Although Pixar Animation Studios is known for distinguishing itself from Walt Disney Animation Studios by, among many things, not making musical films, Coco
(2017) is Pixar's first music/musical film. Coco is not technically considered to be a straight-on musical, as it is more of a music/musical film in a fashion similar to films like The Blues Brothers
(1984), Happy Feet
(2006), O Brother, Where Art Thou?

(2002), La La Land
(2016), The King and I
(1956), Mary Poppins
(1964), My Fair Lady
(1964), Singin' in the Rain
(1952), The Sound of Music
(1965), West Side Story
(1961), and The Wizard of Oz
(1939)). See more
