Trailer: The Book Of Life

From producer/all-around genius Guilliermo del Toro and Jorge R. Gutierrez, the mad visionary behind Nickelodeon’s much-underrated series “El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera”.  The voice cast of this sumptuously animated romp includes Channing Tatum, Zoë Saldana (again!!), Diego Luna, Cheech Marin and Danny Trejo (to name a few).

The manic art-style displayed in the El Tigre cartoon – obviously influenced by Gutierrez’s Mexican heritage – is evident in this CGI film, particularly in the depiction of the Land Of The Dead Remembered  as well as the design of the female lead, Maria, who at one point resembles Sartana from “El Tigre”

Does my hat sombrero look too big for this head….

Sartana de los Muertos (El Tigre)…obviously not to be confused with Shaun de los Muertos (that’s Shaun Of The Dead, ya gringo!!!)
