Coocoo for COCO
I didn’t get a chance to check out this masterpiece in the theater. So of course my family and I (Malakai especially) were extra anxious for it’s release. Without question, I knew we’d love it. For one, we’re Mexican and we love seeing a piece of our culture out there for the world to see, even more so that Disney*Pixar were the ones to display this beauty! And two, we love Dia de Los Muertos, it’s one of my favorite holidays.
Today something special happened, and I couldn’t wait to blog about it! We received our very own Blu Ray/DVD of COCO. Cue the happy squeals of my 5 year old once he opened the package! ‘Let’s watch it NOW Mama!’ I wouldn’t dream of doing anything else at this moment! I made our lunch and we plopped on the couch.
To say we were all glued to the screen (my 1 year old included) would be an understatement. It took no time at all for my littles to mimick Miguel’s gritos! And soon our light sabers were transformed into guitarras.. Air guitar would not suffice today!
It’s so visually stunning and the emphasis on love of music and familia struck me to my core. I was teary eyed and then I wasn’t, because I was bawling by the end of this COCO adventure. It tugged on my heart strings. I couldn’t help it. You’ve been warned. Buy a box of tissues along with your movie purchase!
I don’t want to give away to much. Watch it! And reflect on your familia, living and passed on. Remembering and keeping their legacies alive for yourself and your future generations is beautiful. Celebrate it!
