The Book of Life is an Animated Winner

Guillermo Del Toro has a lot of projects set up, and he’s now in animated Tim Burton territory with The Book of Life. The verdict?

Apparently Del Toro’s produced a winner with a special Latin flavor. After all, how many animated movies have dealt with Dia de los Muertos? The Wrap has called it a “vibrant animated tale,” Good Morning America News calls it “adorably macabre, nostalgic fun,” and Forbes tells us the movie “celebrates [the] day of the dead in high style.”

A CGI animated movie like this is a really nice change of pace, and it’s nice to see the Latin traditions of the Dia de los Muertos getting a Pixar style movie for the family. Providing the voices for The Book of Life are Diego Luna, Zoe Saldana, Channing Tatum, and Ron Perlman, among others.
