Dia of the Dead
Available on Tubi TV, Plex
Itʼs the Mexican Day of the Dead, and little Chiqui misses his mama terribly! Two years ago, she left home in the middle of the night to journey to The Beyond, a phantasmagoric land of the dead, which hosts an annual talent show to crown the Greatest Singer Beyond the Beyond - and Chiquiʼs mama, Julieta, is a luchadora with a dream, to become the most renowned singer ever! Determined to dance with his mama during her performance, young Chiqui sets out with his Papa Diego, the hulking luchador, to find The Beyond himself, and help put his familia back together! In trouble with a pair of bumbling skeletal sheriffʼs deputies AND the vengeful ten thousand year-old diva, Erasma Bones, the father/son duo forge onward, in search of El Monstruo, the legendary tree spirit that grants the living entry into the realm of the dead! With the competition drawing nearer, an otherworldly assortment of friends and foes in their way, and the clock ticking fast on the Day of the Dead, Chiqui and Papa Diego race against time to find their beloved matriarch, help her win the competition, and escape the realm of the dead alive!
