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.
Early in the film after Miguel meets Dante, pinatas of Buzz Lightyear, Woody and Mike Wazowski can be seen hanging from a porch.
Ernesto de la Cruz:
Don't I know you?
Mamá Imelda: That's for murdering the love of my life!
Ernesto de la Cruz: Who the...?
Héctor: She's talking about me!
Héctor: I am the love of your life?
Mamá Imelda: I don't know, I am still angry at you!
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.
