How To Get The 'Coco' Soundtrack If Your Kid Has Become Obsessed

The new Pixar film Coco is already getting rave reviews, and only just hit theaters in the United States on Wednesday. The movie follows a 12-year-old Mexican boy who wants to become a musician, who goes on a journey that leads him into "the netherworld of Día de Muertos"  — also known as the Day of the Dead, according to Variety. Since music is such a big part of the movie, parents may be wondering how to get the Coco soundtrack. Finally, you can turn off Frozen's "Let It Go" and Moana's "How Far I'll Go."

Although it's a newcomer to cinemas in the U.S., Coco is already pretty popular in Mexico, where the movie takes place. In fact, on Nov. 15, Coco surpassed 2012’s The Avengers as the country’s highest-grossing movie ever, Deadline reported. That's pretty impressive, since The Avengers was certainly a big deal at the box office in its own right. It's probably safe to say that Coco will do very well in the U.S. too, based on glowing early reviews. So it might be a good idea to get your hands on the soundtrack sooner rather than later, especially if you're making plans to bring the kids to see Coco over Thanksgiving.

Coco reportedly "ranks among Disney-Pixar's most engaging efforts," according to The Hollywood Reporter. And "engaging" is a good sign when it comes to children's movies, because sometimes it can be tough to get kids to sit still in a theater for an extended period of time.

In Coco, when the young protagonist, Miguel (voiced by Anthony Gonzalez), finds himself in the Land of the Dead, he makes friends with a skeleton, played by actor Gael García Bernal, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Bernal reportedly sang on a track called “Un Poco Loco," and since he doesn't consider himself a singer, he said it was a different and challenging experience. When it comes to singing, Bernal told The Hollywood Reporter at the Coco premiere in Hollywood:

The movie has "no shortage of lively musical numbers," according to Fortune. That probably means the soundtrack all by itself is a lot of fun, and hopefully includes a lot of selections that kids can enjoy even when they're not watching the movie.

The film is so focused on music that the score is 112 minutes long, which is technically longer than the movie’s runtime at 109 minutes, according to Rotoscopers. Rotoscopers reported that although Pixar insists Coco isn’t a musical, music is a huge part of the story, which is really no surprise if you've seen any trailers for the movie.

There are actually a lot of ways to get the Coco soundtrack right now, depending on your preference. For instance, Amazon has an MP3 version of the album available, as well as an audio CD option. The original motion picture soundtrack for Coco is also available on Apple music, if that's how you prefer to get your music.

Target also has the Coco soundtrack, to buy online or pick up at your local store. The Disney Store also has it, which isn't exactly shocking. Barnes and Noble has the Coco soundtrack as well, plus it's available at Walmart for a pretty good price.

If you are planning to see Coco this holiday season, it's a good idea to pick up a copy of the soundtrack too. That way, you'll be ready if your kids want to blast the music in the car on the way home from the theater — or if you fall in love with the soundtrack yourself and want to have your own "carpool karaoke," featuring music from Coco on the way to work one of these cold winter days.
