How vintage graphics inspired Vivo - Netflix's stunning new animated musical

Neflix's latest animated movie celebrates the art of musicals (Image credit: Sony Pictures Animation)

Vivo is Sony Animation Pictures' upcoming animated musical, and the trailer has just dropped (see below). Netflix has also announced a release date of 6 August, so there's not too long to wait to watch the whole movie.

When you mix the talent behind The Croods, Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, and Hamilton into one animated movie, you’d imagine a creative spectacle will result, but Vivo is something else: it's like a love letter to animation. It's also Lin-Manuel Miranda's first animated musical, and it's pitch perfect.
