Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector (voice of Gael García Bernal), and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel's family history. Directed by Lee Unkrich (“Toy Story 3”), co-directed by Adrian Molina (story artist “Monsters University”) and produced by Darla K.

In the interview, Angelica Vale reveals she actually went in to audition for the same role but the English version. She didn't realize then it was an older character so she used her natural voice. It wasn't until she was reading for dialogue for the Spanish version that she realized it was the same role.
