The voice cast is nearly all Latino (and most actually are Mexican), with internationally renowned Mexican-American actor Edward James Olmos and comedians Cheech Marin and Gabriel Iglesias voicing supporting characters. Bratt (who's half Peruvian) has just the right timbre of gravitas to play de la Cruz, a famous and vainglorious musician who died at the peak of his career. As for the titular character, she's Miguel's wheelchair-bound great-grandmother (Ana Ofelia Murguía), and her scenes with Miguel will bring a tear to even the most jaded viewer's eyes. The movie will be especially moving for anyone who's had to separate from their family, whether because of death or another reason (including immigration complications or difficult situations back home). But of all the movie's relationships, it's really Miguel's with Hector that's the most nuanced and fascinating. Bernal's Hector is so much more than he seems, and whether he's pretending to be Frida Kahlo (the ghost of Kahlo herself also makes an appearance), playing the guitar, or pleading his case to be remembered, he's the film's second hero. Like the best Pixar movies, Coco is ultimately a story about the power of relationships and why familia is so important.

As much as we all like to talk about the value of onscreen representation and the conventional wisdom about how "not a white guy" movies don't travel overseas, Coco is yet another occasion of domestic audiences not putting their money where their mouth is while overseas audiences pick up the slack. Okay, so Coco isn't quite the same thing as Scarlett Johansson's Ghost in the Shell, Paul W.S. Anderson's Resident Evil: The Final Chapter or even Vin Diesel's multicultural xXx: Return of Xander Cage. But those three films (along with more obvious examples like Furious 7 and Black Panther) expose the lie that movies about white women, minority women and minority men don't sell overseas.
Moreover, many of those films outright flopped in North America. And while Coco was a solid grosser in North America, its $209.72 million domestic gross was, adjusted for inflation, Pixar's third-lowest earner behind Cars 3 ($152.9m in 2017) and The Good Dinosaur ($123m in 2015) in terms of domestic tickets sold. It's a little disconcerting three of Pixar's last four releases (aside from Finding Dory) were also among their lowest-grossing domestic titles. Yes, part of this is the whole "folks don't go to the movies as much as they used to even a few years ago" thing, but it's still not good news.
Sure, we can take credit for WB's Wonder Woman and Disney's Black Panther, and maybe even the last few Disney Star Wars movies, but otherwise I would argue for onscreen diversity because of the overseas box office, not in spite of it. This isn't a zero-sum game, as WB's Ready Player One sits on one end and Disney's A Wrinkle in Time sits on the other. The notion of Universal/Comcast Corp.'s Pacific Rim: Uprising starring John Boyega instead of Charlie Hunnam may not be a draw for overseas moviegoers, but it sure as heck isn't a turn-off. 350c69d7ab
