What is the movie about?
Accomplished musician, young Miguel dreams of becoming a performer just like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz. Unfortunately, his family has an odd ban on music, that has been passed down through the generations. Despite the family’s objections and 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. Together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.
In addition to the colorful story, we will also be treated to a delightful group of actors, lending their voices and personalities to the film.
COCO opens in theaters everywhere on November 22nd!
