In fact, some are rather similar. The scenery of both films features massive, tall, colorful, fantastical landscapes. Both have a strong theme with the yellow petals, as is culturally appropriate, and both have fantastic character designs.

As such, all the characters are wooden dolls, which allows for some fun visuals and gags, and gives them a unique feel I really liked. The characteristics of the wood became characteristics of the characters. Even the dead characters had fun carvings on them, and there are plenty of opportunities for epic shots. Miguel enters the City of the Remembered.

Coco didn't do anything unusual in the style of the characters or world. However, their execution was exceptional, even exemplary.

Most of this is due to the talent, technology, and budget they had. But it makes a difference. The City of the Remembered looks much grander and livelier and more colorful, and the skeletal character designs are well conceived and allow for fun gags.

I would say Coco has the edge, but The Book of Life puts up a good fight for visuals, considering its limitations. Culture Both of these films handle Mexican culture very differently. However, when it goes to the cultural well, it relies tropes and stereotypes, such as matadors and luchadors.

Rather, it explains everything the audiences needs to know in a way that isn't condescending. They present cultural ideas and traditions naturally and include some of their own ideas as well.

It's a great way to underscore the importance of these traditions, including their Spanish names, without annoying audience members already familiar with them. During the production of Moana, Disney enlisted the help of Pacific Islanders. The creative team learned from them, talked with them, observed them, and integrated their findings into the film.

For Coco, Disney Pixar took it one step further.

They brought in a team of cultural experts, including critics of theirs, in order to get it right. There are so many tiny things that speak volumes about the efforts they made. Little things such as Miguel's grandmother throwing her shoe. Meanwhile, Coco found appropriate actors, which all sounded appropriate and could say the Spanish words properly.

The Book of Life completely fails for me in regards to casting. While many of the cast are Hispanic and have accents, most of the main characters are not.

Similarities Ok, now for some weird conspiracy level stuff. There are a lot of coincidences and similarities between these two films. Both of them have a strong focus on music, including protagonists who secretly yearn to be musicians. But not just any musician, a guitarist.

Both have families that forbid and discourage their desire, which, of course, propels both films' plots.

More stuff

What's more, each movie has a character who's crushed beneath a bell and killed. Both films end with the protagonist in an arena of sorts. Music is the key plot device in both films, and a single song fixes their problems. Each film features characters whose driving motivation is not being forgotten. Not much of a departure there. Both protagonists reject their family business. Both families have a pair of deceased twins who are side characters.

The dead mother characters in both films look similar and have similar gray streaks in their hair. Maria rallies the town.

With all these similarities, it begs to question: did Pixar plagiarize The Book of Life? Well, after looking at the two films, I can say definitely not.

In fact, they are very, very different movies. The Book of Life is far more over-the-top with the themes, the magic, the characters, the styles. Which isn't a bad thing. In fact, it lends itself well to animation. What's more, it's primarily a love story, cut and dry. On the other hand, Coco takes a more realistic approach, making the characters and situations more believable. Unlike it's predecessor, it's a movie about family. Conclusion These are both good films.

The Book of Life is fun, fantastical, stylized, and enjoyable.

However, it is a flawed film. Themes are overdone. The ending is mostly predictable. Cultural aspects are minimal, and often stereotyped. The timing is confusing, and the pacing rushed at times.

Nonetheless, it was a fun movie. But comparing it to Coco is unfair. Not only did Pixar have a huge budget, but the feel and concept are actually very different. There is no hero, no epic battle with a giant monster or two , no gambling magicians, and no magical medals. In their place, we get a touching look at family, music, and acceptance.

These characters struggle in real and complex ways. From a father who left his family, to a son who wants to be a musician, to a mother torn between love and long-lingering resentment.

Ultimately, Coco is just superior. The story is more solid. Music flows seamlessly, fits the film's mood, and is very catchy. The themes are universal and not overdone. Mexican culture is prevalent throughout the film and isn't presented negatively. Visually, it's beyond breathtaking.

The characters are fun and flawed and conflicted.

The Book of Life Soundtrack Lyrics

But it is up there as one of their top 5 films. If they borrowed from The Book of Life, they did an excellent job of making it their own and improving on those ideas. Miguel gives Mama Coco a kiss. Both are highly rated, and I like both. I encourage you to see them both. And I encourage you to resist the urge to compare them. However, Manolo was bitten twice and died.

Inside, he meets the Candle Maker, the overseer of mortal lives and the Book of Life's keeper. The Candle Maker sees that Manolo's story in the Book of Life is blank and can be rewritten by himself, so he takes them to the Land of the Forgotten. They find La Muerte at Xibalba's castle and expose his cheating. Furious, La Muerte lectures Xibalba before offering a new wager at Manolo's request: Manolo's life will be returned if he completes a challenge of Xibalba's choosing, but if he fails, he will be forgotten and Xibalba will keep both realms.

Xibalba sets Manolo against a giant bull skeleton made from the skeletons of every bull slain by the Sanchez family, believing that to be his greatest fear.

Their wedding is interrupted by Chakal, who leads his army to San Angel to find the Medal, which was previously his. Chakal kills Carlos, who arrives in the Land of the Remembered in time to see Manolo's fight.

Manolo, realizing his fear is actually of being himself, refuses to fight and instead sings an apology to the bull, appeasing it and touching everyone present.

Impressed, the deities resurrect Manolo and send him and his family to San Angel to protect it. In the present, Mary Beth finishes the story, and the amazed children leave the museum.

Mary Beth and a security guard reveal themselves to be La Muerte and Xibalba in disguise. The Candle Maker appears and encourages the audience to write their own story.
