Winfree and Radulich review the latest Pixar feature, Coco!

Coco is a 2017 American 3D computer-animated musical fantasy film produced by Pixar Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures.[9] Based on an original idea by Lee Unkrich, it is directed by Unkrich and co-directed by Adrian Molina. The story follows a 12-year-old boy named Miguel who is accidentally transported to the land of the dead, where he seeks the help of his musician great-great-grandfather to return him to his family among the living.

The concept of the film is based on the Mexican holiday of Día de Muertos. The screenplay was penned by Molina and Matthew Aldrich, based on a story by Unkrich, Molina, Jason Katz and Aldrich. Pixar began developing animation in 2016; Unkrich and some of the film's crew visited Mexico for inspiration. Composer Michael Giacchino, who had worked on prior Pixar animated features, composed the score. The film's voice cast features Anthony Gonzalez, Gael García Bernal, Benjamin Bratt, Alanna Ubach, Renée Victor, Ana Ofelia Murguía and Edward James Olmos. It is the first-ever film with a nine-digit budget to feature an all-Latino cast, with a cost between $175–200 million.
