Third Trailer For Pixar's Coco Makes It Look A Lot Less Like 2014’s The Book Of Life

Pixar’s Coco had been coming under fire ever since the first trailers came out since it looked eerily similar to another animated movie that released earlier: The Book of Life. Promotion for the movie goes on, however, and we get a new trailer that highlights on how different this movie is from TBoL.

Check it out:

 

We also have a new synopsis for the movie:

Despite his family’s baffling generations-old ban on music, Miguel (voice of newcomer Anthony Gonzalez) dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz (voice of Benjamin Bratt). Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector (voice of Gael García Bernal), and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel's family history. Directed by Lee Unkrich, co-directed by Adrian Molina and produced by Darla K. Anderson.

Previous trailers for the film have never explained that the main character’s family had a
“generations-old ban” on music, and it looks like the title could be alluding to Miguel’s grandmother who is named “Coco.” Of course, Coco could mean something else entirely, but I think Miguel’s grandma knows something that everyone else doesn’t.

Even if Coco and The Book of Life both have protagonists that love music and journey to the Land of the Dead to meet their family members, it looks like Pixar has fleshed out the world of Coco a bit better, and I’m sure it will be another emotional rollercoaster for the audience once it hits theaters.

Coco comes out Nov. 22.
