For producer Guillermo del Toro, The Book of Life -- starring Channing Tatum, Zoe Saldana and Diego Luna -- was an important movie for him to produce. It was the brainchild of a director from his homeland of Mexico, Jorge R. Gutierrez, and was a love letter to that country’s traditions, culture and the people that make up the past -- but was still quite universal in scope.

As seen in The Book of Life trailer, the film centers around the Day of the Dead, but that is merely the vehicle for telling a story that is also quite the fairy tale and timeless romance -- all features that compelled del Toro to add the film to his jam-packed schedule.
