“Coco” is about Miguel, a boy in a shoe-making family whose great-grandfather abandoned his wife for his passion was music and was never seen again. However, his wife didn’t have time to weep over his sorrow, so she started to make shoes. Now their family has taken that tradition and are strict on their children.

Their family rule is “no music” but Miguel has a passion for music and plays it in secret. One day, Miguel finds out that his great grandfather was the world-famous music artist Ernesto de la Cruz.

He tries to convince his family, but his grandmother didn’t like where Miguel was going so she grabs his guitar and smashes it. Miguel gets upset and runs away. Miguel finds the tomb of the famous Ernesto and takes his guitar, but then Miguel is in another place, a place he doesnt recognize, the land of the dead. Now it’s up to him to find his great grandfather and head back to the living world.

The crew that made this movie explains in a video before the movie begins that it took a long time to make an animated movie like this. One scene even took over 7 million lights.

“They made the movie really colorful and full of joy. They succeeded on how they tried to make the setting so colorful because Mexican traditions are usually filled with color,” my dad said. 

The movie is filled with many lights to make it more lively. Many people liked that about the movie.

How the story was executed was like every other movie made by Pixar. They explain in the introduction of the movie, how the family/crew made it to present day, they get into the problem, they go through the process of trying to get to the solution, a plot twist might happen, and then the problem is solved, and everyone is happy in the end. The main execution is the same. I wished that Pixar would have executed the story differently this time.

In conclusion, the movie was pretty good, but it should have some improvements. Visual aspects of the movie were outstanding, but how the story itself was executed could be better.
