Aspiring musician Miguel, confronted with his family's ancestral ban on music, enters the Land of the Dead to find his great-great-grandfather, a legendary singer.
Lee Unkrich said that the Land of the Dead is an homage to Guanajuato City, a colorful city located in the center of México.
Miguel, I give you my blessing, to go home and...
Miguel: ... to forget about music?
Mamá Imelda: ...And never forget how much your family cares for you.
When Miguel returns to the Land of the Living at sunrise, the doors to Ernesto's tomb are sitting open to allow him out, despite the fact that they were closed and locked earlier in the film. The guitar being on the floor proves that no one entered while Miguel was gone - otherwise, they would have returned it to its spot on the wall.
On the opening Pixar logo, the last sound is muted. After the lamp stops moving as usual, a bell chiming is heard leading to the opening shot.
