As promised, Pixar released their latest trailer for Coco this morning at 9am, and it did not disappoint.
Out of all the trailers so far, this one is the most vibrant, touching, and awe-inspiring. It reveals new plot details but, as ever, only just enough to captivate us while not spoiling the movie. There is a larger focus on music as a plot-point in this trailer, so it’s very fitting that the the music chosen to play during the video is so moving. A cover of “Bittersweet Symphony” plays in the background, its title alone perfectly describing many past Pixar movies. Seeing the stunning visuals and heartwarming character interactions against this choice of music leaves us with no doubt that Coco is soon going to sit very comfortably amongst Pixar’s greats.
Miguel’s dog Dante continues to be incredibly lovable, and it’s great to see how well the characters of Miguel and Hector bounce off of each other.
This is also our first time seeing Pepita in action, and she looks terrifying in all the right ways.
With each new trailer, our excitement for the release of Coco this November 22nd has only grown. We’re really getting the feeling that this movie is going to be special, and we can’t wait.
