Disney Pixar’s Coco is Available on BluRay

Coco was a movie that my family and I watched a little after it came out and enjoyed more than we anticipated. The colors. The imagery. The storyline. I’m not sure why I was so surprised to see the way that I reacted inside the movie theater at an animated film. Today is a good day because I can now cry in the comfort of my own home without fearing that someone will hear the snorts. It’s that beautiful y’all. 

The movie is a peek inside the life of Miguel, who is a child obsessed with music after his great-great grandmother banishes music of all kinds when her husband leaves to play with a band and never comes back. She then starts a shoe-making business and it becomes the family thing. 

And if you think that is the gist of the movie, then you would be wrong. This movie is all about determination, realization and forgiveness that so many families have dealt with. It doesn’t use Dia de los Muertos as a prop, but as a vehicle to tell this beautiful story and have you enamored the entire duration of the film. 

By the time that the final credit rolls, you will have an appreciation for another culture AND the issues that families go through in order to heal old wounds. 

As part of the #BlackPantherEvent Disney will be releasing Coco on BluRay #CocoBluRay

We enjoyed being able to catch it real time, but now that the film is out on Blu-ray we can watch it and the bonus features until we’ve memorized it in only a way that Disney can pull from you.

The bonus features are a way to get a peek into the process and inspirations behind the movie, and to be able to take the time to move through it so that you can enjoy every aspect.
