Disney-Pixar’s “Coco” follows a 12-year-old boy named Miguel who dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz despite his family’s generations-old ban on music. Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Héctor, and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.
“A Celebration of the Music from Coco” for Disney+ is directed by Ron de Moraes and produced by Eventvision, with Gary M. Lanvy, Rob Paine and R.A. Clark serving as executive producers. The live concert event was directed by Fernandez del Paso and produced by Disney Concerts and Live Nation/Andrew Hewitt & Bill Silva Presents.
This will be a nice addition to the Disney+ Original library for April, especially with so many people home due to the Coronavirus.
