Here’s How People Are Reacting To The News Of ‘Remember Me’ From ‘Coco’ Being Performed At The Oscars

The Academy has announced the musical artists performing at the Oscars this Sunday night and it is causing people to get very emotional.

This is not a drill.

“Remember Me” is nominated for Best Original Song. Other nominees and performers include Mary J. Blige singing “Mighty River” from the film “Mudbound;” Sufjan Stevens will sing “Mystery of Love” from “Call Me By Your Name;” Keala Settle is singing “This Is Me” from “The Greatest Showman,” and Common and Andra Day are performing “Stand Up for Something” from “Marshall.”

Gael García Bernal, Natalia LaFourcade, and Miguel will take the stage and perform “Remember Me” from “Coco” and that’s kind of major.

“We’re excited to have these talented artists showcase the powerful contribution music makes to filmmaking,” show producers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd said in a press statement. “It’s a privilege to welcome them to the 90th Oscars stage.”

Do you remember “Remember Me”? Here’s the version you can look forward to.

This bilingual version will surely make Latinxs delight with joy during the live performance. But we’re just wondering how Bernal will join in on this rendition.

As you recall, Bernal plays Hector, a lonely street musician, desperate to return to the living to see his family. Here’s the version he sang in the movie.

If he sings that lullaby version we might just die.

People on Twitter are already losing it with the Oscar announcement.

The film’s director, Lee Unkrich, is pretty excited to have Bernal, Miguel, and LaFourcade represent the movie, which is also nominated for Best Animated Film.

Some are wondering if “Remember Me” will be played during the “In Memoriam” segment of the show.

That would make perfect sense, especially because it’s honoring those that passed away this year.

Just the thought of seeing Bernal at the Oscars is already too much for some people to take.

Let’s see how many times the camera operators show Bernal on camera.

People are already expecting their bodies to give out.

We suggest recording the performance because chances are you might miss it the first time around.

Legit, people cannot wait for this performance.

Prepare to be a wreck for days to come.

We expect everyone to be glued to the tv when this performance begins.

The 90th Academy Awards airs this Sunday at 5 p.m. (PST) on ABC.

This Elementary School Held A Flash Mob Where Kids Dressed Up And Danced To Selena And Celia Cruz And I’m Crying At My Desk

The fear of losing our Latinidad as our kids learn to assimilate to American culture is very real. As new and older generations come and go, younger Latinos born in the U.S. are less likely to speak Spanish, and know how to cook certain recipes or the moves of certain dances. Fortunately, one elementary located in the city of Los Angeles, California is taking literal steps and classes to ensure la cultura never dies.

In a recent post to the elementary school’s Facebook page, little kids are seen putting on a performance of Selena’s “La Caracha.”

[Click the image to watch the video]

In the video posted to Facebook, dozens of kindergarten students from Euclid Avenue Elementary are seen dancing along to “La Carcacha.” While the boys wear leather vests, the girls are suited up in outfits that channel Selena’s purple jumpsuit.

But the display of vida did NOT stop there.

The event soon turned into a display of Afro-Latina celebration when the school’s second graders turned up for Celia Cruz

Like just LOOK at all of those little Celia’s in training dancing to “La Vida Es Un Carnaval.”

And because the party could just not stop the school’s First Graders danced to “Un Poco Loco” from Coco.

Honestly, my heart is about to burst watching these little guys expertly dance to the “Coco” theme song. And not only are the kids wearing the sweetest traditional outfits the little boys are wearing fake guitars!!!!

Guys!! And The Third Graders Dance the Tarantela!

And there goes my heart. Bursting into a million little pieces and being simultaneously full again.

These Fans Theories About What A ‘Coco’ Sequel Would Look Like Sees Miguel At 17 And Returning To The Land Of The Dead

To say our worlds were rocked when Pixar finally gave us a touching film about la cultura a few years ago would be the biggest understatement of the century. ‘Coco,’ the 2017 American 3D computer-animated fantasy starring Gael García Bernal and Benjamin Bratt filled our hearts and also brought us to tears. Still, as satisfying as the film was, there’s no doubt it left us craving more. And it looks like we might just get it.

An IMDB page for Coco 2 has been created and I’m sorry but I can’t stop freaking out!!

According to IMDB user anthandsoc-95189 who appears to have long had the inside scoop on upcoming films, ‘Coco 2: Return To the Land Of the Living’ is in the works! Some digging around has also revealed that another sight might have information on the plot and characters of the sequel film. Of course, this information has yet to be confirmed and might be purely a wish, but if it is we’ll dream big!

According to IMDB ‘Coco 2’ will take place 6 years after the first film

The IMDB page says “It’s been 6 years since the events happened for Miguel. But when Hector, Imelda, and his great grand-abuelos need Miguel’s help to come back to the Land of the Living because some mysterious sinister masked skeleton is haunting and rules their world with an iron fist and sword and hates music.”

Which means, if IMDB is correct, we haven’t seen the last of Mama Coco!

Sweet Coco could have a really big role in the new film!!

Of course, other sites have other insights into the could-be sequel…

Because of course everyone has an opinion!

According to Fandom.com ‘Coco 2’ will take place six years after the first film.

We’ll see Miguel’s family attempt to throw him a fiesta, but sadly Miguel, still upset about Mama Coco’s death, will be upset.

When Miguel meets a sophisticated, ghostly and well-bred skeletal spirit Miguel will attempt to return to The Land Of The Dead for a vacation.

Now that’s an insane idea for a spring break.

In this version of the sequel, Miguel will a dark black hole to go back to The Land Of The Dead, to see Papa Hector and Mamma Imelda.

Of course, Miguel will be astonished when he sees his old family members for another time and finally gets to see Mama Coco.

Soon enough, Miguel is racing against time, once again, to avoid being a skeleton.

But this time, Marcel might not be so bothered by the idea of living amongst the dead for forever.

Of course, all of this is speculative. Who knows if Pixar has plans for a sequel in the works, but as one fan points out this clip by Pixar on the DVD release has some great hints!
