Disney-Pixar has released a new trailer for its Day of the Dead-themed Coco, revealing a broader range of characters and locales than previously seen.
Coco follows the story of Miguel, who dreams of becoming a famous musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz, despite his family’s baffling generations-old ban on music. The trailer above reveals a spoiler that I don’t recall being part of earlier trailers, which is that de la Cruz is actually Miguel’s great-great-grandfather.
The new trailer also sets up the basic conflict, which is that Miguel has until sunrise to find his great-great-grandpa or he permanently becomes part of the Land of the Dead. He finds him in the trailer, but whether he makes it out of the Land of the Dead appears to be the film’s big question. The last shot of the trailer, which lasts for less than a second, shows Miguel playing the guitar in full skeleton form, so perhaps he doesn’t make it out.
