Disneyland and Disney California Adventure launched ‘Pixar Fest’ April 13 to celebrate the magic of Pixar classics. The festival celebrating all things Pixar and animated will be going on till Sept. 3 so you have a chance to see the festivities for yourself. Of course the classics like “Toy Story,” “Up” and “Finding Nemo,” are on full display but fans are really digging the “Coco” decorations all over the park.

“Coco” fans have all summer to check out their favorite cartoon characters in Disneyland and Disney California Adventure.

Children (and adults) can visit the park to see their favorites take over the park from parades to shows to a nightly light show on Cinderella’s castle. It is all there.

The “Coco” portion of Pixar Fest’s “Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular” turns the parks into a “Coco” wonderland.

As you can see in the video, the loved ones in the underworld walk along the path with the songs filling the air.

Disneyland’s Main Street U.S.A. gets turned into a colonial plaza in Mexico, with papel picado banners and flower petals visually displayed onto the facades of the shops and buildings.

Dapper skeletons provide as much awe for Miguel from the film as they do for this fan.

The videos on social media is likely to give everyone serious jealousy since they can’t be there for the show.

SOUND ?!! His audible gasp is EVERYTHING. ☺ ☺ ☺ 

Photo opps for that new selfie upload have also been placed around the park, including one with Miguel’s white wooden guitar, as well as his friends Héctor and Dante.

It’s like no one will be able to tell the difference.

This fan came to show off her relationship goals.

? ? ?

Don’t worry, people are confirming that Disneyland has the snacks to match the vibe.

Pssstt… Real friends will wait for you to rearrange their placemats and trays for that perfect #foodie post. 

Of course the merch is top knotch.

This “Coco” jarrita mug inscribed with the film’s endearing line “Remember Me” in English and Spanish is adorable.

Some fans were bummed the merchandise sold out so quickly. 

You have to be quick around these fans.

However, some people aren’t letting Disney off the hook for not having enough merch in stock. 

‘Pixar Fest’ runs through Sept. 3 at both parks, so maybe Disney will have more jarritas by then. Fingers crossed and lighting a candle for ya! ? ? ?

Becky G And Natti Natasha Ridicule The Role Of The Overly-Sexualized Latina In Their Latest Music Video

“It’s so sexy and empowering in a way where some people might feel uncomfortable, but I’m glad.”

In an artist on artist interview, Becky G and Natti Natasha sat down to discuss their latest collaboration on “Sin Pijama” and the personal problems they face as Latinas in the music industry.

If you aren’t already familiar with the storyline of the music video, it shows a man’s idea of a girls night in. In the video it is Prince Royce’s fantasy of what happens on those nights. The music video takes this fantasy to the ultimate extreme, featuring a large group of sexy women in lingerie having a massive party, including bottles of champagne, pillow fights and carousel horses, of course.

All of these sexy scenes in the music video build up to lead to a very different, yet totally realistic conclusion.

In the interview with Natasha, Becky G recalls some of her past experiences as an actor. She admits that she received scripts with character breakdowns that included “Latina […] sex scenes, or girl on girl kissing.” Every time she would receive these character descriptions, she would find herself asking, “Is there a real story to this?”

Becky G sensed that these scripts were written by men were only for the purpose of their own guilty pleasures and she never felt comfortable with that.

This is why Becky G and Natasha decided to take this character portrayal and create a satire of it in “Sin Pijama.” However, not everyone caught on to that…

A lot of the initial reactions to “Sin Pijama” were of disapproval, with comments such as the one above – but this isn’t anything new to Becky G.

After releasing her song “Mayores” in 2017, Becky G was asked to give a live, televised performance by a TV show in Spain. However, they required her to alter her lyrics because of “bad words” that the song had. Even though none of the lyrics in “Mayores” include any curse words, Becky G was asked to change a particular line in her song because it was inappropriately sexualized.

Becky G wasn’t happy with this requirement, but went on to alter her lyrics out of respect to the TV show. As a result, the televised performance began trending throughout the entire country because fans were upset that Becky G was required to change her lyrics. Fans found it to be sexist and degrading.

“Especially in Latin music, it’s hard for people to accept that women can own their sexuality,” Becky G commented. “My sexuality is me. You can’t tell me what makes me feel sexy.”

While Becky G is not comfortable playing the role of an overly-sexualized Latina in a script written by a man, she has no problem with being extremely sexy for herself and she made that clear alongside Natasha in “Sin Pijama.”
