Coco: first trailer for upcoming Pixar movie

John Saavedra Mar 16, 2017

From the director of Toy Story 3 comes Coco. Here's the first trailer...

Pixar has dropped the first trailer for its latest animated venture, Coco, the story of a boy who magically finds himself in the Land of the Dead after playing his movie idol's famous guitar. From the looks of the trailer, this movie looks to be a big homage to the days of classic Mexican ranchera films featuring such staples of the genre as Vicente Fernandez and Antonio Aguilar. The Dia de los Muertos backdrop, then, is the magical element that makes this movie a Pixar film.

Updated: Mexican.. pulp.. noir.. scifi?? awesome! La Pantera Negra

The first feature from director Iyari Werrta which clocks in at 105 minutes, is a fantasy laced noir throwback which, looks utterly stunning, has it's head in the clouds, but it's feet firmly plated on the earth. It has something to do with a "Divine comission", the search for the "black panther", and of course, an alcoholic detective. Clearly, Iyari is one to watch, and with all the talent coming out of Mexico right now (see De día o de noche for one), I'm wondering how much longer it will be before we need a correspondent there.

Translation:

After 50 years still looking for the death of Pedro Infante says it is still alive, and it hires "Nico", an alcoholic detective, who also has a divine commission.
