The latest Coco trailer is a symphony of emotions

Coco, Pixar, Trailer

Posted by Joanna • September 13, 2017

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.

Watch The First Teaser Trailer for Coco!

It’s here! Pixar’s love letter to Mexico! Today the studio released the first of many trailers for their upcoming Day of the Dead inspired film Coco. It is certainly fantastic being able to see these characters we’ve merely read about for months finally breathing with life.

From the first few seconds of the footage alone, it’s obvious this film is going to be spectacular in terms of character design, color, setting, and music.

We instantly bond with Miguel, a young aspiring guitarist, as he lights candles in remembrance for Ernesto de la Cruz, a famous Mexican actor and musician. It’s even later hinted that the famous personality might be Miguel’s father – which is fitting because it’s obvious Miguel has a natural talent after he mimics Cruz’s notes on the guitar.

In the trailer, we see how Miguel reaches the Land of the Dead and what this new world and characters within it will look like. We also get to see Dante, the Xolo dog, in action there – as playful as ever as he rolls around a bridge that appears to be constructed out of flower petals.

Suffice to say, we want more and can’t wait until the film is released on November 22nd.

P.S. We need to hear more of Ernesto de la Cruz’s music!!!

Brand New Finding Dory Teaser Trailer Released

On Friday Disney/Pixar released a fun little teaser trailer for their upcoming film Finding Dory.

In the trailer we get to see Dory as her usual forgetful self as she jokingly reads the title of the film. The catchy tune by the Chi-lites, “Have You Seen Her,” plays on in the distance as she swims out of frame. The teaser is a precursor to the theatrical trailer that will be released on Wednesday, March 2nd on the Ellen DeGeneres show. Fittingly enough it was on Ellen herself who released the amazing news that Finding Dory was coming to theaters. Up until now we’ve only seen brief glimpses of Dory, Marlin, and Nemo (in addition to a few new faces), so it will be quite exciting to see some different footage on Wednesday. Be sure to check back in with us then when the trailer is released!

Here’s Your First Look At Finding Dory

Alas! Yesterday the first trailer for Finding Dory premiered with a splash online. Although it was only a teaser trailer, it was enough to give us a glimpse of how Nemo, Marlin, and Dory have been faring since the days of Finding Nemo. By the looks of it, Dory has been living it up with her fantastic new set up in Marlin and Nemo’s neck of the woods. Within the first few seconds of the trailer alone, the score by Thomas Newman swept all of us away with nostalgia. And perhaps those who have been eagerly waiting for the sequel to the first film might’ve shed a few tears… it’s OK – we’re not judging you.

Straight from Pixar, the synopsis of the film is as follows: “The friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish reunites with her loved ones, and everyone learns a few things about the true meaning of family along the way.” For the first time, Dory is able to remember something important (even though she can’t quite pinpoint what that may be just yet) and realizes that she has family somewhere out there in the big blue sea. With Nemo and Marlin at Dory’s side, she sets up on a quest to find her long-lost relatives.

The trailer only confirms how much we all missed the colorful and expertly detailed world under the sea that Andrew Stanton and crew so beautifully depicted twelve years ago. As Dory would say, “just keep swimming.” Only a *few* more months to go until the film is released in cinemas.

New U.S. Theatrical Trailer For The Good Dinosaur Released

Posted by Nia • October 7, 2015

Yesterday Disney/Pixar released a brand new theatrical trailer for The Good Dinosaur, which has gotten practically everyone (if they weren’t already looking forward to the films release) incredibly excited for this colorful prehistoric world to explore.

The premise of The Good Dinosaur has always been simple: “What if the asteroid that destroyed the dinosaurs missed?” Not only does this new trailer give us a closer look at the relationship between Arlo the Apatosaurus and his cave-boy friend Spot, but we also get to hear more dialogue from Arlo. The trailer gives us more of an introduction to Arlo’s family and a plethora of other dinosaurs; including a T-Rex named Butch that Arlo meets on his journey with Spot.

Despite all of the new dialogue, the most thrilling aspect of this trailer is the interaction between Arlo and Spot. One of the best things about animation has always been the ability to tell stories without dialogue. WALL-E eloquently succeeded in telling a simple story about two robots in love without a word (save for the end of the film when the robots are on Axiom). Even the first five minutes of Up was able to tell the entire story of Carl and Ellie’s relationship without the two characters talking to each other. It’s interesting to think about how the storytellers at Pixar will achieve depicting the friendship of a dinosaur and a cave-boy. From the trailer alone, we see that the two characters don’t really speak the same language but based on their physicality, they’re able to communicate with each other.

The possibilities are endless when it comes to The Good Dinosaur and who knows what kind of adventures await us come November 25th. T-Minus 48 days and counting. Are you guys ready?
