Coco from Pixar

One of the most enjoyable memories of this summer was watching Coco from Disney and Pixar with my adult son. While I unfortunately did not see it on the big screen, I still loved seeing it in my living room.

Coco is an enchanting tale that mixes Mexican culture especially in regards to the Day of the Dead, as well Mexican music and dance.

The tale is of a little boy – Miguel – who is a born a musician in a family where it is forbidden. There is a story there of course: Miguel’s great-great-grandfather, a dashing musician walked out on the family to pursue music.

This left the family behind to live their lives as simple shoemakers. The huge hole that the loss of the father created caused so much pain that Miguel’s abuelita (grandmother) forbids him or any of the rest of the family of ever enjoying music.

The movie makers worked hard to create true to life magic. They filmed a working cobbler to provide the basis of Miguel’s family’s shoe shop, as well as checking with Mexican guitar makers for the guitars.

Part of the fun was that Pixar is located close to our home, and my son knew one of the animators as a fellow classmate. I got to see how artists from his school created something so well-known and timeless!

Day of the Dead is the Mexican equivalent of Halloween. It is full of mystery and culture. And now every Day of the Dead I know I can celebrate it by watching Coco from Pixar.

I found Coco to be delightful in so many ways. It is perfect to teach about Mexican culture, great for this time of the year with Day of the Dead, and just such a family movie.

It is so rich and artistic that it is a pleasure to watch.

People have different tastes in movies, so it not often that you can suggest a movie that almost everyone will love.

But such a movie is Coco – full of music, family love and great art.
