Watch: This scene from Netflix’s animated musical ‘Vivo’ is a burst of sunshine on rainy days


Netflix has dropped a full scene from its upcoming animated musical Vivo, and it’s out to send you a lot of happy vibes amid the ho-hum rainy days.

Released on Netflix’s YouTube channel on Wednesday, July 21, the clip features the titular character—a rainforest “honey bear”—and his newfound energetic purple-haired friend Gabi.

The unlikely duo traverses the Florida Everglades in their makeshift raft while belting out the song “Keep the Beat” composed by Lin-Manuel Miranda, an award-winning playwright best known for Hamilton and In the Heights.

The film follows Vivo as he embarks on a mission to deliver a special message from his owner, Andrés, to Andrés’ beloved old partner, Marta, who lives a world apart. It features all-original songs written by Miranda.

Directed by Kirk DeMicco and Brandon Jeffords, Vivo has a packed voice cast led by Miranda as Vivo. He is joined by Juan de Marcos as Andrés, Gloria Estefan as Marta, and newcomer Ynairaly Simo as Gabi, among others.

Vivo is produced by Sony Pictures Animation and distributed by Netflix. It is scheduled to premiere on August 6, 2021.
