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.
Aside from Mama Coco, and the deceased relatives that Miguel meets, no one knows the names of the living relatives. Miguel calls his uncle Tio Berto, but the others are simply addressed as "Mama", "Papa" and "Abuelita", until Miguel sings to Mama Coco at the end, and when Abuelita sniffles, Mama Coco turns to her and calls her by her name, which is Elaina.
A minute ago I thought I was related to a murderer! You're a total upgrade!
When Miguel is playing his guitar and singing in the talent show in the Land of the Dead, it's not just his guitar that is heard, but other instruments including horns.
At the end of the closing credits, there is an ofrenda to the deceased people who inspired the filmmakers of Coco, in the form of a mosaic made from photographs.
