Disney and Pixar rarely fail to achieve greatness. Once again, they set the standard for the film industry.
All Miguel (Anthony Gonzalez) wants to do is play music. However, after his great-great grandfather left his family for music, it’s been banned. When he steals the guitar of a dead musician during Día de Muertos, he’s cursed into the world of the dead until he can gain his deceased family’s approval to return home.
Without a doubt, this is the most visually stunning Pixar film I have seen. The colors are absolutely beautiful and the land of the dead is even more vibrant than the land of the living.
Miguel’s journey is an absolute joy to follow and there is incredible music and shocks along the way to keep the energy flowing.
Final say: Pixar at its finest. ★★★★★
