In retrospect, it's kinda surprising that Pixar doesn't employ the song "Bittersweet Symphony" more often in their trailers. I'll give Pixar the benefit of the doubt here since trailers are rarely representative of the movie itself. The film is very much inspired by the Mexican tradition of Dia de los Muertos, a time when the living honor their family members who have passed away. I'm going to have to see a lot more from Coco to separate and elevate it above the underrated 2014 film with a similar theme, The Book of Life.

Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3) directed Coco, which also features the voices of Renée Victor, Ana Ofelia Murguía, Jaime Camil, Sofía Espinosa, Alanna Ubach, Selene Luna, Herbert Siguenza, Alfonso Arau, and Edward James Olmos.

The film boasts a insane talented cast including Gael García Bernal as Hector, newcomer Anthony Gonzalez as Miguel, and Benjamin Bratt as Ernesto de la Cruz, with Jaime Camil, Sofía Espinosa, Gabriel Iglesias, and Cheech Marin in supporting roles. A mystical event takes Miguel to the Land of the Dead, and he teams up with a charming ne'er-do-well skeleton named Hector (Gael Garcia Bernal) to uncover long-hidden family secrets.

What do you think of the latest trailer for Coco? In the Land of the Dead, Miguel and Dante meet Miguel's ancestors - including his great-great grandmother, Mamá Imelda, who implemented the ban.
