From the moment the music starts, Pixar is telling its audiences that they are in for something new, something inspiring, and culturally beautiful. That doesn’t even really begin to describe what a wonderful film Coco is, but by the time the end credits are finished, it will be hard not to notice how many tears have already been shed. Pixar’s latest animated film is a profoundly beautiful celebration of culture, family, and music, which is very important at a time when politics have painted the subjects as criminals. Here we see characters of Mexican heritage, and even though the film is animated and the setting is fictional, everything about it feels entirely human. Check out the full review of Coco here below.
Disney and Pixar have released the final spirited trailer for Coco, Lee Unkrich and Adrian Molina‘s computer animated film based on Dia De Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead when translated into English. The film is a celebration of the Mexican holiday which remembers those who have passed on to the afterlife.
Now with this final trailer, we are getting a better look at how Pixar’s latest honors diversity and culture. Check out the latest trailer below.
It’s almost hard to find a “bad” Pixar film. Even their weakest efforts have some very likable qualities, and almost every film is just gorgeous to look at. But when it comes to Coco, the animation studio has really outdone themselves. The latest trailer is full of vibrant colors and emotional musical pieces that really get at the heart of the film’s plot, which follows a young boy named Miguel who, desperate to become an accomplished musician like his idol, finds himself in the land of the dead during Mexico’s celebrated Dia De Los Muertos or Day of the Dead. A love for family and music sing true in what is obviously a love letter to Mexico.
