We saw Coco on Wednesday. It was f*cking fantastic.
I can’t tell you how excited I am that a huge studio like Disney/Pixar spent years, and hundreds of millions of dollars making a movie that celebrates another culture so respectfully and thoughtfully. I’m even more excited that they made a movie about a culture and holiday that I teach. Coco will definitely be a part of my curriculum every year.
If you see one kids’ movie during the holidays, let it be Coco. I promise, you won’t regret it.
Here are some awesome reviews by Mexican-American and Latino critics. If these don’t convince you to see Coco, I’m not sure what will.
