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 quotes from “Coco” to keep you inspired!

1. This line from “Remember Me.”

“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.

“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.

“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.

“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.

“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.

“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.

“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.

“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.

“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.

“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.

“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.

“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.

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.

“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.

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.

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.

“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.

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.

CREDIT: “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.

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!

People Who Worked On ‘Toy Story 4’ Hinted At Bonnie’s Dad Being Latino

People Who Worked On ‘Toy Story 4’ Hinted At Bonnie’s Dad Being Latino

toystory / Instagram

Toy Story 4, the long-awaited fourth film of the Toy Story franchise, hit theaters this June and we were reunited with favorites like Woody and Buzz Lightyear. We also became acquainted with a few new faces, while coming to the realization that an animated movie can still make us ugly cry.

Between meeting Forky, Gabby Gabby, Ducky and Bunny, and Duke Caboom (hey, Keanu!), Toy Story 4 introduced us to a plethora of new characters. We even met Bo Peep again, whom you might remember has been MIA for a bit. And she comes back in this fourth installment as a whole new badass Bo Peep!

There was one character in particular who stood out among the rest: Bonnie’s dad.

If you recall, Bonnie is the toddler in Toy Story 3 who Andy gives away all his toys to, including his beloved Woody, before he heads off to college.

With his dark hair and caramel-like complexion, Bonnie’s dad clearly looked ethnically ambiguous. We wondered what he could be and thus it raised the question, could Bonnie’s dad be Latino? He reminded us of some of our dads, tios, primos, and friends. Even when we first saw Bonnie Anderson in Toy Story 3, we knew there was something different about her. She also had ambiguous features and didn’t quite look like the standard white character we were so used to seeing in Toy Story‘s past — or many cartoon films for that matter. But at that time, we had only seen her mom.

Bonnie’s dad is actually voiced by Mexican-American actor Jay Hernandez — who revealed in several interviews discussing Toy Story 4 that he has always been a fan of the franchise and dreamed of one day voicing a character for a Disney-Pixar movie — so if we needed any clues this one is certainly it. While on the red carpet of the Toy Story 4 world premiere, Hernandez revealed that the film’s creative team even began adding touches to Bonnie’s dad that were true to him. “I went to the session wearing Converse Chuck Taylors… certain kinds of shoes, and they added that to my character, which wasn’t originally there,” the Magnum P.I. actor said. “So I thought it was sort of an homage to me, it was cool.”

In a recent interview with Remezcla, Pixar producer Jonas Rivera, who also happens to be Mexican-American, noted that our assumptions about Bonnie’s dad possibly being Latino could indeed be right.

“We never named him; he’s just Bonnie’s Dad. But in my mind, and since I know him well I feel I can speak for Albert [Lozano], the character is a reflection of our families. Albert’s dad is Mexican American like my dad is. That’s how we see dads,” Rivera said. He noted that growing up in a home with a Mexican father and mother of English Canadian descent also inspired the design of Bonnie’s parents. “We thought Bonnie’s dad would be closer to that model of a family. I know a lot of families that way in California,” he explained.

“When we made Toy Story 3, all my family thought she was based on my sister Raquel because she looked liked her when she was really little, and now in [Toy Story 4], Bonnie sort of looks like my niece Carly.”

The question then remains, was the casting of Jay Hernandez to voice the character of Bonnie’s dad therefore intentional? 

Maybe not quite, but Rivera explained that Jay just embodied what they were searching for in Bonnie’s dad perfectly.

“As a parent of three, the character is easy to relate to. He is the dad that’s always a little behind everything, and Jay was able to bring that in a truthful way,” Rivera told Remezcla. “To be totally honest with you, it wasn’t like, ‘Let’s find a Latino actor;’ it was more like, ‘Let’s find the right guy,’ but when I saw who it was with [director] Josh Cooley and [producer] Mark Nielsen, that was a bonus for me. I thought it’d be great if we could also have more diversity.”

He continued, “We make animated films about toys, monsters, and superheroes, but really we want them to be relatable to everybody and one of the ways you do that is if your films are diverse, not only the characters in the films but the people making them.”

Fans are loving the diversity the movie is bringing to the Toy Story universe.

The film did relatively well on having more diversity in its lineup of actors, adding the voices of those like Hernandez, Jordan Peele, Keegan-Michael Key, and Ally Maki. Toy Story 4 also showcased a lesbian couple dropping off and picking up their daughter from daycare. And the lost little girl we see at the carnival, who Gabby Gabby tries to console and ultimately winds up being able to claim as her own kid, is Black.

Toy Story 4 picks up right where Toy Story 3 left off, but not before momentarily taking us back in time to tell fans what happened to Bo Peep and her sheep. The Disney-Pixar picture dives deeper into Bonnie’s world as she heads off for Kindergarten orientation and shows us once again just how far Woody will go for his kid. Woody, Forky, Buzz and the rest of the gang wind up on an epic adventure after Bonnie’s dad declares they’re going on an end-of-summer road trip.

The family’s road trip places Woody on an unexpected journey through an antique store, with little Forky (who becomes almost like Woody’s child) in tow. And even Bonnie’s dad runs into some serious bumps along the way to their destination. Oh, and if you were still doubting that he could be Latino, just wait to see his reactions to a lot of the challenges he faces.

The Internet Has Figured Out The #DisneylandFight Story And It Is A Doozy

Things That Matter

The Internet Has Figured Out The #DisneylandFight Story And It Is A Doozy

Inman Entertainment / YouTube

In case you missed it, there was a full out, nearly five-minute brawl at Disneyland on Sunday, and it was all captured on video. In the brutal video, we mostly see a man in a red shirt throwing punches at several different women and men. The actions are hard to watch, but the startling scene has the Internet obsessed. The brawl broke out right in front of Goofy’s Playhouse in Toontown, and the original video clip now has over 3 million views. Everyone in the brawl is assumed to be part of the same family.

If you’ve seen the video, you’ve probably only had the emotional bandwidth to ask this question.

Someone insulted someone’s mother, another mother was thrown to the ground, and it seems like everyone is just going at each other, regardless of gender or relation. It was a sad scene to 

The narrative of the story is that they are related, hence the fact that they stayed together despite the fighting.

It doesn’t seem like it’s two separate families defending their own. They seem to be related to each other, which makes the fight exceptionally sad.

The Internet has provided a flow chart.

None of this is confirmed by the family or authorities. We’re all in this together. From here on out, the term “we” will be used to describe the collective Internet “we.” We think White Shirt girl, Red Shirt and Black Shirt Girl are all siblings. Their mom is the Mama in the wheelchair.

White Shirt Girl dissed Red Shirt Guy’s girlfriend (Tan Shirt Girl).

Red Shirt Guy clearly has the biggest temper of them all, and resorted to physically attacking (what we think is) his sister. Her boyfriend (White Shirt Guy) stepped in to defend her. Then they start dancing around like they’re in a boxing ring. Black Shirt girl tries to intervene to get them to stop fighting. Then White Shirt guy just punches Tan Shirt Girl (Red Shirt’s girlfriend) straight in the nose. Now it’s really getting heated between Red Shirt Guy and White Shirt Guy.

While trying to intervene, Mama gets knocked down in the fight.

Now Red Shirt Guy is yelling, “I’m ready to go to jail tonight. I’m ready to go to jail.” Then Red Shirt Guy sees White Shirt Guy and starts yelling “fired on my motherf***ing b****, put your hands around my b****!” White Shirt Guy starts retreating, but Red Shirt Guy pulls White Shirt Guy’s girlfriend (also wearing a white shirt) by her hair.

Things start to calm down until Black Shirt Girl tells Red Shirt Guy that his girlfriend (Tan Shirt Girl) hit his Mama.

He turns to his girlfriend saying, “You hit my mama?” Tan shirt tries to explain that it was an accident (it was), but he punches her straight in the face. Then he starts violently pounding on her on the ground while a group of people tries to lift him off her. He pulls her hair along with him. Red Shirt Guy is finally restrained in a chokehold, and then the security finally shows up.

This whole time, the only Disney employee intervening is an older custodian.

Our hearts dropped for fear this older man would be violently attacked but he thankfully wasn’t. There are memes on memes of other Disney employees in costume just standing around.

Other folks are getting philosophical about the many bystanders who did nothing.

Magic Mountain is side-eyeing this whole brawl so hard right now.

Meanwhile, Universal fans are taking the moment to show appreciation for their theme park of choice.

For all the shade amusement park goers throw at each other, we still don’t understand how this mega fight happened in Toontown.

This one media outlet’s narration has truly tickled The Internet.

Credit: @Iffy_Mae / Twitter

This reporter describes the fight with vivid detail. Rewatching the fight with narration that sounds like “but then, he slapped the daylights out of her,” is truly rewarding if you’re into that kind of thing.

The family maintains it never happened.

The family was all released once they all told park authorities that the fight never happened. Once the video footage came out, however, their questionable loyalty didn’t matter.  Orange County prosecutors are currently reviewing the video to determine whether criminal charges will be filed. If they decide to file felony charges, the county district attorney’s office will also assess misdemeanor counts. If they don’t find any grounds for felony charges, the Anaheim city attorney would take over to pursue misdemeanor charges.

You can watch the fight below.
