Coco is the latest Disney Pixar project to hit theaters and people have been really excited to see it. The animated film which focuses on Latin culture is performing well with critics and audiences and has already made more than $150 million at the box-office.
Still, many people were angry before the movie even began and now the production team and movie theaters will have to address the issue.
The plot follows a young boy named Miguel who dreams of becoming an accomplished musician despite the fact that pursuing this profession will put him at odds with his family. As he aspires to become like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz, he ends up in the Land of the Dead, a colorful world filled with incredible characters such as the charming trickster, Héctor. The pair embark on a journey that ultimate leads Miguel to discover the important truth about his roots.
Heartwarming, right? Here’s where the frustration begins.
In order to get to Coco audiences have had to sit through an animated short based on the Frozen series. Additionally, while shorts are not uncommon before children’s films, Olaf’s Frozen Adventure is more than 20 minutes long! That’s crazy!
Many of the people who have gone to see Coco have complained that the two movies not only have nothing in common but that the lives of Elsa, Anna, and Olaf are so whimsical and “white” that it feels inappropriate as an introduction to Coco.
As a result, the Olaf short is being pulled as of December 8th so, if you’ve had your heart set on seeing it, you’ve got a few days.
