If you love the flair of a good guitar and have the passion to follow your dreams then Disney-Pixar’s latest sensation Coco will definitely be the film for you.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Despite his family’s baffling generations-old ban on music, Miguel (Anthony Gonzalez) dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz (Benjamin Bratt). Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colourful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector (Gael García Bernal), and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.

Directed by Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3) Coco appears to be a very innovative take on the classic heroes journey and what the power of believing in yourself, and your dreams, can accomplish. Coco’s animation looks gorgeous and has been influenced by Mexico’s cultural history, and in particular, its use of Santa Muerte based design elements.
Coco is sure to be great family fun and will be released in cinemas on December 26.
