From Sony Pictures Animation comes Netflix VIVO, an animated musical adventure featuring all-new songs from Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Streaming on Netflix August 6th, the family friendly movie follows Vivo (voiced by Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda), a kinkajou who roams around Havana with his owner Andrés (voiced by Buena Vista Social Club’s Juan de Marcos González) singing tunes and playing music for the crowds. While they do not speak the same language, their bond is unbreakable due to their shared love of music. Adventure ensues when Vivo must deliver a hand-written letter to the long-lost love of Andrés, traveling from Havana to Miami and meeting a friend along the way.
Also featuring the voices of Zoe Saldaña (Guardians of the Galaxy) as Gabi’s mother, Rosa; Michael Rooker as a villainous Everglades python, Lutador; Brian Tyree Henry and Nicole Byer as a pair of star-crossed spoonbills; and Katie Lowes, Olivia Trujillo, and Lidya Jewett as a trio of well-meaning but overzealous scout troops, the animnated film is an exhilarating story about gathering your courage, finding family in unlikely friends, and the belief that music can open you to new worlds.
