Miguel is similar to Lewis Robinson from Meet The Robinsons (2007). Both are kid protagonists of a Disney movie. Both are hoping to accomplish something (Finding his birth mother in Lewis's case, and being a musician in Miguel's case). Both characters go to a strange world with their family (Lewis going to the future, and Miguel going to the Land Of The Dead), And both characters' family name starts with R. (Robinson being Lewis's family name, and Rivera being Miguel's family name). See more
