COCO (2017) Movie Preview
"WE ARE ALL APART OF THOSE WHO CAME BEFORE" --COCO
Imagine at a time of mass deportation of Mexican immigrants and building a wall at the Mexico border to make a major movie feature with an entire Spanish cast and set in Mexico! This is what Pixar, yes Pixar, has done.
This is astonishing news totally caught me off guard.
I am excited. Because the Bible teaches, "From one man he made all the nations (Acts 17:26a)." And that we are all children of the same ancient mother (Eve -Genesis 3:2). En otras palaberis, we are all cousins and part of the same family. No wonder the Bible teaches us to "love one another."
Pixar's new animated feature COCO celebrates this truth. In a time of adversity, xenophobia and blatant racism isn't it wonderful this this film should be made? Pixar has trully done a Jesus-thing!
