Disney Pixar’s Coco hits theaters on Wednesday, just in time for families enjoying the Thanksgiving holiday together. This entertainment option will also be extended to Spanish-speaking families who might not speak or understand English. Before we explore the details of this exhibition model, let’s review the significance of Coco as a film. The story follows Miguel, a 12-year-old Mexican boy who dreams of becoming a musician.

Don’t skip this. Here’s the first official trailer (+ poster) for Greg Barker’s documentary The Final Year, from YouTube: The Final Year gives a look at the inner …
