Pixar's Coco wins best picture, best director at Imagen Awards; film's actor hopes for sequel
Oscar-winning Pixar film Coco topped the list of winners at the 33rd annual Imagen Awards, presented by the Imagen Foundation that encourages positive portrayals of Latinos in media, according to Deadline. Coco won the Best Feature Film award as well as Best Director award for Lee Unkrich and Adrian Molina.
Anthony Gonzalez, who voiced the character of Miguel Rivera, hoped for the story to further explore the protagonist's love for music in a sequel, live-action adaptation or even a stage show, reports Variety.
"If there was a chance, I would love to. I hope there’s a sequel even if I’m not in it. I’d just love to see more about Miguel — what he’s up to, what he’s doing. I want to know about his relationship with his new baby sister."
Variety also adds that Gonzalez performed 'Remember Me' from the animated musical.
