Twelve-year-old Miguel dreams of strumming his guitar to stardom like his hero, legendary musician Ernesto de la Cruz. But his family has banned music for generations, for reasons long forgotten. Together with his dog Dante, Miguel travels to the Land of the Dead to seek his idol, meeting a host of strange and skeletal characters and uncovering a hundred-year family mystery along the way.
The latest from the visionaries at Pixar Animation Studios, COCO invites audiences to visit a realm of skeletons and sugar skulls inspired by the Mexican Dia de los Muertos festival. Academy Award-nominated director Lee Unkrich (TOY STORY 3), screenwriter Adrian Molina, and a talented voice cast (including Gael García Bernal, Benjamin Bratt, and Edward James Olmos) breathe colorful, energetic life into Miguel, Dante, and their somewhat deceased new friends.
A dazzling whirlwind of music and imagination for all ages, COCO is a wild and vibrant journey into life beyond death, and the music that drives life.
