‘Coco’ to Premiere at Mexico’s Morelia International Film Festival

Pixar’s next feature film, Coco, is set to have its world premiere at Mexico’s Morelia International Film Festival on October 20th. That’s over a month before the US release date!

This gives me a *bit* more hope regarding Disney/Pixar’s handling of Mexican culture, heritage and tradition in regards to this film. Some of you may remember the incredibly stupid mistakes the company made re: Coco, up to and including trying to copyright the term ‘Día de los Muertos,’ –  the traditional holiday celebrated on November 1 and 2 in Mexico and across Latin America that honors the lives of lost family members or friends.

Yeah, that was pretty stupid. This is not. This is good!
