The film “Coco”, which portrays the essence of the Day of the Dead, will be broadcast on November 2 through the HBO and HBO GO signal at 10:00 pm, in anticipation of its Latin American premiere.
With a slew of movies being lined up for broadcast on Halloween, this movie has come as a big surprise because people were not expecting to see ‘Coco’ at all. HBO believes that this movie is going to get thousands of eyeballs because it is a fresh and exciting story.
With this, the Disney Pixar film celebrates the family and pays homage to one of the most representative traditions in this country.
The Pixar team visited different corners of Mexico to define the history and characters of the film, including Oaxaca, one of the states where they were most inspired thanks to their culture, folk art, and traditions.
With intense colors and detailed confection of typical costumes, as well as with characteristic costumes, “Coco” takes to the screen without equal the reflection of one of the most representative parties in Mexico.
In that work, the story of “Miguel Rivera” is told, a boy who dreams of becoming a consecrated musician, but in his family music has been banned for several generations.
In his attempt to prove that he has talent, the character is involved in a series of events that take him to the colorful “Land of the Dead”, where he will meet the friendly “Hector”, who will help him discover his family history.
The film represented a challenge when telling a story so emotional and full of cultural elements. Similarly, it became a technological milestone for the production house for its advances in animation to give its own personality to characters made only of bones, as well as to illuminate scenes in the “Land of the Dead”, where it is always at night.
The scene in which “Miguel” arrives for the first time to his supernatural destiny required to animate seven million sources of light, for which a new software was developed, the channel said in a statement.
Personalities of Mexican culture such as Maria Felix, Pedro Infante, Emiliano Zapata, Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, among others, served as inspiration for the characters, who seem to come back to life in the film.
The Mexican voices that gave life to these characters correspond to those of Victor Trujillo, Xavier López “Chabelo”, Angélica María, Angélica Vale, Marco Antonio Solís and Gael García Bernal.
Directed by Lee Unkrick, co-directed by Adrián Molina and produced by Darla K. Anderson, “Coco” was recognized internationally and won two Oscars for Best Animated Film and Best Original Song for “Remember me”.
She was also honored at the Golden Globes®, at the Critics’ Choice Movies Awards and at the BAFTA for Best Animated Film. Her main song also received an award at the Critics’ Choice Movies Awards and was nominated at the Golden Globes in the Best Original Song category.
