We’re getting used to the occasional Halloween animated treat from Tim Burton… but The Book of Life is a Guillermo del Toro project. Yes, del Toro.
There’s a cast with plenty of big names in it; Ron Perlman, Channing Tatum, Zoe Saldana, Ice Cube, Danny Trejo, Christina Applegate, Diego Luna and others. Directed by Jorge Gutierrez, The Book of Life follows Manolo as he wrestles with keeping to the expectations of his family and with what his heart tells him to do. He winds up stranded in an incredible adventure that spans three worlds.
We’re told The Book of Life is an animated comedy with fresh take on pop music favourites.
