Did You Know?
During one of the visits to an Oaxacan family in Mexico for inspiration, director Lee Unkrich
paid special attention to a traditional ofrenda that holds pictures of the dead, and is also used to offer food during the Día de Muertos. He noticed that the family Basset hound had to be repeatedly chased away from the ofrenda because it tried to eat the food. He found this so amusing that he included a scene in the movie where Miguel is horrified to find Dante eating food from the ofrenda. See more
With Imelda's help, Miguel believes he can save Héctor from being forgotten by reclaiming his photo and taking it home with him -- despite agreeing to Imelda's "no music" condition, and knowing he cannot pass on any memories of Héctor himself. How was he planning on saving him when doing so required the task of rekindling Coco's memories, before the music ban was lifted? See more
