Coco 4K Ultra HD / Blu-Ray Review

Watching the Coco 4K Ultra HD version on a 4K television and with an X Box One X was impressive. The visuals were stunning. In the scene where the grandmother chases the mariachi man with her shoe, you can see the wood grain in great detail with the 4K Ultra HD version. When the light reflected off the water in the cave, every detail looked fantastic.

Since this was my husband’s first time to see the movie, he was impressed with how detailed the Land of the Dead scene was. While this scene looks incredible in 4K, you can appreciate it in any resolution because of all the work the filmmakers put into this part.

UNLIKELY DUET -- In Disney•Pixar’s “Coco,” aspiring musician Miguel (voice of Anthony Gonzalez) teams up with charming trickster Hector (voice of Gael García Bernal) on a life-changing journey through the Land of the Dead. Directed by Lee Unkrich, co-directed by Adrian Molina and produced by Darla K. Anderson, Disney•Pixar’s “Coco” opens in U.S. theaters on Nov. 22, 2017. ©2017 Disney•Pixar. All Rights Reserved.

One scene that looked fantastic in 4K was the trains moving in the Land of the Dead. Every detail was visually stunning.

Coco Bonus Features

Even though I had the awesome opportunity to see the movie at the Los Angeles premiere (which you can read about here), watching Coco 4K Ultra HD / Blu-Ray at home means that you can peek behind the scenes with the bonus features.

A Thousand Pictures A Day

In A Thousands Pictures A Day, you can see how the movie went from the streets of Mexico to the big screen. Researching the Mexican culture meant seeing what it was like there.

Director Lee Unkrich spoke about seeing all the different cultures and traditions as well as what it was like working to get to know the people and visiting families.

Adrian Molina also spoke about how valuable it was to encounter what he called “happy accidents,” or moments that helped inspire the movie.

Some of the time in Mexico was spent in conversation with a man whose family were shoemakers. The filmmakers said this was a particularly helpful part of their research.

Not only did visiting Mexico help solidify the details of the movie, but the goal was also for the people of Mexico to identify with scenes in the movie.

As the filmmakers researched, they took notes and created drawings. Mike Hernandez and Jason Katz said that they did a lot of sketching and writing. The sketches later became characters.

I enjoyed learning the background of the alibrijes sculptures and how they made their way into the story. Since the Land of the Dead does not traditionally have spirit animals, this interesting addition showed the folk art of Mexico.

You can also see the building that the department of family affairs was based on, which was breathtaking.

During the research process, the filmmakers were taking about 1000 pictures a day. Not only did they capture the colorful buildings and learn more about the Mexican families, but they also studied the Day of the Dead. Representing this day in the most authentic way mattered.

The Music of Coco

In The Music of Coco, you learn more about the music behind the movie. Since Miguel has a major goal of playing music, music plays a big role in the movie.

This part also talks more about the song ‘Un Poco Loco,’ which is one of my favorite songs from the soundtrack and one of my favorite scenes in the movie. Miguel sings this song during the talent show when he is trying to get to Ernesto de la Cruz’s party.

In the bonus feature, the filmmakers explain that the song is about when you’re thinking of your spouse or significant other, and you’re thinking, you’re crazy, but in a good way.

Land of Our Ancestors

In Land of Our Ancestors, you learn more about the cinematic world that fills the Land of the Dead with celebratory music, color, and dance. You also see how the filmmakers brought out the details of the sets, not just to be beautiful, but also to tell the story.

I enjoyed hearing about the scene that shows the people who are almost forgotten. When the character played by Edward J. Olmos is forgotten forever, it was a touching moment and had so much emotion. Watching this part reminded me of how incredible it was to interview him (which you can read about here).

In the 'Land of Our Ancestors' bonus feature, you learn more about the place where the nearly forgotten souls live.

Fashion Through The Ages

In Fashion Through The Ages, you learn about the cultural perspective of the clothing. Filmmakers studied the traditional clothing and the movement of the skirts. Animators worked to re-create the motion of the clothing, which also needed to fit with the movement of the skeletons.

In the 'Fashion Through The Ages' bonus feature, you see the work animators did to make the traditional skirts move on the skeletons.

The Real Guitar

In The Real Guitar, you learn about the design of Ernesto de la Cruz’s guitar. The designer focused on the harmony and balance of color and textures and making a balance of fantasy and reality. If you love guitars, this is a good feature to watch. You can see the process of how the guitar was made.

Paths to Pixar: Coco

In Paths to Pixar: Coco, the focus is about turning dreams into reality. You learn about many different Pixar employees and how they followed their heart. Co-director/writer Adrian Molina talked about always wanting the big crayon box as a kid, and that’s what filmmaking is to him now.

I also enjoyed hearing him talk about receiving a blessing from his parents to go to art school and how that inspired the idea of receiving a blessing in the movie. When I interviewed him (you can read more here), he also shared that story with us. It was interesting to hear it again.

How To Make A Papel Picado

My children’s favorite part was How to make a Papel Picado. This easy craft tutorial used paper and scissors.

Pixar artist Ana Ramirez talked about how to make the papel picado decorative craft banner the way she learned in school in Mexico.

I liked how simple, fast, and interesting the tutorial was.

You Got The Part!

In You Got the Part!, you can see the the touching moment when child star Anthony Gonzalez got the part of Miguel. He had been hired in for a temporary voice role, but was surprised with a gift that said the part was his.

This was such a happy moment and was exciting to watch. My favorite moment was seeing the mom in tears when her son was surprised. It reminded me of how sweet she was after I interviewed her son (which you can read about here).

Deleted Scenes

As you can imagine, working on a movie for six years means having a lot of different takes. You can see the rough cuts to better understand the process Coco went through. These are all storyboard sequences and are not fully animated.

    My family hasn’t seen Coco yet, however we embrace other cultures, my son is a particular fan of Dora and my daughter likes for me to teach her some Spanish words so I am sure we’ll enjoy this one for a family movie night.
