If you’re looking for the latest Disney news, you’re in the right place! Our family loves Disney movies. This past week, when my family finished watching the Oscar nominations, one of my daughters celebrated that Zootopia had won. My other daughter had rooted for Moana, but was happy for any Disney movie to earn Best Animated Film. You can read all about our fun Oscar-themed party here. Today, Disney Pixar released the brand new teaser trailer for the upcoming animated movie Coco. While my family can’t always agree on Disney movies, we are always happy to watch them.
Disney Pixar Presents Coco
In the feature animated film Coco, you will learn about a boy named Miguel whose family’s generations-old ban on music has not changed his dream of becoming a musician. With a love of guitar, Miguel hopes to become like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz (played by the voice of Benjamin Bratt). Along the way, Miguel ends up in the stunning and spectacular Land of the Dead, where he learns more about his ancestors.
New Trailer For Animated Movie Coco
Children with dreams of becoming musicians or artists can relate to this plot. Although it seems geared towards an older audience than many Disney movies are, the age group it is meant for can find the story meaningful and inspiring. Below, you can check out the trailer.
While my daughters usually get more into the stories of Disney princesses, they both hold a special place in their heart for music. Since their father and grandfather’s guitar collections captivate them, this story will be relatable and enjoyable to them. I love watching my children idolize the role models in their life (instead of professional musicians on television) for their ability to play guitar. This movie will inspire them to play and listen to music together more often.
The only part that I’m not sure will go over with all children is the Land of the Dead. My older daughter – who has learned about the Day of the Dead in her Spanish class – found the trailer interesting. She can’t wait to see the movie. My younger daughter was reluctant to see the scarier parts, and I could see her being especially scared in a movie theater. If you aren’t sure about the more mature elements, it may be better for older children.
Because the movie trailer shows the potential for an uplifting and exciting movie, I can’t wait to see it next fall. As an interesting side note, director Lee Unkrich and producer Darla K. Anderson worked together on 2010’s Oscar®- and Golden Globe®-winning feature Toy Story 3, which is the third highest-grossing animated feature in worldwide box office.
