Gael García Bernal and Benjamin Bratt are among the least experienced musical performers in the ensemble cast of “Coco.” But they own some of the film’s biggest sonic triumphs. Here’s how it all came together.
The way García Bernal sees it, "Coco," a heartfelt and charming story that celebrates Mexico's Día de los Muertos traditions, is exactly the type of film young Mexican-Americans will enjoy as a counter to the president's vilification of the country's citizenry and emigrants.
Conceived as a vibrant celebration of Mexican culture, studio's 19th feature is first to seriously deal with deficit of nonwhite characters in its films.

Coco is the film that Disney-Pixar is offering up this Thanksgiving and it will remind you of the 2014 Guillermo del Toro-Jorge R. Gutiérrez pair-up The Book of Life, which bowed from Fox. Coco is also a 3-D animated family film that features La Muerte or Day of the Dead as its storyline. Day of the Dead is a Mexican and Latin American holiday honoring those who have passed.
Disney’s Pixar has a new movie coming out called Coco, and Conan host Conan O’Brien told his audience he was not too happy about the title.
Like most dogs, Dante likes bones — but because he lives in the supernatural fantasy world of Pixar’s Coco (in theaters Nov. 22), those bones don’t always like him back. The endearingly goofy Xolo, aka Mexican hairless dog, is the star of Dante’s Lunch — A Short Tail, the new Pixar short premiering exclusively on Yahoo Movies. From what Unkrich says, Dante is one of many unique and compelling characters in Coco, Pixar’s fantasy film about a young Mexican boy named Miguel (voiced by Anthony Gonzalez) who goes on an extraordinary journey into the land of the dead.
Pixar missed out on an Academy Award nomination for last year’s Finding Dory, but at least the Disney-owned animation powerhouse could comfort itself with the $486 million domestic haul of its sequel to 2003’s Finding Nemo, making it 2016’s second-highest-grossing hit. In 2017, the studio once again aims for critical and commercial triumph with Coco, its first venture set south of the border. When Miguel decides to try out his hero’s guitar, however, he’s magically transported to the Land of the Dead, a sumptuous spiritual realm where people have skulls for faces.
Inspired by Mexico’s Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), the film will tell the story of a 12-year-old Mexican boy who takes a mystical, musical journey into his family’s past. As reported by Entertainment Weekly‘s Marc Snetiker, Coco will introduce us to Miguel Rivera (voiced by newcomer Anthony Gonzalez), who dreams of becoming a musician, but his family forbids it. The Riveras’ rule against music goes back to Miguel’s great-great-grandmother Imelda, who was abandoned when Miguel’s great-great-grandfather decided to pursue his musical dreams.
