Why everyone needs to watch Coco

I know what you’re probably thinking, “Coco? But isn’t it a kid movie?” Well yes and no. Coco represents a culture, my culture, and I am so proud that the Directors and Disney Pixar are showing the world my Mexican traditions and family values.

So why is it that you need to see it?

-For those of us that do celebrate “Day of the Dead” It’s a beautiful reminder of celebrating life and our loved ones.

-It will show you and your children a life lesson

-If you are not Mexican, you will learn something about our culture. (Be well rounded, there isn’t anything more ignorant then not knowing about the world)

-You will want to hug your parents/ grandparents even tighter

I can honestly say that I have never cried so much while watching a movie, ok maybe aside from the Selena movie, as I did with Coco. The animations of the film were so real, it felt like I was reliving my childhood. Running around la Plaza and hiding from the lit up torito. I am so in love with my Mexican culture and I am glad someone got it right. This film is a true representation of what the Mexican people stand for…family. Everything we do and everything we are is because of them.

❤️ Until next time,
