I liked this 2018 fiction cartoon DVD. It is 105 minutes long. It is good for all ages. Despite his family's baffling generations-old ban on music, 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 following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector, and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel's family history. Miguel (M) finds out Hector (H) really wrote the song Ernesto (E)took the credit for. E poisoned H to get the song. M finds out H is his real great great grandfather. H helps his grandmother remember H. M learns how important The Day Of the Dead is to the dead.

Pixar Studios score one of their greatest hits with this gigantic candy box of a film that draws its inspiration from such diverse sources as Mayan mythology and medieval poetry (Miguel is guided by a street dog namd Dante…wink wink!). Exploding off the screen in every colour imaginable Coco’s animators start small—Miguel’s little village is cartoon quaint without being cliché—and then outdo themselves to create a retro netherworld resembling an infernal Disneyland on acid. Houses in every rainbow hue perch atop each other while antiquated streetcars fly through the air and countless twinkling lights illuminate the sky, occasionally coalescing to form a grinning skull. The dead themselves, culled from Latino folk art, are exuberant stacks of bones in period costumes with a shock of hair here, a dab of make-up there, and rib cages like crazy xylophones as they cavort about, occasionally removing an arm to make a point or juggling a head suddenly come loose while psychedelic spirit animals slither, fly, or lope in and out of neon alleyways. Miguel’s own forebears, a slapstick collection of dour women and browbeaten men, seem determined to keep him from his goal leading to a few welcome twists and revelations. A visual treat for sure, complimented by a lively musical score (including the Oscar-winning song “Remember Me”), but the onscreen fireworks are tempered by an intelligent script and several intimate moments which tug at the heart as they stress the importance of family ties and following one’s dream. Will Miguel’s attempt to find the truth about his family’s roots end in disaster? Will Héctor’s dream of visiting his estranged daughter in the Land of the Living come true (the dead have to be REMEMBERED in order to exist)? And what secrets does Miguel’s wizened old great-grandmother hold in her dementia-wracked mind? A true multi-generational hit and sure to be one of Pixar’s crowning achievements.

This is terrific movie! Its quite coherent for its audience: its characters face decisions and change, the plot progresses and has some huge plot twists, and the narrative develops without a heavy hand. Its visually amazing!

Disney's done it again-made the perfect family film that teaches an inspiring message. Coco shows the importance of family, honoring your culture, and always being yourself. A must-see for families of all ages!

Definitely one of Disney's best of late! The charming and not-entirely-predictable storyline makes for one heck of an animated flick. Easy five out of five .

This was delightful! I honestly wasn't sure what to expect from an animated film that focuses on death, but the overall tone of the film is lighthearted. The story is engaging, the characters are fun, the visuals are charming, and the music is catchy. (My brother literally paused the DVD so he could go grab his guitar and play along at one point.) It is also interesting to see Pixar exploring a non-European folklore. I highly recommend it.

This is a wonderful animated film. The visuals and the imagery are stunningly beautiful. I loved the look and vivid colours in the film. The music in the film is great. I also really liked the storyline about family connections. It was a great adventure story, a celebration of life and death, a tribute to music and a story about the importance of family and also about being true to yourself. This is a great film for all ages. Yet another triumph from Pixar.

Many quotes in IMDb already and thanks to those contributors. Here is my favorite and an unexpected jargon from mijo to papi:

Miguel: [to Héctor] A minute ago I thought I was related to a murderer! You're a total upgrade!
[Héctor gives Miguel an annoyed look]

Héctor: [sings] Remember me, though I have to say goodbye / Remember me, don't let it make you cry / For even if I'm far away, I hold you in my heart / I sing a secret song to you, each night we are apart / Remember me, though I have to travel far / Remember me, each time you hear a sad guitar / Know that I'm with you, the only way that I can be / Until you're in my arms again, remember me...
