>Coco is a movie that features the ghosts of the various dead ancestors. It should have been banned entirely since it isn’t exactly a plot point you can alter. It’s the entire movie... However, when they sat the movie itself they were moved to tears and the “story’s warmth and its happy ending, where the young protagonist saves the day by ensuring that his ancestors are properly remembered and honored.” They were so moved that not only did they allow the movie through but they didn’t alter anything.

>Pixar has a lot of things to be proud of but making a bunch of people go against their core beliefs because you touched them so fundamentally is pretty amazing. Great art is universal.

Where were you when a cartoon about Mexican skeleton ghosts warmed cold Chinese hearts?
