Disney and Pixar have released the first teaser trailer for "Coco," starring newcomer Anthony Gonzalez as the voice of Miguel, a young boy who finds adventure through his love of music.
The two-minute long video begins with Miguel surrounded by a shrine dedicated to legendary musician Ernesto de la Cruz. The young boy plays his guitar as he watches his idol on a small black-and-white TV, mimicking Ernesto's every string stroke. Miguel then heads on a journey that ends with him in possession of Ernesto's guitar, and after strumming its strings, Miguel is transported to the magical Land of the Dead. As the narrator says, "Never underestimate the power of music."
“Coco” follows 12-year-old Miguel who, despite idolizing musician Ernesto de la Cruz, lives in a shoemaking family which has banned music for decades. Miguel decides to take a trip to de la Cruz’s grave, where he borrows his guitar and accidentally sets off a chain of events related to the Mexican folk story Dia de Los Muertos. The film comes from “Finding Nemo” and “Toy Story 3” director Lee Unkrich, alongside “The Good Dinosaur” writer Adrian Molina (who writes and co-directs the film).
The film stars Gael Garcia Bernal, Benjamin Bratt, Renee Victor and Anthony Gonzalez. It will be released on Nov. 22, 2017.
