The Land Of The Dead Gets A Pixar Touch In The First Teaser Trailer For Coco! WATCH!

Filed under: Film FlickersDisney

Pixar fans get hyped!

On Wednesday, the first teaser trailer for the animation studio's latest film, named Coco, dropped — and it already looks incredible. Coco tells the tale of a young boy, voiced by newcomer Anthony Gonzalez, who makes a musical jaunt through the Land of the Dead on Dia de los Muertos.

While this isn't the first movie made about the Day of the Dead, the animated flick's director, Lee Unkrich was determined to "do right" by the culture as he made sure to cast only Latino actors as his stars. Lee explained to EW:

"Toy Story 3, we had this moment where Jessie turns on the boom-box and the Gipsy Kings do a Spanish language version of You've Got a Friend in Me. Which, it turned out, ended up being a real precursor to this movie. The day John Lasseter gave the thumbs up for this movie, I immediately felt this huge weight drop onto my shoulders because I knew that we were doing something different than we had ever made at the studio and that for the first time, we were going to have this enormous responsibility to do right by this culture and not lapse into stereotype or cliché."

Hear! Hear! In addition to Gonzalez, Benjamin Bratt and Gael García Bernal also voice characters in this soon-to-be hit.

Be sure to ch-ch-check out the teaser trailer for yourself (above) AND mark your calendars for the movie's release date, November 22!

Right on, Benjamin Bratt!

The former Law & Order actor is not pleased because he feels as though he's been overlooked professionally because of Latin roots!

He says:

"What I'm troubled by is, you cannot name a brown-skinned Latino male who can get a film green-lit. There isn't one. Why not? It still seems we are treated like an exotic other."

We completely agree!

But don't be too down, bb, you've done pretty all right for SEKSI self!!

Thoughts??
