I would recommend this movie for all ages but be prepared to have some conversations about death. Kids do pick up on it and it will be a great teachable moment.
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. Directed by Lee Unkrich (“Toy Story 3”), co-directed by Adrian Molina (story artist “Monsters University”) and produced by Darla K. Anderson (“Toy Story 3”).

Pixar does it again. I love their stuff so much. I’m also thrilled to see Disney is sharing more Latinx stories. I’ll definitely have to watch this with my goddaughter.

Aren't Disney movies the best? I'm in the Jude camp and have shed more than one tear watching them over the years. Also, they do such a beautiful job with hard subjects and a movie like this can be a great conversation starter between parents and kids. x
I feel like we have bee waiting forever for this movie to be out. My daughter's keep asking me as they have been promoting it in movie previews for so long. We are so excited to finally get to see Coco soon!
This sounds like such a good movie. Disney Pixar is always a winner with my family. I love that they tackle topics like this too because it really helps to approach it with the kids in a more understandable way.
Karlyn Cruz says
Gah! My son can't wait to watch this! I really thought it was going to come out before Halloween but sounds great and probably sad. Oh no! Makes me want to watch it then!

I questioned the worth of this movie when I saw the previews while watching another movie. Seeing that your kiddos laughed the entire time has me convinced to watch the movie. I need a good laugh.
