Pixar’s latest animated film “Coco” has just won a Golden Globe for Best Animated Motion Picture at the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards.

 

“Coco” talks about a young boy named Miguel and his passion to be a musician, despite his family’s ban on music.

 

Miguel is desperate to find music in his family history and is taken to the land of the dead to later learn a valuable lesson about family.

 

“Coco” premiered on November 22nd in the United states and according to the New York Times was number 1 in the box office for 3 weeks in a row, racking up 621.7 million USD.

 

The animated film is directed by Lee Unkrich, who first made waves as co-director of Toy Story 2, followed by co-directing Monsters, Inc. and Finding Nemo (Unkrich made his solo directorial debut with Toy Story 3 in 2010) and co director Adrian Molina.

 

“Coco” is a film for the whole family and has been acknowledged because of its mostly Latinx cast and its ability to invoke nostalgic memories that almost anyone of the Latino culture can relate to like “la chancla” and our lovable grandma’s that cant stop feeding us.

 

The movie puts a unique spin on dia de los muertos (the day of the dead) while still respecting the culture and adding new accomplishments to the animation community.

 

“Coco”  was nominated along with “Boss Baby”, “Breadwinner” and “Ferdinand”, for Best Animated Motion Picture.
