Mexicans in this Disney-Pixar Trailer Sound a lot like Spaniards

With much fanfare, Disney-Pixar on Wednesday released¬†the first teaser trailer of Coco, an upcoming animated film about “a¬†12-year-old aspiring Mexican musician, who embarks on a magical trip in the Land of the Dead.”

While many of the¬†voices in the English-language movie will be done by Mexicans or Mexican American actors (including Gael Garc√≠a Bernal, Anthony Gonzalez and Benjamin Bratt) I¬†couldn’t help but cringe at¬†this other “Spanish”¬†version I found on the Web,¬†one apparently hailing from¬†Spain, which makes all these¬†Mexicans¬†sound a lot¬†like coming out of a Marisol movie.

Coco will¬†hit theaters on November 22, 2017¬†and you’ll be well advised to watch the English-language trailer¬†in this link¬†and NOT the one below.
