Getting Culture Right – Coco

If you haven’t seen ‘Coco’, I implore you to do so. Not just because it’s one of the best movies (animated or live-action) to come out this year. I want you to see it because money talks and Disney/Pixar should be rewarded for doing what it takes to get “culture” right. There were missteps along the way, but when telling the stories of another culture, it’s bound to happen. For once, a major studio was willing to correct those missteps and surround themselves with people from the culture they wanted to explore AND listen to their feedback.

The end result is a beautiful tale of life, death, music, and La Familia.
