The Land of the Dead beckons in Pixar's new movie!

'Coco' Trailer: Heart and History Cloaked in Vibrance

But it's particularly apt for Coco, a new adventure about a young boy, Miguel (Anthony Gonzalez), who just wants to become a musician, like his great-great grandfather before him.

Coco is bringing the living even further into the land of the dead.

Despite his family's baffling generations-old ban on music, Miguel (Gonzalez) dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz (Bratt).

First of all, a movie that claims to celebrate the music and culture of Mexico can most definitely do better with its trailer's musical selection than a non-Spanish cover of 90s Brit-pop/rock band The Verve's "Bittersweet Symphony".

Check out the new Coco trailer below.

While there seem to be a number of striking similarities to The Book of Life, another animated film which bore similar themes to those of Coco, we can't help but think Unkrich and Molina have something much more special tucked up their sleeves with this one.

After talking to a photo of his late family member, Miguel and Dante are transported to the Land of the Dead. 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.

Coco is set for release on November 22nd in the States and on January 18th in the UK.
