Coco was released November 22nd, and all teens should check it out. It is a spiritual odyssey.

Most people our age such as teens and adults may think that Disney movies are too childish, but this one isn’t to be missed.

Young Miguel will never stop chasing after his dreams.  When we all fall short and get discouraged, Miguel’s story will lift us up.

This boy is 12, and he loves music.  Unfortunately, his parents don’t support his passion. In fact, even his own grandmother destroyed the one instrument he had, his beloved guitar.

In his musical quest that couldn’t be thwarted, he went in search of another guitar, but he wound up “dead.”

Well, he wasn’t fully dead. He was able to see the dead. It was the “Day of the Dead’ which is when the living can invite deceased loved ones to visit them.

Thus, he was able to see his great grandfather to explain his dreams and passion.

Spoiler alert: The great grandfather is not who you think he is.

Once Coco was able to see his ancestors he learned many more things about them.

Miguel was not the only one that had a passion for music his ancestors did as well.

As he slowly transformed into a skeleton, Miguel knew music was in his body. There was no way he’s get rid of it.

Coco has many emotional moments that there’s an explanation behind every single one of them, specifically, if you were dead and one of your loved one ends up forgetting about you, you tend to disappear forever.

We all stand on the shoulders of those who came before us.

See Coco.
