The animated family movie center around Latino culture and Dia de los Muertos, and it’s touching many Texans’ hearts. KIIITV in Corpus Christi spoke with young viewers as they left the theater after seeing the film. One girl stated, “I’m a first generation American, my parents came here from Mexico, so them being able to relate to something and have me be able to make a connection…I thought it was really special.”
