Mattel did not immediately respond to ABC News' request for comment.

Disney/Pixar's hit film "Coco" brought the Mexican holiday to life in the 2017 animated movie in which Latino families put out altars and other remembrances for family members who had passed on.

Disney is the parent company of ABC News.
