The first time I met animator Jorge Gutierrez, director of the dazzling new animated musical film The Book of Life, he made me laugh.
Five years later, I interviewed him again to discuss The Book of Life, the story of a love triangle that becomes the subject of a wager between the rulers of the two lands of the afterlife.
The movie’s hero, Manuelo (Diego Luna), a bullfighter who would rather be a musician, must travel through the underworld to win Maria (Zoe Saldana), the woman he loves. The Book of Life (2014): Manolo, a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of her family and following her heart, embarks on an adventure that spans three fantastic worlds where he must confront his greatest fears.

Also on the album are Grammy Award-winners La Santa Cecila, hip-hop artist Biz Markie and actor, voice actor and comedian Cheech Marin (star of the "Cheech & Chong" movies) round out the soundtrack.
Other highlights on "The Book of Life" soundtrack include Domingo's version of "Cielito Lindo," Luna's spin on Radiohead's "Creep" and Elvis' "Can't Help Falling in Love with You," and a twist on the old-school hip-hop favorite, "You Got What I Need," by Biz Markie and Cheech Marin.
It also has a "fresh take on pop and contemporary music favorites," such Mumford & Sons and Us the Duo. As mentioned, the fantastical adventure features the voices of actors Tatum, Saldana, Luna, in addition to Ron Perlman, Ice Cube and Danny Trejo, among others.

It highlights the journey of Manolo (Luna), a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart. He told me that he and his wife Sandra Equihua, co-creator of the series, had attended San Diego Comic-Con for years as volunteers because they could not afford tickets. The Land of the Forgotten, is ruled by Xibalba (Ron Perlman), who is not above lying and cheating to get what he wants. The look of the film is inspired by the Mexican Day of the Dead celebrations, especially the traditional wooden toys with skeletal imagery, and the animated characters are wonderfully tactile and appealing.

Before choosing which path to follow, he embarks on an incredible adventure that spans three fantastical worlds where he must face his greatest fears.
The film is rich with highly artistic and authentic graphics and characters that honor the colorful nature and tradition of Día de los Muertos.

Experience covering human interest stories and social and large scale events with focus on Latino entertainment. Maria began her career in journalism in her native Dominican Republic where she worked for Ritmo Social, one of the country's most prestigious magazines, and as on-air co-host of a radio variety show. 20th Century FoxLast year, I learned that Disney wanted to trademark the Dia de los Muertos, a very Mexican tradition that focuses on remembering the dead, celebrating their lives and gathering family and friends to do so in a lively manner, full of color and with specific rituals. They backed off after the article I wrote exposing it (although at the time I just thought of it as a cool way for kids all over the world to learn about this), mostly because it prompted a petition online that got thousands of signatures and a lot of angry Disney fans.Of course, I later understood that you couldn’t trademark a tradition like that. Commercializing on the folklore of a culture to benefit a major company and not precisely the country where that tradition hails from, just wasn’t right.
Although it was a victory for the Dia de los Muertos advocates, it was a great loss for Disney. Not too long after the whole situation blew up, calmed down and eventually was forgotten, Fox announced that they’re releasing an animated film based on the Dia de los Muertos.Silently, while Disney was in the spotlight, Fox explored the options and found a fantastic script from Jorge R.
Originally titled “El Matador,” it went on to become “Dia de los Muertos” to finally end as “The Book of Life.” The results are fantastic. Of course, it’s not like Fox owns the whole “Dia de los Muertos,” as Disney intended to do, and the movie is a nice reminder of the tradition with great Latino actors as well as their fine American counterparts, crafted to appeal to both younger and older audiences.Directed by Gutierrez himself and produced by famed Mexican director Guillermo del Toro, The Book of Life focuses on the journey of Manolo Sanchez (Diego Luna), a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart. In love with the beautiful Maria (Zoe Saldana), yet having to battle with the affections of the charming Joaquin (Channing Tatum) to win her heart, the spirits La Muerte (Kate del Castillo) and Xibalba (Ron Perlman) bet on who will win Maria.
