What’s the film about?
The film follows young Miguel who, despite his family’s generations-old ban on music dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol Ernesto de la Cruz. Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colourful Land of the Dead. After meeting a charming trickster named Héctor, the two new friends embark on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.
Featuring the voice talents of Anthony Gonzalez, Gael García Bernal, Benjamin Bratt and Alanna Ubach, Coco is the first film with a nine-figure budget to feature an all-Latino principal cast. On its release, the film won two Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song (“Remember Me”). It also won Best Animated Film at the BAFTA Awards, Golden Globe Awards, Critic’s Choice Movie Awards, and Annie Awards.
