Pixar Fest Is Happening At Disneyland And All Fans Can Talk About Is The Magic That Is ‘Coco’

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! ? ? ?

America Ferrera Celebrates 20th Anniversary Of Working On ‘Gotta Kick It Up’ With Sweet IG Post

It has been 20 years since America Ferrera’s dream of becoming an actor back true. She took to Instagram to reflect on the moment that her dream started to come true and it is a sweet reminder that anyone can chase their dreams.

America Ferrera shared a sweet post reflecting on the 20th anniversary of working on “Gotta Kick It Up!”

“Gotta Kick It Up!” was one of the earliest examples of Latino representation so many of us remember. The movie follows a school dance team trying to be the very best they could possibly be. The team was down on their luck but a new teacher introduces them to a different kind of music to get them going again.

After being introduced to Latin beats, the dance team is renewed. It taps into a cultural moment for the Latinas on the team and the authenticity of the music makes their performances some of the best.

While the movie meant so much to Latino children seeing their culture represented for the first time, the work was a major moment for Ferrera. In the Instagram post, she gushes over the celebrities she saw on the lot she was working on. Of course, anyone would be excited to see Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt hanging out. Yet, what stands out the most is Ferrera’s own excitement to realize that she can make money doing what she loves most.

“I wish I could go back and tell this little baby America that the next 20 years of her life will be filled with unbelievable opportunity to express her talent and plenty of challenges that will allow her to grow into a person, actress, producer, director, activist that she is very proud and grateful to be. We did it baby girl. I’m proud of us,” Ferrera reflects.

Watch the trailer for “Gotta Kick It Up!” here.

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!
