‘Vivo’s' official trailer details how Vivo embarks a journey to deliver a message to his owner’s long-lost love, Marta.

As the trailer starts, Vivo (Lin-Manuel Miranda), a rainforest bear, can be seen spending his days playing music with his beloved owner Andrés (Juan de Marcos).

It’s seriously too adorable to handle.

However, once Andrés receives a letter from the famous singer Marta Sandoval (Gloria Estefan) asking him to accompany her on stage for a duet, things change. Andrés tells Vivo that he and Marta were once very close and that he was always in love with her.

“She was also the love of my life, but I never told her how I felt,” Andrés says in the trailer.

So, Vivo takes it upon himself to deliver a message that Andrés was unable to: a love letter to Marta.

Oscar nominee Kirk DeMicco directed the film, and the script was penned by In the Heights writer Quiara Alegria Hudes. So, it's safe to say that Vivo will deliver the Latin flair we all know and love.
