Tomorrow, February 27th, is a day that’s been marked down in Pixar fans’ diaries for a while now – it’s the day Coco will finally be released on Blu-ray and DVD. But now there’s even more reason to look forward to this date: Los Angeles is declaring Tuesday as ‘Coco Day in L.A.’, celebrating the film’s incredible worldwide success and its representation of the Latino community.
Los Angeles City Councilmember Gil Cedillo, First District, is to declare ‘Coco Day in L.A.’ at the Los Angeles City Hall tomorrow morning. The ceremony will start at 9am, and director Lee Unkrich, producer Darla K Anderson, and Anthony Gonzalez (who lent his voice to the Coco protagonist Miguel) will be in attendance. The Mariachi Divas will also be performing “Un Poco Loco” and the award-winning “Remember Me“.
It’s not often that a movie has such a positive effect on the world that within months of its release, it has its very own day of celebration. But Coco is an instant classic that is sure to be remembered for many years to come, not just because of its resonating story and characters, but because of its wonderful representation of Latino culture. It is a movie that is incredibly deserving of all the success that has come its way. So, Happy (almost) Coco Day! How will you be celebrating?
