Coco is it. The movie is beyond lit and the whole plot twist is in layers, you get to the twist and before you are done digesting the magnificent plot twist, they hit you with another twist that will leave you the watcher gasping.

To be honest Disney Animation has been on point, leaving their Pixar arm to bite the dust.
Take your mind back to 2012 with, Wreck-It Ralph, Frozen (2013), Big Hero 6 (2014) and my second-best Disney animation in the last two decades Zootopia (2016), Pixar has struggled to make a mark since Toy Story 3 (2010) this will be the second Pixar movie since 2010 [the first being Inside Out (2015)] that is worth having a copy of.

Coco is a 3D computer-animated musical comedy fantasy film produced by Pixar Animation Studios and it is their nineteenth (19) production to be released by Disney.

The movie plot is an original one based on the Mexican holiday, Day of the Dead. When loved ones remember their long lost (and newly dead) relatives.

In this story, a 12-year-old boy named Miguel Rivera wants to branch out of the shoe making and polishing business of the family and be a musician.
Miguel's hero/idol is the late Ernesto de la Cruz, the most famous musician in the history of Mexico. Miguel's family has banned him from chasing his musical dream, but on this holiday to celebrate the dead, Miguel decided to go after his dream and get to perform without his family’s blessings.

This led him to go steal the guitar of his idol, but before stealing it he noticed that the guitar resembled the one on the picture of his great-great grandmother standing beside her husband who was holding the same guitar. Believing within himself that his hero/idol is his great-great grandfather, Miguel stole the guitar which then accidentally transported him to the land of the dead.

He meets his family, but decided to get away from them and chase after his idol. The problem is, he must get the blessing of his musician great-great-grandfather to return him to his family among the living before sunrise or he will be trapped in the land of the dead forever.

Setting records in Mexico, and already winning awards, this animation is fun filled and altogether well put together a must see for the whole family.

In the coming years, Disney and Pixar have decided to pack 2018 and 2019 with 3D-animation sequels that is sure to make us run to the cinemas.
2018 we have in June (Pixar) and November (Disney), Incredibles 2 and Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 respectively.
2019 we have in June (Pixar) and November (Disney), Toy Story 4 and Frozen 2 respectively.
