Disney/Pixar released a new clip today for their upcoming animated film Coco. In the clip, we get a brief look into the rules of the world of Coco’s Land of the Dead. We are introduced to Hector (Gael Garcia Bernal) who is trying to visit his family. However, because his family does not have a photo of him on their ofrenda, he is not permitted to cross the marigold bridge and exit the Land of the Dead.
The official synopsis for the film is below:
Despite his family’s baffling generations-old ban on music, Miguel (voice of newcomer Anthony Gonzalez) dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz (voice of Benjamin Bratt). Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself magically transported to the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector (voice of Gael García Bernal), and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.
Disney Pixar’s Coco is co-directed by Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3) and by Adrian Molina (story artist for Monsters University) and produced by Darla K. Anderson (Toy Story 3).
The voice cast consists of Anthony Gonzalez, Gael Garcia Bernal, Benjamin Bratt, Edward James Olmos, Alanna Ubach, Selene Luna, Alfonso Arau, Herbert Siguenza, Octavio Solis, Gabriel Iglesias, Cheech Marin, and Blanca Aracelli.
