3 Things We Learnt From The Movie Coco

Follow Your Dreams

Miguel’s desire to become a musician prompts him to take part in a musical talent show in the hope of walking in the footsteps of his idol. So on the Day of The Dead, that’s what he does -borrows a guitar from the shrine of that greatest singer, Ernesto de la Cruz.  The point is that you shouldn’t give up on what you really want in the face of opposition. Do what makes you happy because then you work at it the hardest.

Your Family Is Forever

Miguel has grown up in a Mexican household where family values and tradition play a very important role. When he enters the Land of the Dead, he gets to meet his extended family, as well as Ernesto and Frida Kahlo. He meets people from his family who have died and learns the real story behind his family history. It’s an ode to family ties on the Day of the Dead – Dia de los Muertos.  This day is meant to illustrate how families celebrate and honour — and remember — their dead loved ones.
