Pixar's latest masterpiece, "Coco," is bringing in all the dollars!!
The newest animated gem is a story about a Mexican boy learning about his family in correlation with the 'Day of the Dead.'
Audiences have gone crazy for it and it holds a near perfect Rotten Tomatoes score.
However, before you see the film you have to witness the newest Disney short, another chapter in the "Frozen" saga. And this 20 minute piece of cinema has not gone over well with audiences.
In fact this has been such an issue the director of "Coco" spoke out on the matter.
Adrian Molina, co-director and writer on Pixar’s “Coco,” stated :
“We’ve always, even at the conception, liked this idea that these are two stories about family traditions, and understanding what your family traditions are.”
Molina said that the longer format was “a little bit of an experiment.” And, “It is longer than, I think, any other short that has ever been attached to one of these films, so I’ve heard that that has taken people by surprise.”
You can say that again. Since the release fans have been up in arms.

Sometimes I wake up covered in sweat and screaming, filled with the horrifying certainty that I’m STILL watching that seemingly endless Frozen “short” that played before Coco.— Jhonen Vasquez (@JhonenV) November 26, 2017
