A daring (almost) escape

Coco

Posted by Simoa • November 7, 2017

All of the Coco footage and teasers we’ve seen have focused on protagonist Miguel, but today the spotlight falls on Hector, whom the young boy befriends when he’s transported to the Land of the Dead. In this newest clip, we also learn about the rules that govern the Land of the Dead. Hector attempts to leave by crossing the marigold bridge that links the two worlds, but he’s thwarted by the shining petals, becoming submerged in them before he’s taken away by two customs officials. If you’re no longer remembered by the living, you can’t cross over into their world on Dia de Los Muertos. The clip also features a stunning bit of animation, as Hector’s top half separates from his bottom – in midair! Watch it below.

Coco opens on November 22nd.
