Sony Pictures Animation’s first-ever animated musical adventure, featuring original songs by Lin-Manuel Miranda, is ready to take the home video stage after its exclusive Netflix run. Fans can bring home Vivo on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital this Tuesday, August 9 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, with an all-new Sing Along Edition.
Synopsis: From the studio that brought you Oscar winner Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018, Best Animated Feature Film) and the critically acclaimed The Mitchells vs. The Machines comes Vivo, an animated musical adventure featuring all-new songs from Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Vivo, a one-of-a kind kinkajou, spends his days playing music with his beloved owner Andrés. But when tragedy strikes, it’s up to Vivo to deliver a message that Andrés never could: A love letter to his old partner, the famous Marta Sandoval, in the form of a song. Yet in order to get to Marta, who lives a world apart, Vivo will need the help of Gabi — an energetic tween who bounces to the beat of her own offbeat drum — to fulfill his owner’s wishes.
The film features the voices of Lin-Manuel Miranda as Vivo, Ynairaly Simo as Gabi, Zoe Saldana as Rosa, Juan de Marcos González as Andrés, Gloria Estefan, Brian Tyree Henry, Michael Rooker and Nicole Byer.
Vivo is directed by Kirk DeMicco (The Croods), co-directed by Brandon Jeffords (upcoming Bye Bye Bunny: A Looney Tunes Musical) and produced by Lisa Stewart, Michelle L.M. Wong and Rich Moore.
