How Pixar’s ‘Coco’ Honors, Respects, and Celebrates Mexican Culture
  |  @   |  

Pixar’s Coco explores themes of family, culture, and music through Dia De Los Muertos, the Mexican holiday which celebrates and honors family members who have passed on to the afterlife. In the film, Miguel (Anthony Gonzales) is prohibited from playing and listening to music. Despite that, he still strives to become a musician like his idol, Ernesto Del La Cruz (Benjamin Bratt).
