A hearty thank you to director Jorge Gutierrez and producer Guillermo del Toro for creating the animated feature film The Book of Life that opens in theaters on October 17 because it’s a film I can take my kids to see and that I’m quite excited about seeing as well.
The cast list is bonkers in a good way. It stars Zoe Saldana, Diego Luna, Channing Tatum, Ron Perlman, Ice Cube, Danny Trejo, and has so many other stars in it that will blow your mind … oh yeah, like Cheech Marin, Placido Domingo, Eugenio Derbez, Kate del Castillo, Ice Cube and MORE! I’m telling you it is a star-studded cast.
The story is a vibrant fantasy-adventure, which tells the legend of Manolo, a conflicted hero and dreamer who sets off on an epic quest through magical, mythical and wondrous worlds in order to rescue his one true love and defend his village. Check out the trailer!
There’s all kinds of fun things going on around the film as well. Like Cost Plus World Market has developed exclusive The Book of Life Toys inspired by the film. You can visit the Cost Plus Book of Life store online or in person to check out adorable products that include a colorful Tin Keepsake Box, Guitar, Maracas, Manolo Rubber Duck Bath Toy, Kaleidoscopes, and more.
