I don’t think you guys understand how much The Book of Life means to me right now so to sum it up quickly:
- It’s a story revolving around Mexican folklore set in Mexico
- All the characters are non-stereotypical Mexicans
- The lead character is voiced by a Mexican
- The producer is Mexican
- The director is Mexican
- It’s a film about Mexicans made by Mexicans for the ENTIRE public and woOWOWOWOWOW wow !!
oh my god so apparently jorge gutierrez said his main artistic goal with the book of life was to make a film that looked as good as the concept art because he was tired of how watered down all the initial stylistic designs were in modern animation and it broke his heart to see all this beautiful art lost in the final product. please let this man be in charge of every cgi movie from now on.
watching once upon a time and hearing Emile de Ravin say, “what brought me here to the island?” made me blurt out “I DONT KNOW. YOU WERENT ON JACOBS LIST AHAHAHAHAH”
