Inspired by this, Batman’s (Ben Affleck) faith in humanity is renewed.

Calling all kids (and adults who are kids at heart)! The animated Disney/Pixar film, Coco, will transport you to a magical land. It’s a heart-warming story of Miguel (voice of newcomer Anthony Gonzalez), a 12-year-old boy, who dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his late great-great-grandfather, Ernesto de la Cruz (voice of Benjamin Bratt). Miguel idolises Ernesto, who was the most famous musician in the history of Mexico. However, Miguel’s dreams are shattered because of his family’s generations-old ban on music.
Determined to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colourful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector (voice of Gael García Bernal) and together with Miguel’s dog, Dante, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history. The film also stars the voices of Jaime Camil as Papá, Miguel’s father and Sofía Espinosa as Mamá, Miguel’s mother. This is a must-see animated adventure, of a little boy with a dream and his determination to make it come true! Coco is sure to steal your heart.
