The Legend of Guanajuato’s Mummies

This Mexican animated movie will premier on October 31 in more than 600 movie theaters in Mexico.

Las Momias de Guanajuato are one of the main attractions of the city of Guanajuato. The leyend has it that a great plague hit the city of Guanajuato in 1833. In order to prevent the plague from spreading, people were buried almost immediately after they died. But there were several occasions that people where buried alive and when these poor souls woke up from their trance state, they realized they were already buried in a tomb and had an agonizing death. Due to the rich mineral filled soil found in the city of Guanajuato, the bodies were naturally mummified.

This film is a sequel to the animated film “La Leyenda de La Llorona”. This time around the main character, Leo, will face the mummies that live in the city of Guanajuato. The movie “La Leyenda de Las Momias de Guanajuato” realized by Anima studios will promote the main attractions of Guanajuato on the big screen. Alberto Rodríguez, the director of the movie, felt that this film is would be a great project. Thanks to the state of Guanajuato the crew gained access to many places in the city to be able to include them in animated form. I hope this animated film will eventually hit U.S. movie screens.
