Visually, it’s the dark child of a Toy Story, Nightmare Before Christmas and Shrek mash-up, taking a lot of inspiration from the Mexican holiday festival, Dia de Muertos (Day Of The Dead). The story is a romantic comedy tale that focuses on the love triangle between would-be adventurer Manolo, the charming town hero Joaquin and their love interest Maria. They make a wager on which of the two suitors will win Maria’s heart, but when it looks like Manolo is about to gain the favour of the girl he loves, Xibalba takes matters into his own hands.
The Book Of Life has a pretty eclectic mix of a cast list that includes Zoe Saldana (Guardians Of The Galaxy) as Maria, Diego Luna (Casa de Mi Padre) as Manolo and Channing Tatum (21 Jump Street) as the town hero, Joaquin. The rest of the cast includes Christina Applegate (Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues), Ice Cube (21 Jump Street), the legendary Cheech Marin, singer and conductor Placido Domingo and Danny Trejo. The story was written by Jorge Gutierrez and Doug Langdale, with Guitierrez also taking on the director duties.


With a strong trailer, impressive animation, a very unique style and some great characters The Book Of Life looks like it could be an instant classic, especially with it’s Halloween release date.

The Book Of Life is the latest in the long line of CGI-led cinematic cartoons to try to break away from the norm and do something different and from the look of the trailer below, it might just work.
Not wanting to lose the bet he sends a snake to kill the young man, confining him to the mad cap Land Of The Remembered, and leaving Manolo with the seemingly impossible task of trying to return to the land of the living to be reunited with his love. They’re added to by Kate del Castillo as La Muerte and Ron Perlman (Pacific Rim) as her disreputable betting partner Xibalba.


In addition to Guillermo del Toro, the film has also been produced by Aaron Berger, Brad Booker and Carina Schulze. The storyline sounds interesting and the cast is very strong with more than a few surprises, so it’ll be interesting to see how it all comes together.
The release date for the DVD, Blu-ray and digital download was the 16th February 2015 in the UK and the 27th January 2015 in the US. Unfortunately, you will have missed it at the cinema now, except for the odd one or two extra runs, but with the DVD, Blu-ray and digital download already out, there’s plenty opportunities to catch the film still.
