Pixar are the masters of controlling emotions, so much so that one could easily accuse them of some form of mass hypnosis to control the world and no one would be any the wiser.
The trailer for Coco once again shows how deftly they can pull on your heartstrings to manipulate you into feeling sympathy for protagonist Miguel as he finds solace in the strummings of long dead guitarist Ernesto de la Cruz before, one day, finding himself transported to the Land of the Dead.
It’s when Pixar takes on an original project that their talent shines through (with the possible exception of the Toy Story franchise, because… well, I don’t really have to explain myself there). Coco looks set to be just as emotionally moving as Inside Out and Finding Nemo. You can almost guarantee tears before the final credits roll.
Coco is out in cinemas December 8th 2017!
