The Book of Life is easily one of my favorite animated films of 2014 and all time. After seeing it last year in theater with my daughter I knew it had to be a part of our collection. This breathtaking animated comedy has a unique dazzling visual style unlike anything you’ve seen before. It’s colorful, vibrant, eye-catching, entertaining, and the music is incredible. The soundtrack hasn’t left my car since we purchased it shortly after the move premiered. I love it just as much as my kiddo does!
Torn between the expectations of his family and the desires of his heart, a young man named Manolo sets off on an epic quest that spans three spectacular worlds in order to reunite with his one true love and defend his village. Not your ordinary fairy tale, The Book of Life is a wondrous fantasy-adventure filled with magic, music and fun. Its story is inspired by the beauty of Mexico and the Day of The Dead which falls shortly after Halloween.
You may recognize the beautiful sugar skulls and bright colored decorations featured at many stores in preparation for the holiday. You can learn more about this fun celebration through the graphic above. Add elements of The Book Of Life into your Halloween traditions by using these sugar skull templates to transform your pumpkins.
A Mexican sugar skull mask can also be a unique addition to your Halloween costume. Print the masks, cut along the edges, and attach string to the corners. For even more glitz, add glitter or gems.
Just as the character Manolo ventures to the Land of the Remembered where he embraces the rich culture of his family history, you can explore your roots as well. Create a family tree and learn more about where you came from. You may find a few surprises along the way!
The Book of Life is a fun family-friendly film that can be enjoyed by all. It’s actually a perfect way to get into the spirit of spooky before Halloween arrives.
