Coco Directors Lee Unkrich and Adrian Molina Revealed Their Alebrije Easter Eggs

There are so many wonderful things to enjoy in Disney•Pixar’s Coco, including the amazingly colorful alebrijes, like Pepita, who live in the Land of the Dead. In the Land of the Dead, alebrijes (modeled after the traditional Mexican folk art of the same name) serve as spirit guides for the people living there. We recently spoke to Coco co-directors Adrian Molina and Lee Unkrich about the film, and during the interview they revealed that their alebrijes are actually in the movie! Watch this video to hear what they had to say about seeing reactions to the movie, to learn who Adrian Molina’s own personal Mama Coco is, and to see if you spotted Unkrich and Molina’s alebrijes during Coco.
