No Disney Princess in this one.
Despite his family’s generations-old ban on music, young Miguel dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol Ernesto De la Cruz. Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead. After meeting a charming trickster named Héctor, the two new friends embark on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.
Day of the Dead has long been an important part of Mexican culture. On that day, people commemorate their deceased relatives. It’s about a boy who visits the City of the Dead, where his ancestors live. The movie has some of the most impressive animation that I’ve seen.
Coco is another impeccable fusion of first-rate storytelling. Crafted with passion, precision & perseverance, it is an exquisite ode to family & remembrance and a loving tribute to Mexican culture & folklore. This is a stunning work of art. It’ll move you from happiness to tears, from memories of the past to the joy of the future. To the joys and pains of being alive. To watch Coco is to love Coco, and to remember the Cocos in your life that are no longer among us.
