Who doesn’t love an animated film about a sweet and cuddly creature that’s also packed with music? Thanks to Netflix and Sony Pictures Animation, Vivo checks all the boxes.

Featuring our fave musical guru Lin-Manuel Miranda, Vivo tells the story of a kinkajou on a mission to deliver a special message. Oh yeah, but what’s a kinkajou?

Now that we know all about the rainforest “honey bear,” we’re even more excited to watch the musical adventure. Along with Miranda, Vivo also shares the voices of newcomer Ynairaly Simo, Zoe Saldaña, Michael Rooker, Gloria Estefan, Nicole Byer and more.

Vivo will debut only on Netflix this Fri., Aug. 6.
