The Deleted Opening Scene of “Coco” has been Released

deleted opening scene of Coco

Disney Pixar’s “Coco” is full of catchy music that the whole family will love.  It even has a song, “Remember Me,” up for Best Original Song at the Oscars in March. But did you know at one point “Coco” was envisioned to be a wall-to-wall musical?!  And now we have a look at the deleted opening scene of “Coco”.

In this upbeat number full of dancing skeletons and fireworks we see Dia de los Muertos as a period of celebration and not sadness.  It’s seen as a time for remembering departed family members and not mourning their passing.

Even the chorus of the deleted song tells us it’s not a time to mourn when it says “It’s not a time for being mournful, it’s not a time to bow your heads.  Because the fun has just begun, after you die a lot is done, the party’s anything but dead.”

Check out the deleted opening here:

“Coco” hits digital HD platforms February 13th  and Blu-ray/DVD February 27th.
