Pixar’s talented filmmakers are ready to deliver their next film, “Coco,” is just over a month. I expect it to be a visual and storytelling delight just as their previous movies.
The movie follows the story of Miguel (voice of Anthony Gonzalez) dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz (voice of Benjamin Bratt), despite a ban on music in his family. Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Héctor (voice of Gael García Bernal), and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.
Pixar has release a new clip from “Coco” where Miguel encounters a Mariachi.
