Disney•Pixar’s Coco - The Movie

Disclosure:  My family and I were provided with free screening passes for this movie.  No other compensation was received.  

Last week we had the opportunity to take our family to see the upcoming new release Disney's Coco.  I am, honestly, having trouble finding words to describe this movie....words that this movie deserves.  

Disney really out did itself, the emotions, the characters, the beautiful colors, the culture....oh so much goodness!  I believe that Coco let us into a whole other culture and see the importance of family, even after death.  The music in the film was great as well and I felt like the movie went so fast, I wanted more Coco!  But that just shows how great it really was.  

We took my parents and also the kids.  Teagan is 5 and Jude is 7, Teagan laughed and loved the whole movie.  Jude, our very sensitive kiddo, cried.  Now let me be honest, all of the adults in our group also cried, but Jude, he balled, like a total meltdown at the end of the movie.  He kept telling us that he loved the movie but he thought it was so sad but also happy sad.  Jude felt the true emotions and that makes me so happy for him, he is so wise and caring.  

I would recommend this movie for all ages but be prepared to have some conversations about death.  Kids do pick up on it and it will be a great teachable moment.  

About Coco:

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. 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”). 

Disney•Pixar’s “Coco” opens in U.S. theaters on Nov. 22, 2017.  Add this film to your Thanksgiving break to do list for sure! 

Will you be seeing Coco when it comes out in a few weeks?

  1. I am so eager to see this movie! It looks so good and Disney Pixar rarely lets me down. The imagery for this film will be incredible - I can feel it!

  2. Pixar does it again. I love their stuff so much. I’m also thrilled to see Disney is sharing more Latinx stories. I’ll definitely have to watch this with my goddaughter.

  3. Aren't Disney movies the best? I'm in the Jude camp and have shed more than one tear watching them over the years. Also, they do such a beautiful job with hard subjects and a movie like this can be a great conversation starter between parents and kids. x

  4. I feel like we have bee waiting forever for this movie to be out. My daughter's keep asking me as they have been promoting it in movie previews for so long. We are so excited to finally get to see Coco soon!

  5. This sounds like such a good movie. Disney Pixar is always a winner with my family. I love that they tackle topics like this too because it really helps to approach it with the kids in a more understandable way.

  6. Gah! My son can't wait to watch this! I really thought it was going to come out before Halloween but sounds great and probably sad. Oh no! Makes me want to watch it then!

  7. I questioned the worth of this movie when I saw the previews while watching another movie. Seeing that your kiddos laughed the entire time has me convinced to watch the movie. I need a good laugh.
