'Coco' Star Anthony Gonzalez Reveals How He Found Out He Won The Role of Miguel

Anthony Gonzalez is all suited up for the premiere of his brand new film, Coco, held at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood on Wednesday night (November 8).

The 12-year-old actor voices Miguel in the movie and opened up to Time magazine about how he found out he got the part.

“I auditioned, and it was a long process–about a year,” he remembers about the first initial tests. “Eventually, I went to the Pixar headquarters in Emeryville, Calif., to do scratch [or preliminary test] voices.”

Anthony adds, “Then last Christmas, they said they had a present for me and brought me this box. I opened it and there was this beautiful piece of artwork that just said You got the part. I was so shocked, I just fell to the floor. I couldn’t believe it.”

Georgie Flores, Olivia Rodrigo, Raini Rodriguez, Rico Rodriguez, Anneliese van der Pol, Issac Ryan Brown, and Aubrey Anderson-Emmons are also pictured below.

Coco hits theaters on Wednesday, November 22nd.
