2017 marked Disney and Pixar's desire to conquer U.S. Latino audiences with the released of the much anticipated animated film Coco directed by Lee Unkrich and co-directed by Adrian Molina. The film not only paid off becoming the 13th grossing film in the U.S. this year with $198.2 million, but it became the highest grossing film in the history of Mexico, and had a huge international success.
Pantelion also had a stellar year releasing five comedy films with strong results, including the English-language debut film by Mexican comedian Eugenio Derbez. Two documentary biopic films, on Dolores Huerta and Chavela Vargas also made it to the list of most popular Latino films in the U.S.
