Pixar Fans Are Getting Very Emotional After It Was Announced That ‘Coco’ Will Make It To The US In Spanish

Spanish-speaking fans of Disney Pixar animated movies have some great news to celebrate. “Coco,” the largest box office success in Mexican history, has lots of people in the U.S. hyped to see the movie. Although the general release of “Coco” is in English, lots of Spanish speakers were wondering if they would have the choice to experience the film en Español. Director Lee Unkrich has answered the calls and took to Twitter to announce that “Coco” is going to be released in certain locations either dubbed in Spanish or with Spanish subtitles. The list of locations for the Spanish-language films has not been released but the mere news that those who are intimately connected to the holiday are able to fully enjoy the film has fans stoked.

Unkrich announced via Twitter that some Spanish-speakers will get to enjoy “Coco” in their native tongue.

Pixar’s latest film, “Coco” follows a young Mexican boy named Miguel who wants to become a musician despite his family’s wishes. When he enters the Land of the Dead, he goes on a journey that will change his idea of family forever. “Coco” will be a visual treat to those who are familiar or wish to know more Dia de los Muertos.

Fans are excited to see the movie come to life just how they had imagined.

Especially those who have been trying to get someone to listen to their request.

Earlier this month, someone created a petition calling for the movie to be released with Spanish subtitles.

Whether or not the folks at Disney heard about the petition is unclear.

The gesture to serve a community is moving some people to tears.

Mainly, folks are happy that they can take their parents to experience the movie together.

Even the in-laws. Now that is some real love.

Bien hecho, Disney.

Jennifer Lopez has been an acting treasure since she portrayed Selena in 1997. Her role in “Hustlers” has received praise since the movie was released earlier this year with a lot of Oscar buzz. Now, it seems more and more likely that J.Lo will get a highly coveted Oscar nomination as other nominations are starting to roll in and she is so excited.

The first award nomination that came in was from the Critics’ Choice Awards.

The Critics’ Choice Awards is presented annually by the American-Canadian Broadcast Film Critics Association. J.Lo is competing in the category against Laura Dern in “Marriage Story,” Scarlett Johansson “Jojo Rabbit,” Florence Pugh “Little Women,” Margot Robbie in “Bombshell,” and Zhao Shuzhen “The Farewell.”

J.Lo really lit up when she was informed that she was nominated for the Golden Globes.

“Hi, guys! I’m just waking up and I just heard that I got nominated for ‘Best Supporting Actress’ for a Golden Globe. Oh my God,” J.Lo said in a video shared on social media to her fans. “It’s been 20 years since I was nominated for ‘Selena.’ I just want to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for this incredible honor. I am humbled and so excited to be recognized for this role as Ramona in ‘Hustlers.’ Thank you so much and I’ll see you at the Globes.”

Of course, the always attentive and supportive AROD was there to shoot his own behind the scenes video of her recording her video.

AROD has been a supporting partner in J.Lo’s career since the two got together. He is there at her concerts backstage to pick her up and give her praise. He has accompanied her to award shows and showered her with love and appreciation for the work she does as an entertainer, mother, partner, and human being. Tbh, AROD is simply the best partner anyone could ask for.

Fans are so excited to see their favorite person getting such incredible honors for her work in “Hustlers.”

“Hustlers,” for those who haven’t seen it, follows a group of women who use drugs and finesse to get money from clients at a popular strip club. The women take things a bit too far and everything starts to unravel and Ramona, the ringleader, tries her best to keep all of the women in check before things get too real.

Fans are showering the singer and actress with love and praise for her nominations.

There’s been a lot of Oscar buzz since the movie was released and the buzz is only getting stronger. J.Lo gave a powerful and compelling performance as a stripper breaking the law to make sure she and her friends are all taken care of financially. It is a story of a group of strippers playing Robin Hood with some of Wall Street’s biggest earners and how it all falls apart.

If the trend continues, it won’t be long until we see J.Lo winning some awards this season.
