Alternate Title: "Day Of The Dead."

Cartoon Production Information:

The film is an action-packed, fully CG-animated pic­ture, with a Romeo and Juliet-style love story set against a Mex­i­can "Day of the Dead" back­drop. It rep­re­sents the first time in almost 20 years — since 1993's "Cronos" — that del Toro has col­lab­orated on a fea­ture project set in Mexico.

Music is also inte­gral to the story; the film will fea­ture an inter­na­tional ros­ter of A-list record­ing artists per­form­ing new songs, as well as reimag­ined iconic songs. Reel FX's Brad Booker brought "Day of the Dead" to the stu­dio, and is the devel­op­ment exec­u­tive on the project.

The name was changed from Day of the Dead to Book Of Life to avoid conflict with a Pixar film with a similar title.

3D CG Animation.
