Miguel, a young aspiring musician, dreams of following in the footsteps of his idol Ernesto De La Cruz, despite his family’s baffling generations-old ban on music. Miguel ultimately teams up with charming trickster Héctor on an extraordinary journey through the land of the dead to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history. It’s a spectacular celebration of family and togetherness.

For a look inside our “Coco” event, check out the video above. And tell us in the comments section below what you loved most about the film. Disney•Pixar’s Coco is now playing in theaters in 3D.


  • Disney Pixar took animation, filming, and storytelling to a whole new level with Coco. This film is very relatable for many of us in terms of aspirations, culture, stereotypes, and most importantly the value of FAMILY. Go watch it if you haven’t! My family is the one featured on the Disney Parks Blogs video above where I talk about remembering family now and the family who are not here anymore. Thank you Disney Parks Blogs for the advanced screening invitation.

  • We just saw Coco last night! We really enjoyed it. I was a bit confused because I did not realize until late in the film that Coco was the great grandmother and not the little boy. I thought it was odd that someone named Miguel was called Coco. We have a friend named Marco that we have always called Coco. I think I was hung up on that. The song “Remember Me” was touching, but did not quite grab me liked I’d hoped. My daughter was teary eyed from it. I would have liked to have heard more of it in Spanish. I think the fact that I missed who Coco was until toward the end had me confused. We still loved it though.
