Did You Know?
The character of Ernesto de la Cruz is based on the Mexican icon Pedro Infante (in fact, the second last name of Infante was "Cruz"). In addition, Ernesto's last name, de la Cruz, is also a reference to another Pixar character, Cruz Ramirez from Cars 3
(2017). In addition to that, a cartoon of Pedro Infante appears in the film and even interacts with De la Cruz. See more
