Disney and Pixar release a new trailer for Coco ahead of the film's fall release date. Since the animation studio's rise to popularity, Pixar has made sure its slate of films features a mix of original ideas and sequels, though recent years have leaned a little more heavily on followups to their previously successful endeavours. After releasing two original projects in 2015 - the wildly successful Inside Out, and the somewhat less successful The Good Dinosaur - Pixar debuted only one movie in 2016, the Finding Nemo sequel Finding Dory, and kicked off 2017 with Cars 3.
Looking ahead, Coco is the last remaining original project on Pixar's announced slate; the only other films are The Incredibles 2 and Toy Story 4 - which are, arguably, very highly anticipated. Plus, Pixar has a handful of dates staked out for 2020 and 2021 that will likely include original projects. As for Coco, the film is poised to be Pixar's big family film during the holiday season at the tail end of 2017. And, in order to continue promoting the upcoming animated feature, a new teaser has been released.

Ahead of the film's late November release date, at the height of the holiday film season, Disney and Pixar have unveiled the third trailer for Coco. The film follows Miguel (Anthony Gonzalez), a young musician who ignores his family's generations-long ban on music and winds up on an adventure in the Land of the Dead.
This latest trailer for Coco dives a little deeper into Miguel's accidental journey to the Land of the Dead, as well as the lesson he will seemingly learn about the importance of family. Unbeknownst to his family, Miguel secretly plays the guitar with hopes of becoming a famous musician, just like his idol/great-great grandfather Ernesto de la Cruz (Benjamin Bratt) - who is at the root of the family's tough relationship with music. By accident, Miguel travels to the Land of the Dead, where he meets Hector (Gael García Bernal) and the two endeavor to help each other.
As evidenced by all the trailers for Coco, Pixar is gearing up to release one of its most colorful animated features to date. With lovable characters in Miguel, Hector, Miguel's dog Dante, and many of the skeletal people Miguel meets in the Land of the Dead, Coco looks to be another hit for the animation studio. Of course, whether it does actually live up to the other successes from Pixar remains to be seen. Reviews and first reactions will likely be hitting the web much closer to the film's release date, but for now, Pixar fans can watch a new trailer for Coco and get ready for the film's November debut.
