In ‘Coco,’ Family is Everything

Miguel helps Mama Coco remember in 'Coco.'

Miguel helps Mama Coco remember in ‘Coco.’

New Disney Film About Family, Life, and Remembering

by Sandra Olmsted

Director Lee Unkrich’s animated film Coco portrays the Mexican holiday of Día de Muertos as a celebration of family love. However, 12 year-old Miguel (voice of Anthony Gonzalez) isn’t feeling very loved because his secret love and talent for music has been discovered by Miguel’s grandmother, Mamá Imelda (voice of Alanna Ubach). Because his great-great-grandfather abandoned his great-grandmother Mamá Coco (voice of Ana Ofelia Murguía) and her mother to become a troubadour, music is never allowed in the extended family’s home or shoemaking business. During the preparations for Día de Muertos or Day of the Dead, Miguel discovers that his great-great-grandfather had a guitar that is identical to the one owned by his idol Ernesto de la Cruz (voice of Benjamin Bratt). The photo with the guitar in it was torn and folded to remove the face of Coco’s father by her mother, who started the shoemaking business and banned music forever. Fortunately, Unkrich and his music-loving creative team created an intricate musical tapestry for Coco, which echoes with heartfelt marimba, mariachi and cumbia tunes.
