Take a look at Pixar's beautiful new movie 'Coco,' which explores the afterlife

Pixar’s newest film, “Coco,” follows the journey of aspiring 12-year-old musician Miguel, as he makes his way through the Land of the Dead.

Miguel, along with his canine sidekick Dante, end up being transported to the Land of the Dead on Dia de los Muertos — also known as the Day of the Dead — a Mexican holiday that honours friends and family members who have passed away.

Together they find themselves in the company of Hector, who leads them on an adventure that reveals some of Miguel’s family secrets.

“Coco” will hit theatres on November 22, and Disney has released five photos of the film to give viewers an idea of what’s to come.
