Trivia Coco

Directed by Lee Unkrich, and produced by Darla K. Anderson, the same director and producer of Best Picture Oscar nominee 'Toy Story 3' (2010), with 'Coco' (2017) being Lee's second directorial effort, and Darla's fifth producal effort. Both of these films had a film directed by John Lasseter come next. In Brazil, the title name was changed to "Viva", for the original title "Coco" could be easily mistaken by the Portuguese word "cocô", which means "shit". Formerly referred to as 'Dia de los Muertos'.
