The vibrant new animated film Vivo has dropped the trailer and is ready to delight families this summer on Netflix.
Vivo is an animated musical adventure that follows a one-of-kind kinkajou (aka a rainforest “honey bear,” voiced by Lin-Manuel Miranda) named Vivo, who must find his way from Havana to Miami in order to deliver a song on behalf of his beloved owner and mentor Andres (Buena Vista Social Club’s Juan de Marcos González).
The film features original songs written by Miranda and composed by Alex Lacamoire with a screenplay by Quiara Alegría Hudes and director Kirk DeMicco (The Croods) Brandon Jeffords as a co-director (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2).
Voice talent includes three-time Grammy-winning Latin pop legend Gloria Estefan as Marta, the love of Andres’ life, newcomer Ynairaly Simo as Gabi, Andres’ grand-niece, Zoe Saldana as Rosa, Gabi’s mother, Michael Rooker as Lutador, a villainous Everglades python, Brian Tyree Henry, and Nicole Byer as a pair of star-crossed spoonbills, Leslie David Baker as a Florida bus driver, and Katie Lowes, Olivia Trujillo, and Lidya Jewett as a trio of well-meaning but overzealous scout troopers.
