The poster showcases Ernesto de la Cruz's guitar leaning against the wall along with some glowing flower petals blowing in the wind (which may remind you of the previously released image showcasing Miguel's big strum).
If you look at the traditional Picado Banner (shown above), you'll notice that Pixar cleverly highlighted moments of Miguel's journey throughout the film. Starting with the light purple banner, the story begins with music being banned from Miguel's family, this is due to Miguel's Great-Great-Grandmother (Imelda) who was left to raise her family on her own after Ernesto de la Cruz abandoned Imelda to pursue his passion of performing.
Speaking of Ernesto de la Cruz, (Miguel's Idol) he can be seen in the blue banner. The green banner features a winged-jaguar which according to Mayan mythology was seen as the ruler of the Underworld and a symbol of darkness. The Jaguar is also representative of power and valor and could represent the power to face one's fears or confront one's, enemies. While we cannot confirm that this is the role this character will take - we are most definitely intrigued by this new addition.
The dark purple banner features what we believe to be Miguel and the skeletal trickster, Hector. The red banner is noticeably harder to visualize. However, it appears to be two skeletal figures - perhaps members of Miguel's family.
Lastly, the pink banner showcases a loving moment between Miguel and his great grandmother "Mama Coco" with blowing flower petals in the background.
Additionally, director Lee Unkrich revealed that the first 'Coco' trailer will release sometime next week.
