Disney-Pixar New Coco Poster
Wow, this new Coco poster is simply stunning! Don’t you agree? I love all the different cultural references and the seamless way in which the land of the living (on the left) and the land of the dead exchange into each other. If you look closely at the characters., the tree stars with grandmothers. On the living side you have mamá Coco who is holding a photograph. On the day of the dead, altars are made to the memory of family members who have gone before us. You will understand the importance of having the photos at the altar when you watch the movie. On the land of the living set, mamá Imelda also holds and important symbol of the Día de los Muertos celebration. She holds a marigold petal. Marigolds are said to be the bridge. the guide for the dead to cross over for a day and be among the living. There is plenty of symbolism in this poster like the guitar which is at the center of the musical debate in the film. So is Pepita. Pepita is the flying character above Hector’s head (the last of the skeletons) Pepita is an alebrije. While alebrijes are not mytological, they are a very vibrant part of Mexican culture. I will be sharing more about alebrijes with you soon.
Disney -Pixar New Coco Trailer
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. This is what that will look like on screen
After watching 38 minutes of a rough cut of the movie and I can tell you that you will want to buy your tickets for November 22nd when it opens in theaters everywhere. Personally, I could not get enough of Gaelle Garcia who plays Hector and the incredible creation of the land of the dead. It is beyond anything you can imagine. Simply fantastic.
Are you celebrating the Day of the Dead this year watching Coco with your family?
