First trailer for Coco takes you on a journey of music & dead people

Music is a powerful device, so powerful in fact that it can transport you to another world. The newest Pixar movie, COCO, takes that literally by telling the story of a boy named Miguel who, in an effort to prove his musical talents to his music-hating family, is transported to the Land of the Dead. The first trailer has just dropped and along with all the tenderness we see a lot of guitar playing, dead folks and puppy action.

What with Pixar working on a ton of sequels it’s refreshing to know they’re still cranking out original movies like this and INSIDE OUT. The studio is at their best when they’re telling unique, passionate stories, and COCO seems right up that alley. I can already feel this movie tugging on my heartstrings like the strings of a guitar. And yes, I will be sending that into Pixar’s Hallmark cards division.

Go on a journey of music and dead things on November 22.

For Those Comparing It To Book of Life

You do realize that the similarities come from both movies being about the same holiday, right? It's influenced by the Mexican holiday known as the "Day of the Dead", or in Spanish, Dia de los Muertos. The movie was announced at CinemaCon 2012, then designated "Untitled Dia de Los Muertos Project", two years before The Book of Life was released. The stories do not appear to be very similar, but because they share the same holiday setting, there are some visual points of comparison. However,
You do realize that the similarities come from both movies being about the same holiday, right? It's influenced by the Mexican holiday known as the "Day of the Dead", or in Spanish, Dia de los Muertos. The movie was announced at CinemaCon 2012, then designated "Untitled Dia de Los Muertos Project", two years before The Book of Life was released. The stories do not appear to be very similar, but because they share the same holiday setting, there are some visual points of comparison. However, calling it a rip-off of The Book of Life is the same as calling a Christmas movie stolen from another Christmas movie, or claiming one Halloween movie is the same as another. Pixar takes a long time to produce an animated film, so it was released several years after The Book of Life, even though it was announced two years before. Yes, the movie was originally optioned by DreamWorks in 2007, but DreamWorks did not end up producing it due to creative differences. However, that's hardly relevant. This is really about the fact that the similarities lie in sharing the same central holiday, not the same plot.

Cars was just a re-skinned 'Doc Hollywood', and Inside Out was just a rip off of 'Herman's Head'. Pixar makes pretty good films, but they're not the original perfect angels that you think they are.

This looks so-so to me. I thought this movie was mediocre the first time when it was called 'Book of Life'. I'll give the movie a chance when it comes out because it's Pixar, but my hopes are not too high from what I'm seeing here.
