LOS ANGELES, Nov 10 ― Disney and Pixar brought a slice of Mexico to Hollywood Boulevard on Wednesday (November 8) for the premiere of the new animation Coco.
Skull painted faces, mariachi players and dancers lined the orange carpet for the film, which sees a young boy called Miguel (Anthony Gonzalez) during the annual festival of The Day of the Dead enter the Land of the Dead where he joins forces with the mysterious Hector (Gael Garcia Bernal).
Before and during production, the film makers behind Coco visited families from cities and rural areas to depict the different ways that the annual event is celebrated among Mexicans. Coco goes on release on November 22 in the United States. ― Reuters
