The American animated musical fantasy film Coco outclassed by far all the other films that were released during Thanksgiving weekend. It is now ranked amongst other great Disney movies that were released over the years in terms of performance at weekend box office. Coco was received well worldwide. This was first seen by the whopping $50.8 million domestic weekend gross in the US. Additionally, it grossed $82.3 million in other countries for an aggregated worldwide total of $155.2 million. Coco is ranked as the 4th animated movie to score a big Thanksgiving weekend debut, it is behind Frozen, Moana and Toy Story. All movies that have made it, they even have real money pokies based on them.
The animated movie was produced by Pixar and released by Walt Disney Pictures. It stars Anthony Gonzalez, Gael Garcia Bernal, Benjamin Bratt, Alanna Ubach, Renee Victor and Edward James Olmos. The story is about a 12-year-old named Miguel who lives in a small Mexican village with elderly Coco and their family. Miguel is transported by accident to the land of the dead. While he is there, he pleads with his musician great-great-grandfather for help to take him back to his living family. Miguel has to be returned to the living before sunrise or he becomes one of the dead.
