Watching Coco, I couldn't stop thinking about Back to the Future. Both films are about young men who travel to an impossible place and have to solve an issue with their family. Both feature the travelling character fading out of existence, they both play the guitar, both films feature important musical performances -- and both hinge on a photo.

Video: Laughs, drama, music, family -- the latest trailer for Pixar's Coco has it all. While the last few trailers did a great job of hiding much of what Coco is, this new one sets up the story and stakes very directly. The result is more drama than before, but also more humour -- and still plenty of gorgeous visuals. Check it out.
Pixar only released one film in 2016, the hit Finding Dory, but next year they will release two: The sequel Cars 3 and the original film Coco, directed by Toy Story 3's Lee Unkrich. We've known Coco is about the Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos for a while, but now we know the real heart of the story.
