Sony Pictures Animation’s first-ever musical adventure featuring all-new original songs from Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Hamilton”), will take audiences on an epic adventure to gorgeous and vibrant locations never before seen in animation.
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’s computer-animated visuals, vividly rendering such locales as Cuba, Key West and the Everglades, are consistently arresting. But it’s the joyous musical numbers and sentimental but never treacly tale at its center that make Vivo such a winning effort.” ~Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter
