NEW YORK (AP) — The Mexico-set "Coco" is Pixar's first feature film with a minority lead character, and one of the largest American productions ever to feature an almost entirely Latino cast.

The new movie, Wonder, starring Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson, follows a young boy named August Pullman who was born with facial differences (author R.J. Palacio has said his condition is based on the genetic disorder Treacher Collins). The film is shining a spotlight on the hardships people endure when they have a condition that disfigures their appearance.

PEOPLE TV sat down with five children who have such disorders—including Treachers Collins syndrome, Van der Woode syndrome, Nager Syndrome, Goldenhar Syndrome and cleft lip and palate—to discuss their lives and how they deal with adversity. The kids, who age from 9 to 13, have all learned to deal with often rude questions from strangers about their condition. Often, they have to cope with bullying, but they have remained resilient through it all.

“Don’t let anyone make fun of you, they’re not going to be important in your life,” 11-year-old Ana Perez, who was born with a cleft lip and palate, says about facing bullying. “Know you can overcome it.”

The children hope Wonder, based on the popular YA novel by R. J. Palacio, will help to show audiences nationwide that they deserved to be treated with kindness, and, as 13-year-old Flossy Fogarty tells PEOPLE TV, how they look on the outside doesn’t reflect who they are on the inside.

The Louisville Zoo may have a male chauvinist gorilla in its midst.

PEOPLE reported on Jelani the gorilla over the summer, when he charmed and bonded with a (human) female zoo-goer while the two looked at videos together. Now, he’s back at it, this time hanging with a male zoo guest who attempted to befriend the big guy by showing him pictures of lady gorillas. Real smooth, mister.

As you can see from the Today show video above, Jelani appears to have the same innate response to the photos as a human looking at a dating app.

“Eh no, next one please,” reads the text superimposed onto the video captured by Twitter user Sierra Anderson.

Repeatedly signaling for “next,” much like the frequent swiping of the typical Tinder user, Jelani proved he is one picky ape.

Good luck finding a date with that attitude, fella!

Nearly 50 years after Charles Manson’s followers brutally murdered nine people, including pregnant actress Sharon Tate, her husband Roman Polanski still hasn’t made a visit his late wife and child’s graves.

After Manson’s death Sunday at the age of 83, Polanski’s lawyer Harland Braun tells PEOPLE the director still longs to visit his wife and child’s burial plots in Los Angeles. The Oscar winner has not returned to the United States since fleeing the country in 1978 after he pleaded guilty to raping a 13-year-old.

“It is a very painful thing because Sharon and his son are buried here in Los Angeles at Holy Cross Cemetery and because of this case, he has never been able to visit their graves,” says the attorney.

A career criminal who spent over half his life in prison, Manson became the leader of a group of young followers he convinced to murder for him and who became known as the Manson “family.”

The savage slayings — committed at Manson’s behest and for which he was found legally responsible but were not, technically, committed by him directly — shocked and terrified the nation.

Manson was eventually sentenced to death in 1971 for conspiracy to commit seven murders, but the sentence was reduced to life in prison one year later when California abolished the death penalty.

After the killings, Braun, who was a deputy district attorney in L.A. before becoming a criminal defense lawyer, was tasked with prosecuting some of the Manson family after a few of his followers, who had not been charged for the murders, went on a robbing spree in an effort to earn money to free Manson from prison.

“No matter what you would ask, he would say, ‘Thermometer,'” Braun said of cross-examining Manson. “It was bizarre because who would ever put Charles Manson on as a character witness? The whole thing was pretty bizarre.”

While the murder spree captivated the country and made Manson’s name synonymous with evil, Braun says he tries to keep the crimes in perspective. “He is evil but there is a lot of evil in the world,” he says. “You see people being slaughtered by ISIS, children dying in the Mediterranean and he is just part of human nature. There are a lot of evil people around.”

He adds, “The sad thing was most of the people in the Manson family had lost their minds in this cultish kind of behavior. It is sad there are evil people out there like that.”

Meanwhile, Polanski recently spoke out about his 1970s rape accusation in a rare interview, saying that he feels he’s completed his sentence.

“As far as what I did: It’s over. I pleaded guilty,” Polanski told The Hollywood Reporter. “I went to jail. I came back to the United States to do it, people forget about that, or don’t even know. I then was locked up here after this festival. So in the sum, I did about four or five times than what was promised to me.”

In 2009, Polanski was detained by Zurich police after the United States attempted to have him extradited to face charges relating to the decades-old rape case.

After fleeing the United States in 1978, he was detained in Switzerland, jailed and placed on house arrest for several months, until the Swiss government officially declined to deport him. Since then, Polanski has remained a fugitive. The case is still ongoing, despite his victim’s requests to have it dismissed.

Just a day after Polanski declared he had paid his debt for the rape charge, The New York Times reported that a German actress filed a report with the Swiss police accusing Polanski of raping her at a house in Gstaad when she was 15 in Feb. 1972. According to the outlet, the public prosecutor’s office is still deciding if she can pursue a criminal complaint. A lawyer for Polanski reportedly declined to comment at the time.
