From the studio that brought you Oscar® winner Spider-Man™: Into the Spider-Verse 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.

Touching musical about family and love has a little peril.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Vivo is a touching animated musical about a one-of-a-kind singing kinkajou (voiced by Lin-Manuel Miranda) who has a great life in Havana with acclaimed aging bandleader Andrés (Cuban musician Juan de Marcos González). When Andrés dies unexpectedly, Vivo decides he must travel from Cuba to Miami to find his friend's former musical partner/the one who got away. Viewers who are already fans of Miranda's work will enjoy his signature hip-hop and Latin music-inspired soundtrack. The movie has a few moments of sadness and peril, including when a dog calls Vivo tasty and chases after him, and when Vivo and Andrés' grand-niece, Gabi (Ynairaly Simo), travel through the Everglades on their own and have to deal with an unexpected storm and a killer python, as well as a lovesick spoonbill who'd rather die than face a mate-less future. Friends argue, and a girl deceives her mother, but there are ultimately clear messages of courage, empathy, teamwork, and the transformational power of love.
