After the box office success of The Book of Life, ReelFX Animation Studio has announced that The Book of Life 2 is now in the works! Director Jorge R. Gutierrez will also be returning to the film.
The Book of Life – produced by Guillermo del Toro – showed the story of childhood friends Joaquin (Channing Tatum) and Manolo (Diego Luna) competing for the love of their other childhood friend, Maria (Zoe Saldana). Unbeknownst to them, however, deities Xibalba and La Muerte have made a wager on the outcome of the life triangle and the stakes are high.
While The Book of Life 2 does not have an official synopsis yet, according to ReelFX Animation Studio, it will continue with the journey these characters took in the first film and will explore what happened with the Gods, a question that many fans have tried to answer.
The Book of Life 2 is slated to open November 2 (Dia de Los Muertos), 2019. Check out the first poster below!
