Bratt on Coco and Donald Trump
Bratt’s latest film is a Pixar children’s movie centered on Latin culture and a boy who pursues music after being forbidden from it. Bratt also isn’t a fan of President Donald Trump and hopes the film shares the message of equality and the beauty of Latin culture.
“The movie not only celebrates who we are as a Latino people, but it serves to re-introduce us, in a different way, to the rest of the world,” said Bratt, 53, who voices the character of a deceased famous singer. “It shows our uniqueness but also demonstrates the fact we all are, more or less, the same, at the end of the day — no matter what our culture or nationality may be.”
He added: “That celebration is cause for celebration because sitting in the White House is a man who’s no friend of Latinos and one who has denigrated our culture, loosely labeled us as rapists and murderers, and that couldn’t be more far from the truth,” Bratt, told People at the Los Angeles premiere Wednesday night.
“Without focusing on that, and focusing on the matter at hand, Coco celebrates our uniqueness, celebrates the fact that we’re a community of love and family ties, artistic expression, beautiful language, and wonderful traditions.”
Coco is in theaters everywhere on November 21.
