NEW PIXAR TRAILER RELEASED!

"WE ARE ALL APART OF THOSE WHO CAME BEFORE" --COCO

Imagine at a time of mass deportation of Mexican immigrants and building a wall at the Mexico border to make a major movie feature with an entire Spanish cast and set in Mexico! This is what Pixar, yes Pixar, has done.

This is astonishing news totally caught me off guard.

I am excited. Because the Bible teaches, "From one man he made all the nations (Acts 17:26a)." And that we are all children of the same ancient mother (Eve -Genesis 3:2). En otras palaberis, we are all cousins and part of the same family. No wonder the Bible teaches us to "love one another."

Pixar's new animated feature COCO celebrates this truth. In a time of adversity, xenophobia and blatant racism isn't it wonderful this this film should be made? Pixar has trully done a Jesus-thing!

ABOUT THE FILM

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.
