More characters are featured; Miguel’s family, both living and dead and his spirit guide, Hector. Our hero is front and center, beaming as he holds Ernesto de la Cruz’s guitar. The poster signals a triumphant moment, as the Rivera family looks at their youngest with pride, although music has been forbidden in the family for generations. This lovely poster comes to us just days after the latest Spanish language trailer was released, which you can watch below.
The central conflict, the Rivera family’s aversion to music, is briefly explored in this trailer, for the first time. We’re also treated to a brief glimpse of Miguel’s abuelita, who wields a powerful shoe (chancla, in this case). Hector, Miguel’s spirit guide in the land of the dead, is also given some lines and has a funny interaction with Miguel, who tries his best to imitate a skeleton walk.
Last weekend, I was lucky enough to visit Pixar and watch the first 35 minutes of the film. Some of that footage was included in this trailer, which is the best one so far.
