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.
Fall, when temperatures dip and trees shed their leaves. This is our favorite time of the year, not only because of the blustery weather but also because it marks the season of holidays and our family’s traditions. These include the viewing of holiday-themed movies and theater visits. 3Below celebrates to see blockbuster films. To celebrate the Mexican tradition known as Día de los Muertos join us for fun as we experience Disney Pixar’s Coco.
The film draws its cultural inspiration from several Mexican variations of the tradition of celebrating Día de los Muertos, a commemoration of deceased loved ones that is practiced by some Latin American indigenous populations, most commonly found in the United States.
Coco is the story of Miguel, a young boy eager to follow his passion for music in a family that—puzzlingly—has banned music for several generations. The title refers to Miguel’s great-grandmother Mamá Coco, whose father is key to the anti-music mystery. This tale unfolds in an unspecified Mexican town on the eve of El Día de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead) as the entire community is preparing to honor their departed loved ones. Miguel finds himself transported to the place of the dead just as the dead are making their way to the land of the living to be with their family and friends. Adventures ensue as this living boy tries to navigate the land of the dead, a visually vibrant and whimsically reimagined illustration of this traditional realm.
Viewers have found Coco to be a powerfully communicated story about the importance of family, community, a sense of belonging, tradition and remembrance.
Party fun, costume contests, guitar playing, and lots of surprises are promised.
