On the Day of the Dead, mischievous spirits Xibalba (Ron Perlman) and La Muerte (Kate del Castillo) enter the Land of the Living to place a wager on the outcome. But when it looks as though Xibalba is about to lose, he sends a snake to intervene. Manolo suddenly finds himself whisked to the Land of the Remembered and so begins an extraordinary adventure spanning three fantastical worlds, as Manolo faces up to his darkest fears.
Produced by Oscar-nominated Pan s Labyrinth director Guillermo del Toro, this is a fabulous family romantic comedy from Mexican animator Jorge Gutierrez. Its stunning visuals draw on influences ranging from spaghetti westerns to Mexico s colourful Day of the Dead
