Before choosing which path to follow, he embarks on an incredible adventure that spans three fantastical worlds, where he must face his greatest fears.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_2'); })The film also features the voices of Zoe Saldana, Channing Tatum, and Ron Perlman.In June of 2017, Jorge R.

Adorkable: Manolo and Joaquin both display elements of this. Both whenever their love for Maria is involved. Joaquin gets more when he talks about his awesome moustache. Whenever he's around his wife, Xibalba acts quite dorky, melting in her hands, almost literally.

Does This Remind You of Anything?: Goth Kid responds to the image of La Muerte with "she's so pretty!" and has the identical reaction when he sees the image of Xibalba. Doubles as Getting Crap Past the Radar. Everytime Xibalba and La Muerte kiss, notice how his black wings seem to rise as well. Worth mentioning that La Muerte's candles shot off fireworks during the Big Damn Kiss.

True Love's Kiss
 The Book of Life / int_1777836c
comment
True Love's Kiss: Zig-zagged. Maria "dies" after being bitten by Xibalba's snake staff. She wakes after Joaquin kisses her, while wearing the Medal of Everlasting Life, which gleams magically when he does so. It turns out, though, that one bite from the snake staff is only enough to induce a trancelike coma. It takes two bites to kill...but Xibalba is a notorious cheater, so it is never clear whether she really died or the medal had anything to do with her waking.

All There in the Manual: We learn Manolo's grandmother's name, Anita, from one of Jorge Gutierrez's tweets. General Posada's full name is Jeronimo Guadalupe Posada. Chato’s name isn't stated at all in the actual movie, rather, it's by the credits and novelization. The Detention Kids’ names and ethnicities. The fact that Xibalba and La Muerte are married is stated on the website and in other supplemental materials, but nowhere in the film itself. The security guard that Xibalba disguises as is, his name is Guicho.

Never Trust a Trailer
 The Book of Life / int_19ebe383
comment
Never Trust a Trailer: In the trailer, Maria sees a snake coming near her and Manolo, shouts his name, he gets bitten and dies. In the movie, Maria sees the snake, shouts Manolo's name, protects him by going in front of the snake which bites her once, and she dies. Subverted later, as Manolo then got voluntarily bitten twice by the snake while Maria just needed a kiss to come back to life, because she was only bitten once. In general, the advertising for the film focused heavily on the Land of the Remembered and made it seem as though the film was largely about Manolo's journey through the afterlife. Most of the movie actually takes place in the Land of the Living, and the story doesn't move into the afterlife until about halfway through.

comment
Single Woman Seeks Good Man: Maria wants to be listened to and loved for more than just her looks, as she demonstrates when she gets annoyed with Joaquin for not understanding this. It's only when Joaquin shows his true self that she agrees to seriously think about his proposal. Maria falls in love with and marries Manolo, the humble, sweet musician who promises to never stop loving her. In fact, the first indications she gets her love epiphany is when he publicly refuses to kill the bull. Implied with La Muerte. In the opening, she sadly tells Xibalba he's not the man she fell in love with years ago. She only gets back with Xibalba when he admits his mistake and apologizes.

It was Xibalba who fell for La Muerte first, the Candlemaker had a thing for her once, and her old flame El Chamuco (who is now married to her sister, La Noche), still has feelings for her. And during Xibalba's banishment, many gods attempted to court her.

Shipper on Deck: Chuy appears to support Manolo/Maria. Manolo's father, Carlos, advises Manolo to fight for Maria if he really loves her. Manolo's grandmother, Anita, gives Manolo key advice on how to woo Maria. The thing she was knitting throughout the entirety of the film were socks for Manolo and Maria's future children. Maria's father, General Posada, prefers that Maria marry Joaquin. His preference is because of Joaquin's reputation as a fighter, thus ensuring the town is safe, and doesn't really take into account Maria's feelings. Although he accepts her marrying Manolo at the end. By the time Manolo dies in the film, all of the Detention kids are rooting for him and Maria to marry. La Muerte wagers Manolo and Maria will marry. Xibalba wagers Joaquin and Maria will marry. Although it should be noted it's less because he thinks they would be good for each other, and more because he made a bet on it.

Sweet and Sour Grapes: The ending of the fight with Chackal: as he's about to blow up himself and the whole town, Joaquin and Manolo see that they can trap him under a giant bell, saving the town, but they'd be trapped there and die as well. They both attempt a Heroic Sacrifice to let the other live, Joaquin by giving the Medal of Everlasting Life to Manolo, and Manolo kicking out Joaquin at the last second, trapping only himself and Chackal. As a result, they both get to show they were to die to save the other and live. Joaquin loses an eye, though.

Jerk with a Heart of Gold

comment
Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Joaquin's conceited and his fame has gone to his head, but he's still a good guy under it all. Best shown during the wedding when, despite getting what he wants, he's less than happy because Maria is basically being forced. Before Chakal attacks it looks like he is about to call the wedding off. Carlos has a habit of moulding Manolo into the man he wants, but is ultimately a loving father towards him and apologizes to Manolo for trying to change him. General Posada is a bit of a jerk, being very strict with Maria and trying to make her decisions on who she'll marry for her, but he was sincerely saddened when everyone thought Maria died and near the end of the film he accepted Manolo with open arms. Unlike regular villains, Xibalba only sought to rule his wife's world out of loneliness. He is even undoubtedly (if begrudgingly) impressed after Manolo’s heroism bests him and cheerfully takes part in the battle against Chakal at the conclusion, if indirectly. But, the biggest example that shows Xibalba isn't completely heartless is his love for La Muerte.

Music Soothes the Savage Beast: Xibalba lets Manolo challenge him to a wager at which he is allowed to pick the task. The dirty cheater chooses bullfighting — which he knows Manolo hates. As if that weren't bad enough, the task is that Manolo must defeat every single bull every Sanchez before him has ever faced — all at once. And when Manolo succeeds at that, Xibalba combines them into one mega-bull and still the hero does not flinch, instead playing an apology song.

Lightning Reveal: Manolo's skeleton form is first revealed this way, just before he asks Xibalba to kill him. And just before that, when Manolo believes that Maria is dead, an all too familiar looking old man appears before him. The lightning flashes, casting the old man's shadow over Manolo... Giving the audience this glorious shot that confirms our fears.

Heroic Sacrifice
 The Book of Life / int_6439de78
comment
Heroic Sacrifice: Carlos Sanchez sacrifices himself to buy some time so the children can run to warn General Posada that Chakal is coming for San Angel. After being resurrected, Manolo traps himself and Chakal under a church bell with a lit pack of dynamite to save San Angel from the subsequent explosion. Just before this, Joaquin secretly gives Manolo the Medal of Everlasting Life so he can survive the battle and marry Maria. Without protection, he loses an eye in the explosion. He expected to perform a real heroic sacrifice, too - he clearly didn't expect Manolo to shove him out of the danger zone.

Our Ghosts Are Different: At the beginning as young Manolo speaks with his father about missing his mother, Carlos explains that while family is remembered with love, we can always feel their presence. Ghostly versions of family members begin appearing all over town near their shrines, showing love to the living. When Manolo returns to life to fight Chakal, Xibalba, The Candlemaker and La Muerte decide to exercise their leeway. The Sanchez ghosts all appear, and then are briefly restored to life to help Manolo fight.

Missing Mom: Played with in regards to Manolo's mother Carmen. She dies before the events of the film, and it is never explained why, but she still becomes a supporting character due to the nature of the setting. Manolo meets her in the Land of the Remembered, and she accompanies him on his journey. Joaquin's mother is never mentioned or seen in the film. However, it has been confirmed that she left San Angel when Captain Mondragon was killed. Maria's mother divorced her father and moved to Spain.

Wimp Fight: Although both Manolo and Joaquin are established to be fairly skilled fighters, their argument over who will marry Maria quickly devolves into ineffectually flailing at each other. While Played for Laughs, it also showed that while the two considered each other rivals for Maria's affection they won't seriously come to blows.

My Greatest Failure: Played with. Manolo's father tells his son when he is very small that he will grow up to be the greatest of the Sanchezes. But when Manolo refuses to kill the bull, he reacts very badly. But when Manolo lives up to his heroic destiny, his father says that Manolo has indeed become the greatest of the Sanchezes.

Calacas: All those who have died and have people among the living who remember them live out their afterlives in an endless fiesta in the Land of the Remembered. They are usually white skeletons with colorful designs decorating them, their eyes glowing orange dots in their eye sockets. Should the memory of them fade away completely, they are then sent to the Land of the Forgotten, where they wander aimlessly - their bones blackened with glowing green eyes and markings - before fading away into dust.

Cheaters Never Prosper: Xibalba has a chronic problem with cheating during bets with La Muerte. As she points out, it's the reason they're no longer together. Joaquin with the Medal of Everlasting Life ends up getting what he wants: glory, constant victory, and eventually Maria's hand in marriage. Just as he realizes that their wedding will be a sham since she's doing it out of duty, Chakal shows up, manages to steal the Medal after Joaquin has to get it, and kicks Joaquin's butt.

Implied with Luis Sanchez, but it's Played for Laughs. An early conversation between Manolo and Carlos reveals that Luis began teaching Carlos how to bullfight when he was nine... and apparently did so by putting nine year old Carlos in the ring with an actual bull, which ended with Carlos in a coma. A coma that lasted three years, according to Word of God.

Kissing Discretion Shot: La Muerte and Xibalba get in a few smooches, but always obscured by La Muerte's enormous hat. It serves dual purpose- Xibalba is a lot less humanoid than La Muerte, so actually showing the characters sucking face might look rather strange, and the combination of Nice Hat plus Xibalba's spread wings forms an image of the Sacred Heart.

Art Shift: The prologue and all flashbacks are animated traditionally in a style resembling El Tigre. The designs in the Framing Device and the story proper are also distinctly different, with the characters in the latter resembling puppets or dolls with jointed limbs and wooden textures. This is justified, since Mary Beth is using a set of miniature wooden dolls on a table to tell Manolo's story to the Detention Kids.

It was Xibalba who fell for La Muerte first, the Candlemaker had a thing for her once, and her old flame El Chamuco (who is now married to her sister, La Noche), still has feelings for her. And during Xibalba's banishment, many gods attempted to court her.

Stay in the Kitchen: Maria sarcastically brings this idea up when discussing a hypothetical marriage to Joaquin with him. He's too preoccupied with her looks to notice her disdain for what she's saying and unknowingly agrees with her, which briefly drives her off.

Taking the Bullet: When Xibalba's snake first attacks Manolo, Maria pushes him out of the way and gets bitten herself, resulting in her apparent death. Sacrdelita lost her eye (and possibly her life) from taking a bullet for her sister.

Foreshadowing: When La Muerte and Xibalba make the bet, Maria has gotten into trouble and her father sends her off to study abroad. Manolo gives her the pig she rescued as a parting gift. Joaquin races to catch her bonnet as the wind blows it off. Both call farewells to her as the train pulls away. When Manolo opens the gift Maria gave him, it's a guitar, engraved with a message from Maria. While playing, young Joaquin has fashioned a pretend moustache. After the Montage, he has grown a real one. When Manolo dies, his soul is shown leaving his body. No such effect was shown for Maria during her apparent death. Also, when he checks in with the attendant in the Land of the Remembered, he accidentally gives Maria's name instead of his, and the attendant doesn't see her name on the list. A few scenes later, it's revealed that she's still alive. When La Muerte and Xibalba take the forms of mortals to interact with Joaquin and Manolo during the A Minor Kidroduction part, they rather resemble Mary Beth and the security guard at the start, giving the hint as to who's really telling the story to the school children. Adding to the above, the way Mary Beth caresses the security guard's cheek and him affectionately calling her "mi amor" is similar to what La Muerte and Xibalab interact. Another subtle hint of who Mary Beth and the guard really are. La Muerte, Xibalba and the Candlemaker are the only characters in the story that are not depicted as wooden carved dolls. This is because that's what they really look like, as shown when La Muerte and Xibalba reveal themselves in the end.

Red Is Heroic: Maria’s dress is red and she's the one who rallies the townspeople to stand against Chakal. La Muerte wears a red dress and is the Big Good. The Sanchez Twins both wear predominately red clothes and are heroic characters based on La Adelita, the Mexican cultural icon of a strong and patriotic Mexican woman. One of the twins is even named Adelita.

My God, What Have I Done?: Carlos after Manolo's death and following their argument is residing by his son's grave. Likewise, Joaquin has a similar expression when he has to tell Maria that Manolo is dead, for similar reasons. It's what makes him doubt going through with the wedding, along with Maria wanting to marry him for honor and duty rather than for true love. Manolo after realizing his efforts to reunite with Maria in the Land of the Remembered were All for Nothing.

Maria wants to be listened to and loved for more than just her looks, as she demonstrates when she gets annoyed with Joaquin for not understanding this. It's only when Joaquin shows his true self that she agrees to seriously think about his proposal. Maria falls in love with and marries Manolo, the humble, sweet musician who promises to never stop loving her. In fact, the first indications she gets her love epiphany is when he publicly refuses to kill the bull.

Rule of Three: The Medal of Everlasting Life. Chakal had it. Xibalba stole it back, causing Chakal to go monomaniacal to seek it back. But Xibalba traded it to Joaquin, who used it to launch himself to fame in hopes of honoring his father. Then Joaquin lost it to one of the banditos, who in turn ended up losing it to the citizens of San Angel, before Joaquin gave it to Manolo.

Parting Words Regret: Carlos and Manolo before the latter's death have an argument about Manolo refusing to kill a bull. By the time we cut back to the real world, Carlos is mourning beside his son's grave and only mellows when he also dies and witnesses his son taming the demonic bull with music. Joaquin as well, since the last thing he said to Manolo was You Should Have Died Instead, when Maria wasn't really dead and on waking up learned what happened to Manolo. It certainly starts his Character Development in asking himself if a marriage to Maria was worth it, since she only will marry him for honor and so he will stay to protect the village.

Abusive Parents: General Posada shows little respect for his daughter and views her as a bargaining chip for most of the story. Most apparent when he coerces her into accepting Joaquin's proposal just after she learns of Manolo's death, despite Joaquin's attempt to stop him. However, he seems to understand that his daughter did love Manolo, he just wants Joaquin to be there when Chakal arrives. Implied with Luis Sanchez, but it's Played for Laughs. An early conversation between Manolo and Carlos reveals that Luis began teaching Carlos how to bullfight when he was nine... and apparently did so by putting nine year old Carlos in the ring with an actual bull, which ended with Carlos in a coma. A coma that lasted three years, according to Word of God.

Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: Xibalba and La Muerte. They are currently estranged, but still married. La Muerte is a beautiful goddess of the dead made out of sweet candy, but Xibalba is basically a skeleton with wings, armor, and a Sickly Green Glow, made out of tar and everything icky in the world.

Dem Bones: Both La Muerte and the Spirits of the Dead are based on calacas, skeleton figures which are decorated on The Day of the Dead, specifically the ones made out of candy. In particular, La Muerte’s overall design in particular is inspired by the iconic La Calavera Catrina of Mexican culture.

Nice Guy: Manolo Sanchez is naturally kind, loyal and nonviolent. Maria is affable, friendly, and willing to stand up for and with others against anyone. There's also her willingness to work with the orphanage and her love for animals. The Candlemaker is a humble and friendly god. All of the Rodriguez Brothers are friendly, helpful, and fun-loving. La Muerte's profile states that she's a kind ruler and she's been established as one of the Big Goods, along with the Candlemaker.

Nice Hat: Joao has a nice bowler hat. La Muerte boasts an absolutely enormous one, bedecked with candles, marigolds, feathers and skulls, as par due to being inspired by La Calavera Catrina. If she weren't a god, there is no way that thing would stay on her head. It also reacts to her emotions. The candles turn into flares when she is furious, and Roman Candles when she is passionately happy. Carmelo Sanchez wears an Aztec headdress which identifies him being of native Mesoamerican origin. Both of the Sanzhez Twins wear impressive looking sombreros.

Strong Family Resemblance: Maria got all her looks from her mother. Carlos◊ is essentially an older version of his son Manolo with a moustache, smaller eyes and graying hair. The Rodriguez Brothers could all be triplets if there weren't some subtle ways to tell them apart: Pablo is the shortest, Pancho has the most pronounced beard, and Pepe has a "smile" moustache.

It Runs in the Family
 The Book of Life / int_c63e5338
comment
It Runs in the Family: The Sanchez family boasts three main traits. The first is bullfighting. And, as Carmen points out, it is why there are so many Sanchezes in the Land of the Remembered, as they were all killed in the ring. The second is music. Manolo has an ancestor several generations back who wanted to be an opera singer but was pushed into bullfighting. As such, he sympathizes with Manolo, and even gets one heck of a solo in the big final battle. (Fittingly, he is voiced by Placido Domingo!) The third is a certain unflinching courage. It could be argued that Manolo got his due to La Muerta's blessing. But his mother, Carmen, on meeting Xibalba, bitchslapped him.

Shout-Out
 The Book of Life / int_c75df49a
comment
Shout-Out: Several of the songs the mariachi band sings while Manolo is trying to court Maria. Also, at crowd shot of Mexico at the beginning of the movie, you can spot Manny and Frida having fun off to the side. The town is named San Angel. Likely after Televisa San Angel, the largest media company in Mexico. Jorge Sanchez is pretty much a dead ringer for Don Quixote. In the climax, the town Priest puts on a luchador mask and delivers wrestling attacks to the bandits. The mask's design and the fact he's a Priest call to mind Fray Tormenta, the legendary wrestling Priest and Folk Hero. Maria's last name is Posada, the same as famous Mexican illustrator José Guadalupe Posada, whose work "La Calavera Catrina" inspired La Muerte's look. A Fastball Special bucket brigade up a tower? Hmm... Especially one made of dead ancestors...

What the Hell, Hero?: Played with. In the timeframe of the movie, Bullfighting was the biggest sport, and the great matadors were roughly equivalent to modern day sports heroes. Manolo refusing outright to kill the bull not only had the spectators react with dismay, the entire town turned on him, such that General Posada invited the whole town, including people he hates, to Maria's welcome back party — except Manolo.

Vitriolic Best Buds: Jorge the conquistador Sanchez member and Carmelo the native Mesoamerican Sanchez member, have a rather complicated relationship with each other. The former often calling the latter savage and the latter unintentionally bumps around the former. Not surprising considering the complicated history between the conquistadors and Mesoamericans. They're still family though.

Friend to All Living Things: Manolo Sanchez. Given his refusal to kill bulls and giving Chuy to Maria when they were younger. Maria Posada has a strong love for animals and won't stand for the killing of them. As a child she convinces Manolo and Joaquin to help her free a butcher's pigs. Later, the look of dread on her face during the main bullfight is what prompts Manolo to throw down his sword. She also has the "Disney Princess" ability to draw flocks of birds to her and have them hang around being cute and musical. La Muerte. All creatures love her.

Sealed with a Kiss: Manolo and Maria kiss as Mary Beth finishes telling their story to the children. Also, once Mary Beth and the old security guard reveal themselves as La Muerte and Xibalba, the two share a passionate kiss as the movie ends.

Never Say "Die": Funnily enough, for a film about the Day of the Dead. Manolo doesn't die and the arena bulls aren't (in most lines) killed; they 'pass away' and are 'finished' respectively. The oddest example: Joaquin's father "passed away" fighting against Chakal.

"Billy Elliot" Plot: Manolo Sanchez wants to become a musician, while his father Carlos wants him to become a bullfighter. Even though Manolo does have the skills of a bullfighter, he refuses to kill a bull, even in the Land Of The Unremembered, where he had to fight a hundred bulls that all morphed into one gigantic bull. Eventually, Carlos sees for himself that his son does much better as a singer when the song of apology that Manolo sings for the bulls that were slaughtered by the Sanchez family is so moving that it just turns the gigantic bull into a pile of flower petals.

Beware the Nice Ones: Do not assume that pissing Manolo off won't end badly for you. Maria is a great girl to befriend... but she's not one to take lightly. La Muerte is a kind and loving ruler. Do not push her Berserk Buttonnote  If you enter into a bet with her, do NOT cheat.

Skyward Scream: As Manolo holds Maria's seemingly-dead body, he gives off a terrifically anguished "HELP!" La Muerte lets loose a truly epic one when she finds out that Xibalba cheated to win their bet. Just before she screams, Candlemaker warns the Sanchezes, "You'd better cover your ears."
