Benjamin Bratt dubs Pixar master storytellers
Benjamin Bratt revealed he thinks Pixar are "master storytellers" but thinks American cinema has a long way to go to be more diverse. The 54-year-old actor stars as singer Ernesto De La Cruz in the new Oscar-tipped animation 'Coco' and he admitted he loved that the movie will "illuminate the beauty and uniqueness of Mexican culture".
In an interview with the Metro newspaper, Bratt said: "I'm a fan of Pixar films - I have children under 12, so I'm quite familiar with their canon.
Pixar are master storytellers. And I loved that it was going to illuminate the beauty and uniqueness of Mexican culture.
It's quite timely that this film in a way reintroduces Latino culture to the rest of the world. As much as it's a piece of entertainment, I also see it as an opportunity to remind us of our shared humanity."
'Coco' follows the story of Miguel who finds himself in the colourful land of the dead and he unlocks the real story behind his family history.
