About Coco

Coco is a 2017 animated film from Pixar Animation Studios. The story follows Miguel, a young music-loving boy living in Santa Cecilia, Mexico. When trying to enter a talent competition at the Day of the Dead festival, Miguel ends up trapped in the Land of the Dead. To return to the Land of the Living, Miguel must receive a blessing from a deceased relative. His great-great-grandmother Imelda offers him a blessing on the condition he gives up music forever. Miguel refuses and goes on a search for the musician Ernesto de la Cruz, the man he believes is his great-great-grandfather. The film premiered at the Morelia International Film Festival and hit theaters in Mexico the weekend before the Day of the Dead. It was released in the US the following November.

About Miguel Rivera

Miguel is a 12-year-old boy with a passion for music. His family forbids playing or listening to music after his great-great-grandfather abandoned his wife and daughter to become a musician. Miguel rebels against his family's taboo and secretly teaches himself guitar. He idolizes a famous musician who passed away years earlier, Ernesto de la Cruz. One day, he discovers that the torn photograph of his great-grandmother, Coco, and her mother has a secret folded section. In the photo, his great-great-grandfather is holding de la Cruz's famous guitar, leading Miguel to believe they are the same person. Miguel ends up trapped in the Land of the Dead for taking de la Cruz's guitar from his grave.

Other Important Coco Characters

Miguel's journey through the Land of the Dead involved the help of other characters met along the way.


Hector is an infamous trickster in the Land of the Dead and the deuteragonist of the film. He accompanies Miguel on his search for his de la Cruz, his former friend while they were alive. In exchange for his help, Hector asks Miguel to help him crossover to the living world so he can visit his elderly daughter. Upon finding de la Cruz, Hector reveals he wrote all of the singer's famous songs. Miguel asks why de la Cruz never credited him and Hector began to doubt their friendship. After de la Cruz throws him and Miguel out of his home, the two realize Hector is actually Miguel's estranged great-great-grandfather.

Ernesto de la Cruz

Ernesto de la Cruz is a famous musician and source of Mexican pride within the world of Coco. He was known for his debonair good looks and catchy, yet emotionally profound songwriting. In 1942, de la Cruz died suddenly by getting crushed by a falling bell. Miguel worships de la Cruz at the beginning of the film and believes he is his estranged great-great-grandfather. Hector wrote the songs that de la Cruz famously performed. One day, Hector told de la Cruz he wished to return home to his family, regretting his decision to leave against his wife's wishes. Fearing the end of his career, de la Cruz poisoned Hector to protect his reputation as a songwriter.

Mama Coco

Mama Coco is the titular character of the film and Miguel's great-grandmother. Nearly 100 years old, Coco suffers from a degenerating memory. However, she still fondly remembers her father despite his status as an outcast. She is the only one who listens to and supports Miguel's dreams to pursue music. Through his adventures in the Land of the Dead, Miguel discovers the truth behind Coco's missing father, Hector. When he returns home, he plays Coco's lullaby, the famous song "Remember Me," for her and she regains a small part of her memory. At the end of the film, Coco is reunited with her parents, now back together, in the Land of the Dead.
