Fans Are Praising Netflix For Streaming ‘Coco’ In English And Spanish Allowing Everyone To Enjoy The Movie

If you’re a fan of “Coco” you’ve probably already saw the film a dozen times both in the movie theater and on DVD. Like, who didn’t buy the movie the moment it came out? Well, now you have another way to ugly cry in the comfort of your own home. “Coco” is now on Netflix and streaming customers are freaking out – in both English and Spanish.

“Coco” is finally available to stream on Netflix.

The family favorite, which follows Miguel on his Día de los Muertos adventure, is available on Netflix in English and Spanish. You’ll be able to watch it with your parents and your abuelos, which is how this movie should be enjoyed, tbh.

Netflix is debuting a ton of films this month, but this one is the one people are most excited for.

It doesn’t matter that it was released in the middle of the week, people are already tuning in.

Grab those tissues because even though you already know what happens, you’re still going to be bawling.

People are literally watching it at work.

While the movie hit the big screens last fall, it became a huge cultural phenomenon before it was even released.

Latinos knew this movie would be a hit, and it was. It went on to win a Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature and Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. But to us, award or not, “Coco” is a winner regardless.

Since the movie is being released in Spanish and English, people are really taking advantage of this cool feature.

Perhaps others will use the film in both languages as a means to learn English or Spanish.

People on social media are going a bit crazy now that “Coco” is just a remote button away.

They have nothing else to focus on. Can you blame them?

The movie is even helping people function better at home.

Parenting in the 21st century.

Even if you already own the movie you can never have too much “Coco.”

If you know a “Coco” fan that has disappeared, you know where they’ll be in front of the TV.

It’s like the world just got a little bit better.

Our feelings exactly.

Michelle Obama Will Be Cooking With Kids In Her New Netflix Show

Michelle Obama Will Be Cooking With Kids In Her New Netflix Show

As if we needed another reason to tune into Netflix, Michelle Obama will be bringing a new cooking show to the streaming giant aimed towards kids. The former First Lady was well-known for her health and fitness initiatives while in the White House and now she’s bringing that same passion to a fun new cooking show.

Michelle Obama launches a new cooking show on Netflix for kids.

The former first lady announced on Instagram that she’s launching a children’s cooking program, called Waffles + Mochi. The show will follow two Muppets-esque puppets – Waffles and Mochi – who dream of becoming chefs. One day, they’re hired by a magical supermarket and embark on a series of far-flung adventures to discover new foods from around the world. They travel to Peru to try potatoes in the Andes, try spices in Italy, and make miso in Japan—finding plenty of friends along the way. According to Netflix, Obama will act as the grocery store’s friendly owner.

The show starts streaming on March 16. Although it’s aimed at children, she says parents will enjoy it too: “I know that adults will also get plenty of laughs—and some tips for the kitchen.”

The show is in many ways an extension of Obama’s platform as First Lady.

The theme of the show closely aligns with Obama’s “Let’s Move!” public health campaign, which was aimed at curbing childhood obesity. As one of her signature platforms, she tried to lead initiatives that helped families get access to healthy, affordable foods and increase their physical activities.

“In many ways, this show is an extension of my work to support children’s health as First Lady—and to be quite honest, I wish a program like this had been around when my girls were young,” Obama wrote on Instagram. “I also know that this is a difficult time for so many families, and I’m hopeful that this delightful show can bring a bit of light and laughter to homes around the world.”

“Waffles + Mochi” is just one of the former First Lady’s many media ventures. Her “Becoming” documentary is already on Netflix, and in 2020, she launched a podcast on Spotify. Barack and Michelle Obama’s Higher Ground Productions has a multi-year production deal with Netflix.
