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.
The character "The General" fades away, possibly referring to the quote by General Douglas MacArthur, "Old soldiers never die, they just fade away."
Mijo, I was so worried.
Mamá Imelda: And you, how many times must I turn you away?
Mamá Imelda: I want nothing to do with you! Not in life, not in death! I spent decades protecting my family from *your* mistakes. He spends five minutes with you, and I have to fish ...
When Miguel's abuelita catches him in the plaza with the Mariachi, Miguel pushes the guitar back. The Mariachi puts his hands up to keep his sombrero on and between shots, the guitar flips over in his lap. In one shot, the neck is on the Mariachi's right hand--the position Miguel, facing opposite, was holding it in--and in the next, the neck is on the Mariachi's left hand, as if the Mariachi was about to play it.
The Walt Disney Pictures opening logo's music, the orchestral version of "When You Wish Upon a Star", is played in the Mexican mariachi style.
