Netflix’s animated musical comedy directed and co-written by Kirk DeMicco. Vivo (2021) follows a kinkajou, Vivo (Lin-Manuel Miranda), who must find his way from Havana to Miami in order to deliver a love letter to the famous Marta Sandoval (Gloria Estefan), written long ago, in the form of a song on behalf of his beloved owner and mentor, Andres, (Juan de Marcos González). Yet in order to get to the distant shores of Miami, Vivo will need to accept the help of Gabi (Ynairaly Simo), an energetic tween who bounces to the beat of her own offbeat drum.

We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
Andrés: [singing] Come down from the tree. You can stay with me.
Vivo: When it came to music, Andrés and I became so in sync. Not a moment out of place. Until the letter came.
Marta Sandoval: [writing a letter to Andrés] Nothing would mean more to me than for us to sing together again.
Vivo: So you guys were like a duo?
Andrés: She was also the love of my life. But I never told her how I felt. All my love, I put it into a song.
Andrés: Vivo, I must deliver this song to Marta. She needs to know that I love her.
Vivo: Marta, here I come.
Gabi: Marta needs to hear this song, and I’m going to get you there. Get in my bag.
[Vivo shudders in disgust as he sees the inside of her bag]
Gabi: The mission for love is on.
Olivia: Can I pet him?
Gabi: Go to town. His name’s Vivo. He’s a possum.
Lidya: Gabi, that’s a kinkajou. AKA, the honey bear.
Gabi: Marta, here we come!
Vivo: What are you doing?
Gabi: Sometimes you got to improvise.
Vivo: Oh, no.
Gabi: Hold on tight, Vivo!
Gabi: Hey, Vivo, are you scared? You know, my dad used to sing to me when I was scared.
Vivo: So did Andrés.
Gabi: Hey, we could sing Marta’s song. That would cheer us up.
Gabi: [singing] I am here, just on another shore. Always in your corner, watching you soar!
Gabi: Drumming’s in my blood. I could teach you if you want.
Vivo: You’re going to teach me how to play drums?
Gabi: [gives Vivo two sticks] Here, Vivo. Check this out. Try a simple beat.
Vivo: [as Gabi starts drumming] That thing you’re doing is noise. Observe.
Gabi: [as Vivo expertly starts drumming]Wow, you learn quick. I must be a really good teacher.
Vivo: Uh-huh. Follow my lead, kid.
Gabi: Woh. This sounds good!
Vivo: Yeah, I see a potential. Raw talent.
Gabi: Come on, Vivo. Let loose, grandpa.
Vivo: Grandpa? Could a grandpa do this?
Gabi: Oh, yeah, Vivo.
Gabi: Come on. You can stop now! Let’s keep the beat going, partner!
Vivo: Not the beat. Not my partner.
Gabi: We don’t have much time.
Dancarino: What are you going to do now?
Vivo: I don’t know, but sometimes you got to improvise!
Vivo: [as Gabi falls into the water] And she missed.
Gabi: We got this, Vivo!
Gabi: Unbreakable bonds. That’s what we got.
Rosa: That love, Gabriela, that love lives forever, in your heart.
