Did You Know?
Songwriters Robert Lopez
and Kristen Anderson-Lopez
contributed one song for Coco
(2017), the film's signature song "Remember Me". This marked the first time the husband-and-wife songwriting team composed music for a Pixar animated film. Ironically, they could not get involved with the Frozen short film Olaf's Frozen Adventure
(2017) due to scheduling conflicts with Coco. See more
When Miguel's abuelita catches him in the plaza with the Mariachi, Miguel pushes the guitar back. The Mariachi puts his hands up to keep his sombrero on and between shots, the guitar flips over in his lap. In one shot, the neck is on the Mariachi's right hand--the position Miguel, facing opposite, was holding it in--and in the next, the neck is on the Mariachi's left hand, as if the Mariachi was about to play it.
