Watch The Teaser Trailer For Pixar's Coco

The new teaser trailer for Pixar's Coco is all about following your dreams. The movie, set to hit theaters Nov. 22, follows 12-year-old Miguel (newcomer Anthony Gonzalez), a young boy from a shoemaker's family who dreams of becoming a musician like his idol, the late Ernesto de la Cruz (Benjamin Bratt), despite his family having banned music for generations. As shown in the teaser, when Miguel goes to retrieve de la Cruz's guitar, he ends up transporting himself to the Land of the Dead, where he goes on an adventure to find out his real family history.

The teaser focused mostly on Miguel's relationship with de la Cruz, who he watches on television and plays his guitar along with. "You know that feeling like there's a song in the air and it's playing just for you?" de la Cruz asks. Miguel clearly does, as his relationship with music is highlighted in the trailer (along with some hints at what seems like an awesome soundtrack). The trailer also talks about the importance of dreaming big, with de la Cruz and Miguel saying together, "No one was going to hand me my future. It was up to me to reach for my dream, grab it tight, and make it come true."

Coco, which was inspired by the Mexican holiday Dia de Muertos, draws its roots from a classic Pixar franchise: Toy Story 3. According to co-director Lee Unkrich, the story has its roots in the end of the threequel, when Jessie turns on a radio and hears a Spanish version of "You've Got a Friend in Me." "It turned out [that] ended up being a real precursor to this movie," Unkrich told Entertainment Weekly, adding that, while the movie isn't "a break-out-into-song musical," it does feature a story "set against the backdrop of musical performance."

The film's other stars include Gael Garcia Bernal, Renee Victor, and Ana Ofelia Murguia, who lead an entirely Latino voice cast. This move was part of Pixar's desire to make a culturally authentic film, an effort which also included frequent visits to Mexico for story artists, production designers, and even the sound crew. "This is a story we want to share with the world, but it's also been particularly important to us that when the Latino community sees the film, that it resonates and it feels like we got it right, and that's what we're really trying to do," said Unkrich. "We all feel the gravity."

Adrian Moina (Monsters University) wrote and co-directed Coco with Unkrich. While we wait for the film to rock its way into theaters, see the hidden details in Pixar movies that you may have missed.
