Geekery: Pixar’s ‘Coco’ Tells a Heartwarming Story of Family

Never say no to your abuelita’s tamales. The answer is always: “mas por favor.”

Pixar’s latest family friendly offering is almost here. The movie tells the story of Miguel’s (Anthony Gonzalez) dream of becoming a musician like his hero, Ernesto de la Cruz (Benjamin Bratt), despite his family’s generation’s old ban on music. On his journey to attain his dream Miguel finds himself in the Land of the Dead where he meet trickster Hector (Gael García Bernal). The pair journey together to discover the real story of Miguel’s family, and bring music back into their lives.

This latest trailer looks at the heart of the movie: family.

Looks like a good choice to take the entire family to over the Thanksgiving holiday.

Coco hits theaters on November 22nd – tickets are on sale now.

    Hopefully this will be good fun, though the premise seems to be leaning heavily on lazy stereotyping.

      I’m hoping for Grim Fandango, just as Pirates of the Caribbean was close enough to Monkey Island for me 😀

    The movie came out in Mexico last week and I have already seen it. It relies heavily on mexican culture and you will see international figures as well as some less known celebrities. Also it may be a bit whacky at times but its essence about the impprtance of family and music are great. Personally as a mexican I found it as a great homage for all the traditions it represents while having a great animation. I personally give it a 9.5/10 and I hope people abroad get most of the cultural references to enjoy it even more!
