Director Lee Unkrich took to Twitter to reveal a brand new poster from Disney•Pixar’s Coco. The film, which centers on the Mexican holiday Día de los Muertos, will have its first trailer released next week.

During the 2015 D23 Expo in Anaheim, I saw a portion of the film in which the main character, Miguel (voiced by Anthony Gonzalez), enters the Land of the Dead for the first time and it was spectacular. Once the world gets its first look at Coco next week, it could quickly become the most anticipated animated film of the year well before its November 22 release.

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 (“Toy Story 3”), co-directed by Adrian Molina (story artist “Monsters University”) and produced by Darla K. Anderson (“Toy Story 3”), Disney•Pixar’s “Coco” opens in U.S. theaters on Nov. 22, 2017.
