Each year on Thanksgiving weekend it is a tradition for our family to all go see a movie together. We often host Thanksgiving lunch at our home for our extended family and after eating we all head to the local theater together. Sometimes we take up an entire row at the movie theater, our family is big! This Thanksgiving I already know what is on our must-see list. Disney Pixar Coco opens this Thanksgiving and we cannot wait.
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.
It is fitting that this film taking place in the Land of the Dead opens shortly after the Day of the Dead holiday. Look at the beautiful colors in these film shots.
The scenes are so vivid and colorful. The film looks so warm and lively, pun intended.
Can you imagine a world where music is banned by your family? How about being transported to a place where you can play freely, visit your old relatives, and have a blast? Add Disney Pixar Coco to your list of movies to see this fall!
