Here Are Some ‘Coco’ Quotes You Can Use In Any Situation Because ‘Coco’ Is Universal

If you’re like the millions of others who watched the Pixar movie “Coco,” you probably cried your eyes out. But also learned some amazing life lessons along with Miguel, Hector, and the rest of the family. Even Dante the dog! Through his adventures in the Land of the Dead, Miguel taught us all about the importance of love, family, remembering your loved ones, and following your heart, Here are 20 Coco quotes to keep you inspired!.

1. This line from “Remember Me.”

“Coco” / Walt Disney Pictures / Pixar Animation Studios

“For even if I’m far away, I hold you in my heart / I sing a secret song to you, each night we are apart.” Oof! That still gives me chills!

2. When Coco looked on the bright side of his family history.

“Coco” / Walt Disney Pictures /
Pixar Animation Studios

“A minute ago I thought I was related to a murderer! You’re a total upgrade!” I mean, if you discover that you’re not actually related to a cold blooded killer that ended up ruining an important part of your family’s life, then yeah you’d be happy too.

3. Why it’s important to remember the dead.

“Coco” / Walt Disney Pictures /
Pixar Animation Studios

“He’s been forgotten. When there’s no one left in the living world who remembers you, you disappear from this world. We call it the Final Death.” That part was not just upsetting but made me think of all my great grandparents and great aunts and people who I never knew and are forgotten.

4. On keeping family members alive, even after they’re gone.

“Coco” / Walt Disney Pictures /
Pixar Animation Studios

“Our memories, they have to be passed down by those who knew us in life – in the stories they tell about us.” This made me tear up so bad, thinking about how we need to talk about the family members that passed away so coming generations know where they came from. I plan on telling family stories until I no longer can.

5. Take this one with a grain of salt.

“Coco” / Walt Disney Pictures /
Pixar Animation Studios

“Seize your moment.” Ernesto de la Cruz spoke these words that inspired Miguel and countless of his fans to go after their dreams. Plot twist: he also used it to commit murder. Don’t do that! But yeah, seize your moment when you’re trying to make a name for yourself.

6. That reminder of what it means to be a part of a family.

“Coco” / Walt Disney Pictures /
Pixar Animation Studios

“Being a part of this family means you are here for THIS family.” It may not make sense at first hearing, or reading, but it makes complete sense once it hits. Being there for someone means really being there, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

7. What family is meant for.

“Coco” / Walt Disney Pictures /
Pixar Animation Studios

“That is what families are supposed to do, support you.” Uhh there is not a single lie to be found in this line. We need family, whatever form that comes in, to look out for us.

8. The difference between forgiving and forgetting.

“Coco” / Walt Disney Pictures /
Pixar Animation Studios

“You don’t’ have to forgive him, but we shouldn’t forget him.” Keeping the memory of our loved ones alive, even when they did wrong, is important. And this line from the movie is a beautiful reminder of that. Even if the ones that hurt us don’t deserve to be remembered or forgiven, in keeping the memory we can even grow from it.

9. On success.

“Coco” / Walt Disney Pictures /
Pixar Animation Studios

“Success doesn’t come for free. You have to do whatever it takes to seize your moment.” While the second part of this has already been mentioned, this full version also deserves a shout out. Success take work, and it’s not handed to most people. But still, don’t murder anyone.

10. A simple reminder.

“Coco” / Walt Disney Pictures /
Pixar Animation Studios

“Nothing’s more important than family.” Family really is everything. Whether it’s the one you’re born into, or the one you build, you need the support system of people loving you and looking out for you.

11. Believing in your path.

“Coco” / Walt Disney Pictures /
Pixar Animation Studios

“One cannot deny who one is meant to be.” Believing in yourself and your purpose in life is hard sometimes, but when you know for sure who you are and what you’re meant to be doing, it’s a powerful feeling. Keep pushing forward.

12. Follow your heart and the things that make you happy.

“Coco” / Walt Disney Pictures /
Pixar Animation Studios

“I have to sing, I have to play. The music, it’s not just in me, it is me. When life gets me down, I play my guitar.” Whatever it is that brings you joy, do it and let it live within you. It’s those joys that make life worth living.

13. On taking a chance no matter the risk.

“Coco” / Walt Disney Pictures /
Pixar Animation Studios

“The rest of the world may follow the rules, but I must follow my heart.” Sometimes the thing that will make us most happy, that will make our dreams come true, are too far to touch because of the rules life sets upon you. But if you are willing to break the rules to get there, you have a better shot.

14. Working hard for your dreams.

“Coco” / Walt Disney Pictures /
Pixar Animation Studios

“No one was going to hand me my future. It was up to me to reach for my dream, grab it tight and make it come true.” Inspiring words that teach you to do the work necessary to make your dreams come true.

15. On music.

“Coco” / Walt Disney Pictures /
Pixar Animation Studios

“Never underestimate the power of music.” Music is a universal language, and has the power to transform our mood, our livelihood, our moments. Music is such a huge part of Latinx culture because of its power.

16. Knowing what should be given a name.

“Coco” / Walt Disney Pictures /
Pixar Animation Studios

“Never name a street dog. They’ll follow you forever.” Now in the movie this was in direct reference to Miguel’s street dog Dante. However, the same should be applied to crappy dudes you sleep with once. No need to remember their names.

17. Family love is always needed.

“Coco” / Walt Disney Pictures /
Pixar Animation Studios

“Never forget how much your family loves you.” Even though we usually know our families are there for us, and love us unconditionally, it’s still important to hear. Call your family and let them know today.

18. Not being blinded by our dreams.

“Coco” / Walt Disney Pictures /
Pixar Animation Studios

“Be careful what you chase after.” While it’s important to follow your dreams and work hard to achieve them, you have to be careful of what you sacrifice in doing so. In the movie, it meant giving up family.

19. Again, family is everything no matter what.

“Coco” / Walt Disney Pictures /
Pixar Animation Studios

“We may have our differences, but nothing’s more important than family.” Family doesn’t always agree, and sometimes family fights. But at the end of the day, family is a bond that strengthens your love.

20. Being yourself.

“Coco” / Walt Disney Pictures /
Pixar Animation Studios

“I’m not like the rest of my family.” Sometimes you’re the “different” one in your family. That can be tough growing up, but with a family that loves and supports you it makes you a tougher person.

Through the laughs, the tears, and the heart warming moments, “Coco” taught us all about love, family, and following your dreams. These quotes all hit home for a variety of reasons, and made us think long and hard about the people we remember and the sacrifices we make. But seriously, pass the Kleenex!

A New ‘Coco’ Short Film Called ‘A Day in the Life of the Dead’ Has Just Premiered on Disney+

We have exciting news for die-hard fans of the beloved Pixar movie, “Coco”. Disney+ has just premiered an adorable short film that gives audiences a glimpse into the “average day in the afterlife” in the Land of the Dead.

The 2-minute film is called “A Day in the Life of the Dead” and features various calacas going about the daily lives.

The short film is part of a series called “Pixar Popcorn” that started streaming on Friday. The series will feature a variety of short films inspired by different Pixar movies, including “Toy Story”, “Finding Nemo,” “The Incredibles”, and of course (and most importantly)…”Coco”.

“A Day in the Life of the Dead” is as beautifully animated as the 2017 film is.

The 2-minute film is animated with the same lush, vibrant colors of the original film and rendered with Pixar’s signature creative vision of the Land of the Dead.

And to make things more exciting, the movie is littered with cameos from fan-favorite characters like Mamá Imelda, Héctor, and the jaw-dropping arrivals agent.

In fact, one of the funniest vignettes is when the arrivals agent repeatedly loses his jaw bone, including when he tries to take an (unsuccessful) bite of cortadillo.

In other parts of the short film, we watch calacas riding a tandem bike, exercising, playing with cute animals, and attempting to keep their heads on straight–literally.

But of course, most of the humor of the short film comes from the inherent comedy of skeletons try to accomplish daily tasks when their bodies keep falling apart.

But “A Day in the Life of the Dead” isn’t the only Pixar short film that’s part of the “Pixar Popcorn” series. There’s tons of cute shorts that will keep you or the little kid in your life entertained for a while.

The series also features the short films “Dancing With the Cars”, “Soul of the City”, “Chore Day: The Incredibles Way”, “Dory Finding”, and “To Fitness and Beyond”, and more. There are eleven short films all together–the perfect amount to binge in one sitting!
