COCO opens in theaters everywhere on November 22nd!
You might not know everyone at this press junket, but I do. I have seen these people in other movies, tv shows or novelas before. It was such a pleasure being able to interview the cast of the movie Pixar Coco. On attendance to the press junket we had: Benjamin Bratt (voice of “Ernesto de la Cruz”), Gael Garcia Bernal (voice of “Hector”), Anthony Gonzalez (voice of “Miguel”), Edward James Olmos (voice of “Chicharron”), Alanna Ubach (voice of “Mama Imelda”), Director Lee Unkrich, Co-Director Adrian Molina and Producer Darla K. Anderson.
Thank you, Disney and Disney Pixar for inviting me to COCO Screening and Press Junket
Just before the junket started we were treated to a performance by Mariachi Divas and some dancers. Nothing like bringing culture before you interview an amazing group of actors. This junket was about celebrating Latin culture in every single way.
Here are some of the interesting facts we learned about the making of the film
Having fun at the press junket
During the junket I also had the opportunity to take a guitar lesson. Let's say it feel great to "perform" for the first time at a fancy hotel in Beverly Hills. I am also not quitting my day job any time soon, but I enjoyed playing some notes with the super cute Coco inspired guitars.
Can I say I want it all? I want the staff plush toys, the funko toys, the jewelry and the clothes. So many cool things, including guitars and games. (I have a giveaway right now if you want to try your luck)
