3rd Viewing of COCO (Thanks MoviePass!) and I am still in love with this film because of three things (there are definitely more though):

The groundbreaking animation does not cross over into “Polar Bear Express” uncanny valley despite having some of the best animated facial expressions on film
The story is simple universal themes that utilize “Save the Cat” structure with every character having clear well-written motivation
It takes the audience to a place of Miyazaki like wonder where every frame on the screen demands repeat viewings
