I’m sold on Disney/Pixar’s Coco, methinks.

I don’t know if Coco is a ripoff of The Book of Life or not — I never got around to seeing it* — but the friendly dead could have been right out of Corpse Bride, and I am very fond of Corpse Bride. ┬áPlus, of course, Spanish guitar. ┬áThere’s gonna be tons of it. Which more or less means that I’ll go watch it.

Out for Thanksgiving.

*Yeah, I don’t know why, either.

PS: The song that you’re trying to remember is Bitter Sweet Symphony.

    Saw the trailer for this. After watching it, it occurred to me that Disney currently owns Grim Fandango. And it would be REALLY REALLY REALLY cool if Manny Calavera had a cameo. And Glottis, of course.

    You really should see Book Of Life .. especially (and I mean this in the kindest way possible) if your or Mrs. Lane’s parents aren’t getting any younger.
    Kids need a framework for handling death, and .. the Spanish/Mexican one is a bit healthier than the variant Chicago-drunken-Irish one I inherited … and have *mostly* gotten past.
