My guess is that Coco is the name of Miguel's late grandmother that reunites with him

The thing is, if this name refers to a well-known Mexican... what would you call this? Myth? Story? Anyway, Coco is well known in Mexico, so it wouldn't make any sense to me to name a character Coco and not reference the monster in any way. It would probably look like an oversight on Pixar's part, as if they didn't know the name was "taken." [/my two cents]

And Andrés, welcome to the forum, too! [smile]

I am surprised by the name. The logo looks appealing to the eyes and captures the festivities colorfulness. The word coco means coconut in spanish, but it is also used to refer a monster. As a kid your parents would tell you the coco would come to take you with him, or more horrifying, eat you, if you don't go to sleep as ordered. That way you would be scared of disobey them.

First off, welcome to the forum Dannel, we really appreciate you joining to chat with us! Thank you for the additional insights on Coco as well (thanks to Luis too)!

Additionally, I'd also like to welcome Andrés Sánchez to the forums as well!! [Cool_zpsf7e1371b]

Well Coco doesn't mean "monster" in Spanish. That would be generalizing and justifying every monster to be called Coco. Coco is a specific monster.. It supposed to come out at night and eat the bad kids that haven't gone to sleep. (although the story is tweaked all across of Mexico) Some people see it as the most effective way to get your child to sleep. But I see it as the most effective way to make your child need a psychiatrist. 

There's not a specific visual representation of El Coco.

To simplify my point, El Coco is to Mexican people, what the Boogeyman is to Amercian people.

I can't realy see how El Coco would play into a movie about the Day of the Dead, unless his family was killed by El Coco. 

It is a rather interesting title for a Pixar movie if you ask me, hopefully we find out sooner than later.


Huh, interesting, thanks for clearing that up!

Perhaps Coco is a villain character? But then the poster just looks so festive and all.

Or maybe they'll be following a Ratatouille-esque approach to the title and title the movie after something in the film that's comparatively minor.

I hope people don't call Coco a rip-off of The Book of Life.

People have been calling it a rip off of Book of Life for over a year. Apparently there can only be one movie about Day of the Dead, even though we have dozens of movies about other holidays. 

I cannot properly express how sick I am of seeing "I don't get why they didn't cancel it like Newt". The answer is always "Because there's a difference between sharing a plot element and sharing a plot". 

But we really shouldn't be surprised. This happens for every Pixar movie now. Good Dinosaur is apparently an Ice Age rip off. I swear, next time Pixar makes an original movie, we need to all take guesses on what everyone's going to accuse it of so totally ripping off based on one line concept summary alone.


*Deep breath* Sorry, I've been waiting to explode on that for a while.

Toy Story ends on Christmas! Surely, it must rip off every Christmas movie in existence! ^^

I just try not to listen to those claims. People tend to want to accuse Pixar of being unoriginal without having seen the movie in question, so if it's not a sequel or prequel, then obviously, they'll have to find a different reason.

To clarify: If after seeing Coco, I feel it is unoriginal, I won't hesitate to point it out - but with what little information we have right now? That's just stupid.

Lol, because dinosaurs totally existed during the Ice Age (ok I know they found some eggs in one of the ice age movies but still). The mammalian megafauna wouldn't have even existed without Dinosaur extinction. I'm surprised people haven't said it's a Land Before Time ripoff instead.

People are comparing The Good Dinosaur to Ice Age? Really? I get that it has a similar plot point, but it definitely isn't a rip-off. Coming up with an entirely original story is very close to impossible, as so many movies and books and stories have been made throughout history and it is impossible to not come up with something that seems familiar.

People love to call things "rip off" of something else and it really frustrates me immensely. Inside Out was called by some a rip off of Herman's Head and Osmosis Jones, just because they all take place in the brain/mind/body. But what these geniuses don't know is that nothing will be 100% original.. at least not anymore. There are millions of stories, movies, short films, books, fan fictions, among others out there and what makes something original is the execution. If one day you woke up and decided to write a script about a talking toilet, odds are its been manifested in SOME way before. Same with Coco and Book of Life. They better not call Coco a rip off just because they are both about the day of the dead. Is Halloween a ripoff of Nightmare Before Christmas just because they both take place during Halloween? No. Is Home Alone a rip off of Bad Santa because they both take place in Christmas? No. Coco should be welcomed just as well as the others.

Seriously though, Pixar did not work their butts off for 3-5 years just so people can call their movies a "ripoff" and throw it down the drain.

Okay so we have coconut, then the bogeyman, and now skull as the possible meanings behind the title. I don't read Spanish but I'm assuming the first definition is for coconut? I Google Translated "cocotero" and it looks like the longer version of "coconut". And it looks like there's a fourth possible definition but you've left that out.

Yes, "skull" would definitely make sense, for obvious reasons. Perhaps Pixar's just gonna keep the title simple then, and not make it something complicated that dedicated fans can rip apart to predict possible plot details.

Also, welcome to the forums btw! [smile]
