The media wrote about China letting Coco be released on its theaters. The one reason is because of the family and ancestor tradition that the Chinese and Latino share as a common theme. Coco promotes family value and the gist of balancing dreams and family. Based on China's censorship guide, the movie should've been banned because of ghosts.
Well, actually China could flame international incident if Coco banned from mainland. I mean, come on, this movie has the heart of many Mexicans in it. A ban would sour Latino community at least. This movie researched well by the movie maker.
