailer Teases All The Pixar Magic You Could Want

Pixar has positioned itself as the leading animated storyteller in Hollywood, but no matter how many films dazzle us and become instant classics, each new film is met with skepticism. That fact alone speaks volumes about the kind of efforts Pixar undertakes, and is ultimately why they are so good at what they do. When you first hear about the basic premise – Cars, Brave, Up, Inside Out – they sound screwy. There’s just another level of imagination in play when you decide that instead of working up a pitch that has everyone reacting with, “That sounds brilliant!” you look for things that will make people say, “Wait. What now?”

Coco wasn’t really any different when it was first announced.

We finally have a bit more to explore in a new trailer for the film, and while it doesn’t give us a lot of detail on where exactly things are headed, we at least get a good look at the general idea.

Miguel (Anthony Gonzalez), as we had seen before, is magically transported to the land of the dead, and now we see him being brought together with his relatives and trying to get back to the land of the living. We also get a few more notes on the rest of the cast, which is fantastically impressive. And, we get a little better look at the artistry involved in this gorgeous world.

You could go on for days about the cast in this one, but the film includes: Gael García BernalEdward James OlmosBenjamin BrattAlanna UbachGabriel IglesiasCheech Marin, and many more.

One of the best things about the trailer is that even without giving anything away, you know there’s a darker turn somewhere around the corner. It’s all pretty lights and magical splendor on display here, and you get a couple of the cute and funny moments, but it’s somehow lingering in the air that things are going to get a bit hairy for Miguel.

Take a look at this one above, and make sure you let us know what you think.
