This new Pixar explores the traditions of the Día de Muertos, a boy’s desire to become a musician despite his family’s ban on music and the power of unconditional love.
Language: English, Spanish – subtitles: Dutch
Despite his family's generations-old ban on music, young Miguel dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol Ernesto de la Cruz. Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colourful Land of the Dead. After meeting a charming trickster named Héctor, the two new friends embark on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel's family history.
‘We are all part of a family,’ says co-director and screenwriter Adrian Molina. ‘Those relationships are beautiful and complicated. But our family shapes who we are, which makes us wonder—if you had an opportunity to meet your ancestors, what would you recognize in them that you see in yourself?’
Director Lee Unkrich: ‘We ‘have a common need to be remembered—to feel that we’ll matter long after our time here. Likewise, there’s a strong desire to keep alive the memories of our loved ones. By sharing their stories and creating our own, we build this connection across generations that is bigger than our day-to-day lives.’
New York Times: ‘If this movie doesn’t quite reach the highest level of Pixar masterpieces, it plays a time-tested tune with captivating originality and flair’
