Pixar presents quality films in 2017
Back in 2015, Pixar released two films in one year, “Inside Out” and “The Good Dinosaur.” A year later, Disney Animation released another three animated gems, “Zootopia” and “Moana” and the sequel “Finding Dory.”
This year, Pixar released another two films, “Cars 3” and “Coco.”
In “Cars 3”, which is follows “Cars” and “Cars 2,” focuses on racecar Lightning McQueen, voiced by Owen Wilson, getting back on the track. Throughout the movie, McQueen goes through the hardships of being a veteran and receives help with the newcomer Cruz Ramirez, voiced by Cristela Alonzo.
Then comes the Mexican-themed film “Coco,” which focuses on Miguel Rivera, voiced by Anthony Gonzalez. Miguel goes into the Land of the Dead in search of his musical idol Ernesto de la Cruz, voiced by Benjamin Bratt, with the help from a trickster spirit named Hector, voiced by Gael Garcia Bernal.
What makes these two Pixar films good is the storyline. “Cars 3” focuses on McQueen’s hardships when facing the next generation races; his past times involving Doc Hudson; and his bond with Cruz Ramirez.
In “Coco”, the film’s focuses on family, which is really emotional and touching. Miguel’s family doesn’t like music, because his great-great grandfather left his family behind to share his music with the world. Miguel loves music and tries to get his great-great grandfather’s blessing to bring music back to his family. By the end of the film, Miguel manages to weave his family back together.
Pixar has done their fair share of wonderful sequels, such as “Finding Dory” and “Toy Story 3,” and “Cars 3” is another good. Cruz Ramirez is also good addition to the “Cars” franchise.
“Coco” gives a taste of Mexican culture and I thought the music in the film is good as well.
Pixar gave us two emotional films in the year of 2017 with their sequel and original film. Fantastic job, Pixar.
