ChiIL Mama's Review:
We adore Disney Pixar's multigenerational Mexican masterpiece and can't rave highly enough about it. This is THE film to see over the holiday season. The voice talent and original score are fantastic, as is the animation. It's stellar story telling of the highest magnitude with stunning visuals the whole family will enjoy.
ChiIL Mama was invited to a sneak peek press preview of Coco two days before it opened to the public, where jaded critics were actually tearing up. This celebration of music, family, ancestors, and Mexican culture resonated with me and I can't wait to return with the whole family and catch it again. I love the adventure, the family relationships and the clever plot twists that make this a keeper. Coco is sure to delight audiences for generations to come. Oh SO highly recommended.
“For this music is my language
And the world es mi familia.”
