Epcot's Mexico pavilion is celebrating Disney Pixar's newest film, "Coco," by weaving the story of Miguel and his family into the newest entertainment offerings there.
El Mariachi Coco de Santa Cecilia, a new musical group inspired by the film, will entertain guests at the Mexico Pavilion through Jan. 6, according to Disney.
Orlando Everyday reported Disney was holding auditions for this new group in August. (Read that story here: http://www.orlandoeveryday.com/news/new-offering-for-epcot-holiday-events-teased-on-disney-audition-calendar )
According to Disney, El Mariachi Coco de Santa Cecilia perform songs from the movie including “Remember Me” and “The World Es Mi Familia.”
"Coco," which was released earlier this month, tells the story of Miguel, who dreams of becoming a musician despite his family's long-running ban on music. In the visually-stunning film, Miguel learns his family history and uncovers some horrible news when he is transported to the Land of the Dead.
The pavilion is currently housing a collection of "Dia De Muertos" artwork, but it will also soon feature an exhibit that showcases scenes from the movie, according to Disney.
Disney PhotoPass photographers are also getting in on the "Coco" love with special Magic Shots being offered in the pavilion.
