My two daughters, ages 7 and 3, fell instantly in love with the story of COCO.  This film is centered around the importance of family, from its beautiful music to the intricate story line.  It reminded me quite a bit of another Disney favorite, Lilo & Stitch, where Lilo and her sister said "Ohana means family.  And family means no one gets left behind or forgotten."

Disney•Pixar’s “Coco

Miguel longs to be a musician like his grandfather, but his family is against it for reasons which I will let you discover.  He goes on an adventure in the land of the dead and learns more about his family and strengthening their bonds in the process.   There are some very emotional moments, especially when Miguel sings to his grandmother Coco.  You'll definitely need some tissues!




My oldest is very interested in learning about different cultures, and she was very fascinated by the traditions of Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).  She asked many questions while watching, so I think a trip to the library to find some more books about the topic is in our future.   She also asked questions about our own family tree.  While her great-grandparents have passed away, we both enjoyed talking about them and helping her get an idea of who they were and how much they are dearly loved.  


It's no wonder that COCO won a 2018 Golden Globe Award for Animated Motion Picture!  It has wonderful themes about family, the importance of honesty, and learning more about your past.  My daughters loved it so much they have asked to watch it many times since we got the blu-ray.  

COCO is available now on digital HD and on Blu-ray/DVD Feb. 27th.  It would make a great gift!
