Coco - Trailer and Clip


At just 12-years-old, Miguel Rivera is already quite an accomplished guitar player, aspiring to be a world famous musician like his hero the late Ernesto de la Cruz. The only problem is, his family has banned music for many years, and so he can only practise his lifelong passion in secret. When he decides to visit the spirit of Ernesto de la Cruz at his tomb, he is somehow transported to the mythical Land of the Dead after strumming Cruz's magical guitar. Initially terrified, he soon learns the purpose of his journey to the afterlife and he meets a skeletal trickster god named Hector who aids him on his quest to uncover the secrets of Miguel's family's past - and the reason why music has become such a taboo subject.

Directed by the Oscar winning Lee Unkrich ('Toy Story 3', 'Finding Nemo', 'Monsters, Inc.') and Adrian Molina ('The Good Dinosaur') who also wrote the script, 'Coco' is the forthcoming animated adventure from Disney Pixar. Featuring very similar themes to the previously released 2014 animation 'The Book of Life', 'Coco' is also based around the Mexican festival Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead). It will be released in cinemas on November 22nd 2017.

In the second video we get to meet the adorable hairless dog Dante. Just as the little guy thinks he's landed himself a tasty bone for lunch; the bone begins pulling Dante through the streets. Though the force pulling the bone is incredibly strong, Dante will not let go of his tasty prize and it ends up pulling him through markets stores and a cactus patch which leaves the poor pup with a Mexican wrestling mask on and cactus pins all over his body - not that they bother him as Dante still has his mind firmly on food. When the Bone finally comes to rest, Hector the skeleton leans down to restore the bone to his body. At the sight of a skeleton full of bones, Dante's can't help but give Hector's leg a nibble.
