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.
When originally released, the film featured the short film Olaf's Frozen Adventure (2017) before the film, which runs 22 minutes long. Many moviegoers thought they had wandered into the wrong film. Beginning December 7, 2017, Olaf's Frozen Adventure (2017) was withdrawn from theatrical release, and no short film was substituted in its place.
Miguel: Mamá Imelda?
Mamá Imelda: WHAT is going on?
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.
