My family and I had the opportunity to see an early screening of Disney-Pixar’s COCO, which comes to theaters this week! Although our movie admittance was covered, no other compensation was received and all thoughts and opinions about the movie are my own.
Despite his family’s baffling generations-old ban on music, Miguel (voice of newcomer Anthony Gonzalez) dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz (voice of Benjamin Bratt). Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector (voice of Gael García Bernal), and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.
- Coco is all about the importance of family. There’s really no better message for kids! I love the focus on remembering and finding out about your ancestors.
- Coco is full of toe-tapping, feel-good music! I can’t wait to get the soundtrack!
- Coco is entertaining and funny for ALL ages. I love finding movies that can hold the attention of kids as well as adults, and this movie delivers.
- Coco encourages everyone to follow their dreams. Miguel has a passion for music, and despite obstacles in his way, he continues to pursue his dreams.
- Like everything Pixar does, the story was unique, enjoyable, and not at all what any of us expected!
My whole family wholeheartedly endorses Coco, and we highly recommend that you see it in theaters this holiday season! We saw the movie in 2D, but it is also available to watch in 3D. I loved the movie as it was, but I’m eager to see how 3D would enhance the experience!
This is definitely a movie we’ll be adding to our home movie collection!
