Trivia

When Miguel is running to the plaza to shine shoes he passes some piñatas for sale. They include Woody and Buzz from Toy Story and Mike from Monsters, Inc. See more »

Goofs

When Miguel returns to the Land of the Living at sunrise, the doors to Ernesto's tomb are sitting open to allow him out, despite the fact that they were closed and locked earlier in the film. The guitar being on the floor proves that no one entered while Miguel was gone - otherwise, they would have returned it to its spot on the wall. See more »

Enchanting and dazzling...
14 February 2018 | by MustakimFaiazPrimeSee all my reviews

Coco is a movie with lots of joyfulness and emotion... I nearly cried when Miguel sang "Remember Me" to her great-grandma, that was so impressively touching!!! And the end of the movie, my heart filled with so much happiness and joy...

Everybody should see this Movie..!!!
