Released in late 2017, Coco is one of the newest additions to the Disney Pixar family. Miguel, a curious and rebellious young boy, takes an accidental trip to The Land of the Dead to discover his family’s legacy. The journey lead him to an unexpected reality that centered around love, anger, death, music, and most importantly, family. The hilarious characters in this film (shout out to Hector!) paired with life lessons taught, make Coco a must-see for any Disney fan.
Another thing I love about this film is that there are plenty of hidden Easter Eggs throughout. Easter Eggs are objects or characters hidden throughout movies, that reference other Disney movies. Take a look through these gems found throughout Coco – I’m sure that some will surprise you!
1. A113 – Many Disney and Pixar animators studied at California’s Institute of the Arts. A113 was a classroom from Cal Arts that was also included in Coco. The Customs Office in the Land of the Dead is also labeled Room #A113. Coincidence? I think not!
5. Nemo – You can find our favorite little clown fish located next to the skeleton near the top of the Afrienda. Is that Nemo hiding in the flowers?
6. Marlin, Dory, Destiny – I’m sure you remember these three from Finding Dory. Pixar hid these characters and you can find they are located on the “Alebrijes” table when Miguel is running through town.
7. Lion King – Dante the dog sometimes appears to be a dumb dog, however later we learn that he is actually Miguel’s spirit dog. At one point in the movie he made a reference to the hyena, Ed, from Lion King.
16. Pizza Planet Truck – Passes by when Miguel is looking out the window.
17. Ratatouille and Wall-e scooter – The scooter is green (instead of red in Ratatouille) because metal changes color as it ages.
