“This is the culmination of the saga, it was an important process for us and everything we learned in the four films above is reflected in the fifth.
“For us it is the best film in terms of animation, sound, history and the most important message that needs to be strengthened right now is the family, the issue of family union and all the characters They are going in that direction,” Rodolfo said at a press conference.
The film features the dubbing voices of actors such as Carlos Espejel, Bruno Bichir, Maite Perroni, Vadhir Derbez, Mauricio Castillo, Miguel Rodarte, Angélica Vale, among others.
“This is a project that started with a very small budget, nobody wanted to invest in it or bet on the animation in Mexico, but these guys (the brothers) ventured out and did the feat and achieved great success.

I am proud that we are spearheading and presenting the best and, above all, highlighting the talent of Mexico,” said Gabriel.
The filmmakers assured that, due to the changes in current social discourses, some of them had to be modified jokes within the story, in order not to affect any sector, of course, without neglecting the essence that characterizes them, that is, a double meaning humor for adults and the whitest comedy for children.

“There are some jokes that could be out of tune, so we always do constant script readings, focus group. This tape it was done four years ago and something that was good at that time, today no longer, but that we changed some jokes to lighten it, “commented Rodolfo de la tapewhich premiered for the first time in platform and is available at Vix+.
