It has been a while since a Disney movie has got me teary eyed and Coco did that to me.   It was such an amazing film with vibrant colors, amazing music, but most of all an unforgettable story-line.  Twelve-year-old Miguel  wants to follow his passion and  become a musician like his hero, the late Ernesto de la Cruz. Unfortunately, music has been banned by the boy’s family since the child’s great grandfather ran off to pursue his own musical dreams.   Miguel's family instead wants him to follow in the family footsteps of making and repairing shoes.

During the annual Dia de Muertos festival, Miguel is  accidentally transported to the Land of the Dead, where he gets to meet the spirits of departed family members, as well as de la Cruz himself.  Along the way Miguel learns the true importance of  family. While he has a desire to return home to his own family, he doesn't want to lose focus and forget those family members his family has lost over the years.   A great message throughout this film is that family always come first!
