“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.

“It’s amazing what this film has been able to do.”

“Black Panther” is on track to becoming a certifiable hit. The movie was released on Feb. 16 and nine days later it is expected to earn more than $500 million in box office sales. This total has put it above “Spider Man” and it is coming for “Wonder Woman.” Lupita Nyong’o, one of the main actors in the film, is proud of what the film has been able to achieve for black people around the world. Nyong’o sat down with Trevor Noah to talk about the enormously positive impact “Black Panther” and the ideal of Wakanda have had on people of color.

“We could not have predicted this, you know? Not only is the box office quite handsome but the effect it’s having on the world,” Nyong’o told Noah. “For the first time, I have seen people paying for other people to go see the movie and things like that. It’s become this community effort and that is incredible. From the very start when Ryan [Coogler] walked me through the story I was just like, ‘Oh my goodness. This is something that I want to see. This is a dream come true.’ We get to have a superhero that’s African and he’s fly, he’s badass, he’s intelligent, he’s got women all around him that are also badass.”

Nyong’o is also very proud of the effect the movie and the hairstyling has had on black girls and women. Nowhere in the film do you see women with their hair straightened. Every woman is wearing her hair naturally and Nyong’o told Noah that the simple gesture of having natural hair elevates it. It paints a better picture of what it is to be black and free from European standards of beauty.
