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.

“Coco” is officially out on Blu-Ray and DVD and fans are over the moon.

Whether you purchase it on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray or DVD, “Coco” will finally be yours to own. The added features make it so special.

According to The Geekiary, some bonus features include commentary with director Lee Unkrich, co-director Adrian Molina, and producer Darla K. Anderson who discuss a proof of concept which was produced to get the project approved; how to draw skeleton by Danny Arriaga, the character art director who teaches you how to draw a skeleton, Pixar-style; and, of course, deleted scenes!

To mark this beautiful occasion, Los Angeles City Councilmember Gil Cedillo declared Feb. 27, as Coco Day in L.A.

Cedillo held a special ceremony in front of City Hall, in downtown Los Angeles, alongside Unkrich, Anderson, and actor Anthony Gonzalez, who is the voice of Miguel.

The dedication in L.A. was filled with fans, “Coco” creatives, musicians, and dancers.

The mariachi performed “Un Poco Loco” and “Remember Me.”

The cast of “Coco” was there to celebrate the big day. 

Guests included comedian Gabriel Iglesias (voice of the clerk), creative consult and illustrator Lalo Alcaraz, Renee Victor (voice of la abuelita), and more.

Gonzalez danced and sang for attendees. 

We had no idea he knew the zapateado.

The ceremony also included a Day of the Dead altar and Mexican bread.

They really decorated City Hall so beautifully.

People also celebrated at Disneyland California Adventure Park.

The theme park located adjacent to Disneyland in Anaheim, California, had the grounds decked out in Coco-themed decorations.

The Disney theme park also had folkorico dancers and a mariachi.

It truly feels like Cinco de Mayo and Day of the Dead all rolled into one.

If you can’t be in L.A. for Coco Day, there’s other ways to celebrate.

The L.A. Public Library released a list of children’s book that celebrate Day of the Dead and Mexican culture.

Who is going out to buy the movie today?
