Pixar’s Coco Review: Honor Family & Follow Your Dreams

By November 22, 2017 ,

Disney•Pixar’s COCO is now playing in theaters everywhere and I'm so excited for families to see it. It's a great story about honoring families and following your own personal dreams.

Note: I was invited as media to the movie screening. Disney and Pixar invited me on this all expense paid trip for the Disney*Pixar COCO Event. While I will share different events and activities during the trip, any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.


While I already knew the story of Miguel struggle to play music against the wishes of his family, when I saw the full story unfold I was in tears. Literally. You'll gonna need tissues when you go to see this film.

Without giving to much away, Disney*Pixar COCO really touches on the issue of what makes a family...a family. The connection. Whatever it may be. In this case it music. But really it's more then just music. It's the LOVE, which is the driving force behind it all.

Miguel goes on an amazing journey to discovery WHY his family both loves and hates music. And it's a journey we all can relate to with it's up and downs. And isn't that what loving our family is about? Loving them through good and bad moments?

In the end, Miguel discovers that the love of family can be a powerful thing. And that's why it's so important to honor and celebrate it. A message that perfect as we get into the holiday season surround by family.

So make sure to take your family and see Disney*Pixar COCO now that it's theaters. Hope you can your family enjoys seeing Disney*Pixar COCO as much we my family did!

As you know I visited San Francisco for the #PixarCocoEvent media trip to learn more about the Disney*Pixar COCO film. I learned about

PLUS I screened a few minutes of the movie. More about that later. But all that behind the scene info really got me excited to see the full film. And when I did recently, it was amazing.


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 magically transported to 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”).
