Disney-Pixar has officially released the second trailer for their upcoming animated film, Coco.
Since the first trailer premiered back in March, the excitement for Coco has taken off, especially considering that it is the only non-sequel in development by the company. The second trailer gives a better glimpse at the Land of the Dead, its inhabitants, and Miguel’s journey into this other world. As the trailer’s narrator says, “No living person has ever visited their world … until now.” The trailer also invites us all on a journey “that connects us all.”

Co-directed by Lee Unkrich and Adrian Molina, the film features the voice cast of Benjamin Bratt, Gael García Bernal, Renée Victor, and Anthony Gonzales. Here’s the official synopsis:
Coco follows the secret musical ambitions of 12-year-old Miguel (Anthony Gonzalez), who resides in a lively, loud Mexican village but comes from a family of shoemakers that may be the town’s only music-hating household. For generations, the Riveras have banned music because they believe they’ve been cursed by it; as their family history goes, Miguel’s great-grandfather abandoned his wife decades earlier to follow his own dreams of performing, leaving Imelda (Renée Victor), Miguel’s great-grandmother, to take control as the matriarch of the now-thriving Rivera line and declare music dead to the family forever.
But Miguel harbors a secret desire to seize his musical moment, inspired by his favorite singer of all time, the late Ernesto de la Cruz (Benjamin Bratt). It’s only after Miguel discovers an amazing link between himself and De la Cruz that he takes action to emulate the famous singer and, in doing so, accidentally enters the Land of the Dead.
In the beautiful underworld, it’s not long until Miguel encounters the souls of his own family — generations’ worth of long-dead but no less vivacious Rivera ancestors, including great-grandmother Imelda. Still, given the opportunity to roam around the Land of the Dead, Miguel decides to track down De la Cruz himself. He teams up with another friendly (and skeletal) spirit — a trickster named Hector, voiced by Gael Garcia Bernal — to find De la Cruz, earn his family’s blessing to perform, and return to the Land of the Living before time runs out.
Coco hits theaters November 22, 2017.
