Coco released in Mexican theatres today, and floods of compliments, congratulations, and thank yous have been filling up the Twitter feeds of directors Lee Unkrich and Adrian Molina. It must be an incredibly exciting time for Pixar’s Coco crew to see their 6 years of hard work really paying off and affecting people so deeply and positively.
Here are just a small number of the many touching comments that have been retweeted by the directors:
“It’s the best movie I’ve ever seen. It is absolutely magnificent. Thank you”
“Coco had me laughing, singing and crying. Thank you & Pixar for making such a beautiful movie based on my culture.”
“Thank you thank you thank you so much!!I just saw coco and I can’t stop crying! You represented Mexico in a beautiful way! I LOVED IT!”
These in addition to the tweets that simply say ‘thank you’ or ‘congratulations’ are so, so heartwarming. I can’t imagine how immensely proud, relieved and grateful the crew are feeling right now. It will be a while before I get to see the movie for myself, but its release in Mexico has already made the world feel brighter and warmer.
Coco releases in US theatres on the 22nd of November – just under a month away! Let’s hope these positive reviews just keep on coming.
