Disney has done it again. The latest Pixar movie “Coco” is glorious from the storyline to the animation. After anxiously waiting in the Latino community for an accurate and beautiful feature film and six years in the making, “Coco” shattered expectations.

While the feature film is considered a “kid movie” by the media, there are themes that anyone of any age can comprehend. even as we age, we learn that forgetting is just as bad as death and memories are what keep relationships alive.

There are heart wrenching and heartwarming moments alike and the scenery for the Land of the Dead is nothing short of breathtaking. And the tastefully traditional music, from the sweet “Remember Me” to the Techno Cumbia-Reggaeton mix at De la Cruz’s party, is pure perfection.

Aside from its fabulous plot and animation, “Coco” has accomplished something extraordinary: it has represented Mexican culture with honest and artistic reality, without a drop of stereotyping humor in sight. In the entire film, there was not a moment when a cactus, a drunk and lazy man, or crossing-the-border jokes had screen time. Pixar has introduced a new way of describing Mexicans in a truthful, humanizing way.

Every second of the 105 minute movie, from the opening Disney logo with the classic “When You Wish Upon a Star” performed in Mariachi band fashion, to the plethora pictures of the passed loved family members of the animators in Disney’s own ofrenda, is spent in complete awe, wonder and bliss.

Bravo, Pixar.
