The Book of Life is out now on DVD, Blu-ray and digital download. The Day of the Dead-themed animated feature is written and directed by Jorge Gutierrez and produced by Guillermo del Toro, with a voice cast that includes Diego Luna (Elysium, Milk), Zoe Saldana (Star Trek), Channing Tatum (21 Jump Street, Magic Mike), Ron Perlman (Drive, Sons of Anarchy), Danny Trejo (Once Upon a Time in Mexico), Christina Applegate (Anchorman, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues), Troy Evans (Ace Ventura, Epic) and Ice Cube (Boyz n the Hood).
Torn between the expectations of his family and the desires of his heart, the film follows a young man named Manolo, who sets off on an epic quest that spans three spectacular worlds, in order to reunite with his one true love and defend his village.
The film’s fantastical journey on Blu-ray brings the party into your home with a raft of special features – including an all-new motion comic and a singalong with Latin-inspired versions of pop songs. To give you a taste, here’s a behind-the-scenes clip.
