Music is a bit of sore subject in Miguel’s family, which wouldn’t be a problem if he didn’t want to be a musician, but he does, and so it is.

In an act of rebellion, Miguel strikes at the core of his family’s morals and runs away in an attempt to enter a music competition on the day of the dead; unfortunately all does not go to plan and Miguel finds himself in the land of the dead amongst his ancestors with a lot of explaining to do.

Death is not a subject that many animators could tackle, but this Disney Pixar collaboration does so with so beautifully crafted precision that one almost forgets that death is at the heart of this majestically orchestrated animation.

From endearing characters to unapologetic honesty, the film breaches the gap between fantasy and reality with such effortless ease, you don’t even remember it happening.

This film is as important to the younger generation, as it is to the old, with the act of remembrance striking at the core of one’s very being.

No one wants to be forgotten, and this animated wonderland reinforces the importance of why.

Despite his age seemingly getting the better of him, Lightning McQueen refuses to let his racing career end in defeat.

With newer and more technologically savvy cars to race against, McQueen, along with the help of his trainer, Cruz, must learn how to outwit the competition with good old fashioned hard-work and commitment.

Though this is now the third film of the Cars series, Disney have managed to keep this film just as entertaining and engaging as the first, through a combination of new characters and an aging story that continues to intrigue.

Lightning McQueen may have had a digital makeover in the Pixar animation studios, but his character has stayed just as loveable as ever, making boys and girls fall in love with his eccentric antics all over again.


Finding Dory

There’s never been a more endearing Disney character then this little blue fish; she’s voiced by Ellen DeGeneres and ready to take on the Ocean.

Now that Nemo is safely back home and reunited with his father, it’s time to begin the next quest; finding Dory’s parents.

But there’s only one problem – she has short term memory lost; not the best ailment to incur when trying to find something.

Luckily for her, Nemo and Marlin are willing to come along to provide much needed moral support.

However, unfortunately for her, it isn’t long until she misplaces them as well.So, just to recap, not only has she lost her parents, but now she’s lost her only friends too. 

But being the lovable fish she is, it’s doesn’t take long until she befriends a somewhat sinister accomplish in the form of a seven tentacled octopus. And so the quest continues.

As always, the cinematography in this film is at its usual outstanding quality, but I would expect nothing less from a Disney Pixar collab.

Finding Dory, did, at first glance, seem like just another excuse for Disney to generate some extra revenue from a preexisting franchise, but it’s heartwarming story and phenomenal animation proved this expectation to be nothing more than a ridiculous rumour.
