We got tickets for the DVC sneak preview from last night. Though it was fairly predictable, it was a cute movie. I really enjoyed the AMC in Disney Springs.

The movie was cute, very beautiful, but dragged on a bit too long. I give props for trying something different. The soundtrack isn't going to set the world on fire, that's for sure. Real 3D continues to amaze me. You totally forget your are wearing the glasses and get completely immersed in the movie.

I really enjoyed the Olaf's Frozen Adventure short. Cute, funny, good Holiday Cheer. A pretty good song at the end as well.

Loved the movie - I went the weekend after Thanksgiving. It was great to see Disney artwork in this tradition. There were some beautiful scenes.

I thought the Olaf thing was meh - kind of long. Actually I commented to my friend that 2:20 was a pretty long runtime for a cartoon! LOL - saw this yesterday:

We loved the movie too, went to see it Thanksgiving morning. It was great to have a fresh story and something from a different culture portrayed so well.

I also agree that the Olaf featurette was too long. Also, I'm glad I knew it was going to be long before we went or I would have been very confused at the movie itself. I just by chance caught a news article that it would be 22 minutes before we went to see the movie. I would guess many audience complaints happened just because people didn't know what they were in for.

I also think they could have tightened the "featurette" up into a "short" quite easily and it would have been much better. There were definitely portions of it that dragged. I would have been happy with a 10-12 minute short with Olaf, 22 minutes was just too long when you're really there to see Coco.

People went to a Coco movie and got a bonus Frozen short and were confused by that and this in turn lead to anger and people leaving the theater. Really? Imagine if it were a double feature- there may have been suicides. Societal ADD is worse than I thought.

Very good movie, and thought the Frozen longish short was cute as well. Also don’t get the “outrage”, but whatever.

I was pleasantly surprised by the movie. Im not into the day of the dead, but actually learned something more about it. However, I have to disagree about the Frozen long short..... I was completely bored by it....could Elsa have clouded your perspective?

How close is Coco to The Book of Life?
