i’ve seen more posts of people being excited for Home than this movie, which made me upset because this movie comes out before Home does (not that i am saying that you shouldn’t praise Home as well). and as for Big Hero 6 (a movie that also comes out after the Book of Life) and the people saying that there is a lack of representation of Asians in media, i feel you. why? because there is a bigger lack of hispanics, and i agree Disney messed up, you be upset. but be happy for Hispanics as well because we finally got an animated movie representing us and our culture. so please go see this movie when it comes out.

that is all i ask.

When I saw the trailer for this when I went to see the Lego movie it was so stunning I knew it was a movie I had to see

Also it looks like it’s by the same person who did El tigre

which was a great and fun show 

ALSO!!! So far the trailers have be CHOCK FULL of allusions and references to different parts of Mexican culture and history!!

That beautiful lady up there is La Muerte and she’s straight up based off Catrinas which are popular figures and dolls used to represent Dia De Los Muertos.

NOT ONLY THAT but the weird texture on her skin is sugar! Why sugar? Sugar skulls! They’re a common treat found being sold by vendors and made by other families on Dia De Los Muertos.

BUT WOAH DON’T STOP THERE Along with having those two things play into her design she also has cempasúchil (marigold to put it simply) flowers in her hat. Why’s that important?  Those are called flor de los muertos, flower of the dead. They’re used to honor the dead and decorate the altars made by loved ones of the deceased.

And this is just ONE design. All of that thought, care, and attention to detail went into ONE design and that’s only scratching the surface. This isn’t even touching on the adelita twins NOR the town itself.

Like really, this is turning out to be a film crafted out of pure love and respect for the culture and the medium itself and, like OP, all I ask is that you PLEASE go check out this film when it’s released.

Because while you may verbally support it, the studio and the industry itself NEEDS to see money tied in with your voice and the voices of everyone else who has been supporting this film.

And hey! Danny Trejo and Ron Perlman are in it!

So yeah, GO WATCH THE BOOK OF LIFE.

dude I don’t know anybody who isn’t excited for this film.

The plot in this summary isn’t accurate! But that’s okay, that means there’s more reason to go see it!!

LA CATRINA IS SO BEAUTIFUL LOOK AT HER WHEN SHE APPEARS THERE’S ROSE PETAAALLLSSS

XIBALBA IS SO SCARY TOO I’M ALREADY AFRAID OMFG RON PERLMAN THO

you are all fools if you don’t go see this but I am sure all of you will

Client: I threw out that black pen, it was out of ink.

Me: What black pen?

Client: The one that was lying on your tablet.

Me: You threw out my $150 Wacom pen?

Client: I tried writing with it and it didn’t work. It must’ve been out of ink.

this almost made me cry

this is simultaenously the best and worst submission i’ve ever seen from Clients from Hell.

I feel ill

I think Hiccup and Astrid are the best animated couple ever.

I love how their relationship isn’t a major plot point for the films. Astrid isn’t there as a reward for the hero, she is also his best friend (next to Toothless of course). She didn’t stop being a warrior after she became a love interest (and Hiccup wouldn’t want her to, he loves her for it).

They talk about their problems. They fight their enemies together. And they trust each other.

Something that I’m just noticing from these gifs. They actually lean their cheeks into the kisses, opposed to just letting the other do all the work.  That’s something actual couples do when they know each other well enough to know it’s coming.  I love this.
