COCO Main Character – Miguel
A few weeks ago, I visited Pixar to see 35 minutes of the newest movie, Disney Pixar COCO. It is a beautiful story with an amazingly colorful setting. In Disney Pixar COCO, despite his family’s generations-old ban on music, Miguel dreams of becoming a world-renowned musician and following in the footsteps of his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz.
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, and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history. Directed by Lee Unkrich, co-directed by Adrian Molina and produced by Darla K. Anderson.
