Hi everyone –
Since most of us are primarily indoors for the time being, it is nice to see more quality content coming soon to Disney+. I am especially looking forward to “A Celebration of the Music from Coco”, which was performed live last November at the Hollywood Bowl. Look for the premiere on Disney+ on April 10th! Information from Disney is below.

Disney and Pixar’s “Coco” follows a 12-year-old boy named Miguel who dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz despite his family’s generations-old ban on music. Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Héctor, and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.
“A Celebration of the Music from Coco” for Disney+ is directed by Ron de Moraes and produced by Eventvision, with Gary M. Lanvy, Rob Paine and R.A. Clark serving as executive producers.
