"Paint War Engagement Session"

oh my fucking god i can’t even take how cute this is

Your post made the weekend so much better. So many people saw this movie. So many kids saw this movie. If you felt like this afterwards, a ton of people probably felt the same. This is great.

I hope so! It’s fantastic. I’m so happy right now. 

Why “The Book of Life” is important…

1. The cast for this movie is probably the biggest hispanic cast I have ever seen in an animated movie probably ever. Representation people!

2. The design for this movie is not like anything I’ve ever seen. 

3. There is a Mexican Protagonist. Do you know how long it’s been since there was a Mexican protagonist? 70 YEARS! “The Three Caballeros” came out in 1944, it’s 2014.

4. It covers issues like gender roles in the hispanic/latino community and sort of challenges it. 

5. It’s against animal cruelty. 

6. It presents El Dia de Los Muertos beautifully.

Hello people go see The Book of Life. Especially if you’re Latino, it’s an important movie. It’s beautiful.
