- The release of the American Cartoon Film Coco has caused an upsurge and has received excellent box office income and reputation in the world including China. The film tells of the bizarre experience of the Mexican boy Miguel on the Day of the Dead. Its great success has benefited from the accurate grasp of narrative motifs. Its main narrative motifs include dream and kinship motif, death motif, mythical animal motif, and trauma motif. The thesis takes the motif as the starting point to analyze how the film uses these narratives in animation films to realize entertainment function and education function.
