Plot: A spirited 12-year-old boy named Miguel, who comes from a big family in rural Mexico, discovers a generations-old mystery on the eve of Dia de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead. His discovery will forever change his life. Despite his familys baffling generations-old ban on music, Miguel (voice of newcomer Anthony Gonzalez) dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz (voice of Benjamin Bratt). Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector (voice of Gael Garcia Bernal), and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel's family history.

My Movie Review: The movie is imaginative visual treat that capture heart and touches soul):( Coco is my first and only animated movie that I watched this year in cinemas since don't like cartoons this must be a special one cause I made an exception and wasn't let down it's worthy. Day of the Dead is the grandest tradition in Mexico where they remember their love ones who pass away in festive parade wearing skull mask and colorful costume I want to attend one day. You think you know the story just seeing the trailer but you don't there's more that in store. Love the voice of Miguel- cute and enthusiastic one of the reasons that captivate and make the movie watchable while Mama Coco make us cry when she tries to remember her Papa Hector.
My Favorite Lines: "Remember me, though I have to say goodbye / Remember me, don't let it make you cry / For even if I'm far away, I hold you in my heart / I sing a secret song to you, each night we are apart / Remember me, though I have to travel far / Remember me, each time you hear a sad guitar / Know that I'm with you, the only way that I can be / Until you're in my arms again, remember me..."(Singing) "What are you doing? I'm walking like a skeleton. No, skeletons don't walk like that. That's how you walk. No, I don't." "I am terribly allergic. But Dante doesn't have any hair. And I don't have a nose, and yet, here we are." "Look, what I'm trying to say is... is that although you may Never Forgive him, you should NEVER Forget him!!"
