COCO is a US children's animation in which a boy searches for his musical hero in the Land of the Dead.

Threat

Characters are chased, panic and occasionally seen despairing. A character is frightened when he meets skeletons in a graveyard. These sequences are brief, and there is quick reassurance.

Violence

A character is poisoned by a villain. Another is crushed by a heavy object, without detail. There are sequences of fantasy fights, but these are comic in nature.

The death of loved ones is a theme of the film. Bad language is very mild.
