FROM the creators of Finding Dory, Toy Story, and Inside Out comes another movie that's sure to melt your hearts as Disney Pixar debuts its newest movie, Coco, a musical journey on the bond of family history in all SM Cinema theatres beginning November 22.
I will try to make this story not much of a spoiler because I want you to enjoy the movie yourself (it's a must watch for all ages).
While it might seem a movie for the Halloween Season, Coco actually tells a story of a young Mexican boy who grew up in a loving family but refuses to support his desire to be a musician. As he escaped home one night, he stumbled upon dead ancestors who would later make him realize all the reasons why in an unexpected adventure in the land of the dead.
The movie cores on the Mexican tradition, Día de los Muertos or Day of the Dead. Though it sounds like a Mexican version of Halloween, these two annual events differ from each other. Halloween is a dark night of terror and mischief while Day of the Dead festivities unfold over two days in an explosion of color and life-affirming joy. The theme is death, but the point is to demonstrate love and respect for deceased family members.
Seeing my seatmates tear up during the advance screening of the film, Coco is truly the one movie to watch with family or friends for you to feel the spirit of Christmas and appreciate the presence of one another as you share laughter and sad moments throughout the film.
