Coco Review

Star Cast: Anthony Gonzalez, Gael García Bernal, Benjamin Bratt, Alanna Ubach, Renee Victor.

Director: Lee Unkrich, Adrian Molina

Coco is a 2017 American computer-animated fantasy film produced by Pixar Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures. Based on an original idea by Lee Unkrich, it is directed by him and co-directed by Adrian Molina. The film's voice cast stars Anthony Gonzalez, Gael García Bernal, Benjamin Bratt, Alanna Ubach, Renée Victor, Ana Ofelia Murguía and Edward James Olmos. The story follows a 12-year-old boy named Miguel who is accidentally transported to the Land of the Dead, where he seeks the help of his deceased musician great-great-grandfather to return him to his family among the living and to reverse his family's ban on music. 


Coco is a story of a young boy named Miguel who want to be musician like such as the celebrity singer Ernesto De La Cruz (voiced by Benjamin Bratt) who became a screen star and recording legend before being crushed to death by a falling bell in 1942. But, sadly Miguel is being bound with the family’s trade: making shoes.

His family have some kind of  betrayal myth. His family labeling being a musician was a futile thing after his great- great-grandfather left the family to persuade his dream to become a musician. However Miguel still pursues his love for singing in spite of his family's ban on music. He stumbles into the Land of the Dead, where he learns about his great-great-grandfather who was a legendary singer and he learn the truth that never been revealed truths of his life in the afterlife he gets stuck for a night.

Unexpectedly brilliant, high on emotions and supremely colourful movie to watch. Coco shows tribute to Mexican culture but more than that it is a universal story about the importance of family while respecting the elderly and remembering the dead. I love the way that Miguel keep passing on the story of his family to the younger generation so that no ofrenda will be left behind.

This movie is classic! totally should watch with family.


Watch or not? : Yes! definitely. It has jokes, and moments to make you go ‘aww’
