I finally got out to see Coco this weekend. I’ve been looking forward to it as lots of people I follow on Instagram and Youtube went to special Disney events to see it so I saw their reactions. Carrie Fletcher described it as the first ten minutes of Up but over and over again. I cry during Dragons Den so I had the tissues at the ready!
Coco it Disney Pixar’s latest installment and sees a young boy trying to follow his dreams of becoming a musician. Unfortunately his family are against it and along follows a colourful adventure on Día de Muertos.
I must admit, about half way through the movie I wasn’t sure about it. It was a definitely a great movie but I wasn’t as swept away as I have been in previous Pixar movies (Inside Out, Up) but by the end i was convinced. I came out singing the songs and just loving the whole style, story and message of the movie. And I only cried once – which is good for me!
It got me thinking about grandparents, great grandparents and further back and how important it is to remember your family. Thinking about it, I don’t even know what my great grandparents looked like. It has made me want to gather pictures of great grand parents, grand parents, aunts and uncles to start a tradition so all family members would be remembered with the hope that I can hand them down to future generations to carry on.
Have you seen Coco yet? Let me know your thoughts!
