Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and with the turkey and stuffing comes Disney Pixar's Coco, opening in U.S. theaters on Nov. 22, 2017. Disney Pixar has released the final trailer for Coco, along with a new Coco photo that features young Miguel (voice of Anthony Gonzalez) alongside his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz (voice of Benjamin Bratt).

Despite his family's baffling generations-old ban on music, Miguel (voice of 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 Héctor (voice of Gael García Bernal), and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel's family history.

Coco, which was once described as Pixar's first musical, features an original score from Oscar-winning composer Michael Giacchino (Up, Rogue One), a song by Oscar winners Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez (Frozen), and additional songs co-written by Germaine Franco (Dope, Shovel Buddies) and co-director Adrian Molina. Also part of the team is musical consultant Camilo Lara of the music project Mexican Institute of Sound, as well as cultural consultants Lalo Alcaraz, Marcela Davison Avilés and Octavio Solis.

Anderson (Toy Story 3), Disney Pixar's Coco opens in U.S. theaters on Nov. 22, 2017.
This trailer comes just a few days after the actual Day of the Dead holiday that is depicted in this animated adventure. Coco is the only movie slated for wide release on Wednesday, November 22, the day before the Thanksgiving holiday, while a pair of limited release titles, Focus Features' Darkest Hour and Bleecker Street's The Man Who Invented Christmas will also arrive on that date.
