Pixar's latest film "Coco" just revealed its first trailer. This latest promo gives fans a look into the Land of the Dead.

According to a report, "Coco" is an all-Latino voice cast film. The story focuses on the life of Miguel who dreams of being a famous musician someday. He visits the grave of his idol musician Ernesto de la Cruz (Benjamin Bratt). He then borrows the guitar that is hanging on the grave. Miguel then is journeyed into the Land of the Dead as the story moves on.

"Coco" is directed by Lee Unkrich who also did "Toy Story 3." Unkrich shared that the real precursor towards the movie is the end of "Toy Story 3." It can be recalled that at the end of the film, Jessie turns on the boom-box. The Gypsy Kings then played a Spanish-language version of the song "You've Got a Friend In Me."

Unkrich also noted that when "Coco" was being decided, there was a big responsibility in making the film possible. It is a different representation and the team needs to do it without any biases especially with the things currently happening in society about discrimination. The great challenge for production is to make the film not stereotypical or cliché.

In the meantime, the events in "Coco" also happen during the Day of the Dead. Miguel's journey in the film will be challenging since he will meet most of his dead relatives. There also will be a lot of music in the film.

Meanwhile, it is indicated that Miguel's family has banned music for a long time. He will be struggling to fight for the one thing that he loves to do in "Coco." For all the years, Miguel does not know why his family has banned music until he went on a journey to the Land of the dead that he found out the truth.

"Coco" is set to air on Nov. 22.
