Book Of Life BR 2DWritten and directed by Jorge Gutierrez (El Tigre: The Adventure of Manny Rivera), The Book of Life is a vibrant, colourful, unique, and unexpectedly wondrous film themed on the Day of the Dead, and in order to celebrate it Blu-ray and DVD release (on Monday February 16th) we’ve got an exclusive featurette available to view below; featuring cast and crew discussing the Day of the Dead, and unique world of the film.

Produced by Guillermo del Toro (Pacific Rim), and with a voice cast boasting the talents of Channing Tatum (Jupiter Ascending), Diego Luna (Elysium), Zoe Saldana (Out of the Furnace), Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy), Danny Trejo (Machete), Christina Applegate (Hall Pass), Troy Evans (Ace Ventura) and Ice Cube (22 Jump Street), The Book of Life tells the exciting tale of a young man who sets off on a epic quest, spanning three unique worlds, in order to reunite with his lost love, and defend his village.

Filled with magic, adventure, music and fun, and brought to life with a totally original and utterly captivating style of animation, The Book Of Life is an equal hit with children and parents alike, and should prove even more so on Monday, when the Blu-ray and DVD are released with a host of special features; including an audio commentary, featurettes examining the world, the music, the animation, and a special gallery; not to mention the in-film latin-inspired versions of songs my Mumford & Sons, Radiohead, Elvis Presley, Rod Stewart and more.

The Book of Life is out now on Digital HD and on 16 February on Blu-ray and DVD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
