Grim Fandango meets The Corpse Bride meets maybe The Fountain or something in The Book of Life, a heavily-stylized animated film from El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera creator Jorge Gutierrez. After viewing the trailer, one thing is for sure: those of us who saw Free Birds, are now scratching our heads in confusion. Reel FX also launched the website for the film which gives a few extras including character bios, sceneries, and inspiration for the production design. Just from the website design and layout, we can see that this will be an extraordinary tale of unnatural feats. The Book of Life is the journey of Manolo, a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart.
Now that we have the trailer and a pretty good first look, have you changed your mind on watching the film?
Mayra Amaya is a Theater graduate from Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ where she also learned filmmaking. I felt the same way about the voices, but seeing as how I tend to think that about most trailers, I’m willing to wait it out and keep an open mind until I actually see it.
I love the style of the film; like someone else said, too many animated films nowadays are trying to look realistic, but I feel like this style fits what the story appears to be perfectly.
I actually just watched Free Birds last week on Netflix and didn’t think it was all that bad.

Considering the nature of The Book of Life, I can see this becoming a franchise where each film is a stand-alone story connected by the mythology and possibly a few other characters. Upcoming Podcast EpisodesHere is the upcoming movie schedule for the Animation Addicts Podcast.
The Book of Life vertelt het verhaal van matador Manolo (Diego Luna) en Joaquin (Channing Tatum), de badass van het dorp, die beide strijden om het hart van de mooie Maria (Zoe Saldana). Diego Luna, Zoe Saldana, and Channing Tatum provide voices for the Guillermo del Toro-produced feature, which tells the romantic journey of a wooden-man-turned-skeleton who "embarks on an incredible adventure that spans three fantastical worlds." As far as skewed, misshapen takes on Mexican culture go, this looks far easier to digest than Taco Bell.
This is definitely does not seem like the same studio, nor should it be compared to Free Birds as it is a completely different story. This is fairly typical for animated features, especially ones that are teamed up with Fox’s marketing. Knowing that Guillermo del Toro is involved is a reassurance that this film is offering something new to animation and movie-making overall. Pretty much the only reason I bought that movie was to help support Texas animation (even though the whole thing was just a commercial for Chuck E.
Als Manolo echter plotseling door een slang wordt gebeten en op een behoorlijke trippy rit richting de Onderwereld afdaalt, wordt het behoorlijk lastig om zijn liefdesmissie uit te voeren. From this first trailer we get more of an idea of the warmth and depth they’ve taken both with the animation and the storyline.

Rich with a fresh take on pop music favorites, The Book of Life encourages us to celebrate the past while looking forward to the future. Plus, there hasn’t been many films associated with the Day of the Dead, let alone animated films. But it still looks great, I just hope this does not stop Pixar from making their Dia Des Los Murtos film.
As someone who watched the trailer for Free Birds and just rolled her eyes, this is actually a film I’d be really interested in seeing. Daarvan kon je in mei al de geweldige eerste trailer zien op, maar op Comic-Con kwam er nog eentje uit.
Channing Tatum jajajaj and the animation’s spectacular and Reel FX will redeem itself YAY!! But the story looks like it can be pretty interesting, if they would just get rid of all of that kiddie humor (like at the end).
