February 27th is now Coco Day in L.A.!


Last year, Pixar's animated film Coco captured the hearts of millions around the world. Coco, which centers around a Mexican family bonding together on Dia De Los Muertos, received the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture and an Oscar nomination. It also broke massive records including becoming the highest grossing film of all time in Mexico when it earned 827 million pesos ($43 million).

The film was the first time many young Latin American kids saw themselves represented on the big screen. It was a film that connected us to our roots and reminded us that we are the heroes of our own stories. L.A. City Council Member Gil Cedillo is honoring that impact by declaring February 27 as "Coco Day in L.A." The animated film will be celebrated at City Hall coinciding with its' blue-ray DVD release. The film's producer Darla K. Anderson and director Lee Unkrich will be in attendance along with Miguel's voice actor Anthony Gonzalez.
