I lost my grandmother in April 2018, I watched Coco before but more recently after her death. It was my first death of a family member. I tried not to cry the majority of the movie.

One thing Coco and I got in common is how dearly we miss our dad. Mine went away when I was 8 to work in another country and it saddens me whenever I watch the Remember Me scene. I hope I get to watch it with him once I reach him!

I’m not Hispanic or Latinx in any way, but over the 13 times I’ve watched Coco, and absolutely fell in love with it, the movie sparked an interest in me to start studying Spanish and learn more about Mexican culture. Honestly I just think it’s all so beautiful, and it’s one of the reasons Coco holds a special place in my heart.

The movie “Coco” really hits home for me. I’m part Mexican and my great grandma was dying and had amnesia just like Mama Coco. She died two months after Coco was released and I played the song “Remember me” for my great grandmother. I now have Disney to thank for helping me go through her passing.

I love Coco, but I feel that my love for the movie got ruined when someone started to tell us Filipino fans of the movie to speak Spanish again because Tagalog is “hard”. Many Filipinos are colonial minded and already have enough self-hatred towards themselves and their languages already. Stop enabling and encouraging them to do so!

Coco holds a special place in my heart. I recently changed my career path from pre-medicine to music composition. Just like Miguel’s family, my parents didn’t accept my decision at first, and I even stayed at my grandma’s house for a couple of days because I was so hurt. But thankfully, my parents have eventually come around and have accepted my decision, since that what my heart really wants. I hope to one day write a composition for Disney, even a small, simple melody! It would mean the world.

The scene when Hector gently tries to calm Miguel down in the cenote really touches me. I have autism and am prone to meltdowns. One time I had a really bad one, and my dad was scolding at me to stop, which made it worse. I wish I could have one Hector’s comforting hugs when I have a meltdown.

I’m latina and my family is so much like Coco’s! We (used to be) very numerous, very close, and traditional parties (with yummy food) were held with importance. Both my great grannies had alzheimers and it hits me hard when Coco dies, but family is always there with you to support you in the end, although they might now understand you or your dreams at times.

Whenever I do homework or classwork it’s really hard for me to focus on what I’m reading or writing unless I’m holding something. Recently I got some mini Coco Funko figures and I put Dante in my pocket after playing with them with my sister. During school I found him in my hoodie pocket and held onto him the entire time I was reading or doing work. I’m planning on getting a tsum tsum of him just to make things a little easier on me and so it won’t be so obvious as a high school student.

When Coco came out in theaters, the cemetery was so full of people, like more than I remembered when I was little, celebrating, singing and dancing with mariachis, skull painted faces and so much cempazúchilt (my favorite flower). I was so happy Día de Muertos felt magical and heartwarming again
