Trailer Time: Coco Trailer #1 (2017) “2017’s REAL Pixar Film”

Coco follows a 12-year-old boy named Miguel who sets off a chain of events relating to a century-old mystery, leading to an extraordinary family reunion.

This is pretty much the extent of what we know about Pixar’s non-Cars 3 related film of 2017.  What it has immediately in its favor….is that it is not part of the Cars franchise (for those new to the blog, I am covering Cars 3 the way any sort of media is covering the current presidential administration: there’s hyperbole, lots of facial redness, and there’s a truck involved).  It’s a part of my continuing healing process from having had to watch Cars 2.  I don’t let go of things easily.

From the trailer, it kind of seems like Ratatouille if the rat was a kid and instead of wanting to cook, he wanted to rock…..in the City of the Dead.  It ALSO has going for it, being the first film directed by Lee Unkrich since he made all of male America cry with Toy Story 3, so it is my expert opinion as a person who writes a little-read blog on moviedom….that this is your Pixar film to back this year.  Coco opens October 30, 2017.
