The first poster for Disney and Pixar’s “Coco” is so simple and perfect

The first poster for the newest Disney and Pixar film Coco was just released and it is so charming. The film, which opens on November 22nd, centers around Miguel, who accidentally ends up in the Land of the Dead and embarks on an adventure with a trickster Hector he meets along the way. The film was inspired by the Mexican holiday Dia de Los Muertos, which is a day in which families honor a deceased family member and support their spiritual journey in the afterlife.

While the first official teaser will be released sometime next week, this poster gives us so much to think about. The poster, which was tweeted by director Lee Unkrich, features a dog, who we presume belongs to Miguel (and or his family), a guitar — which is important since Miguel’s family has banned music — and a skeleton.

At the D23 expo in 2015, Unkrich opened up about the film and how it was inspired by Dia De Los Muertos.

"I'd seen it portrayed in folk art," he explained. "It was something about the juxtaposition of skeletons with bright, festive colors that captured my imagination. It has led me down a winding path of discovery. And the more I learn about Dia De Los Muertos, the more it affects me deeply."


The film has an amazing cast, including Miss Congeniality actor Benjamin Bratt, Mozart in the Jungle’s Gael García Bernal, and newcomer Anthony Gonzalez as Miguel.

While we have to wait another six months until the film hits theaters, we can’t wait to see what the final product looks like and we know it’ll be amazing!
