09 de noviembre de 2018


Cinelatino will celebrate Thanksgiving Day with the exclusive U.S. television premiere of the highest-grossing Latino film of 2015, Un Gallo con Muchos Huevos (Huevos: Little Rooster's Egg-cellent Adventure).

The third installment in the blockbuster Huevosanimated film franchise, the 3D computer generated film will premiere on Thursday, November 22 at 7pm ET / 4pm PT, with back-to-back repetitions at 9pm ET and 11pm ET as the headline of the network’s special Thanksgiving Day programming.

Released in Mexico in August of 2015, Un Gallo con Muchos Huevos quickly became the highest grossing animated film to have been produced in Mexico and the industry’s seventh of all time, spending three weeks as the #1 movie in the box-office. It’s success only fortified when it shocked the world as the first animated Mexican film to premiere theatrically in the United States, opening at #9 and becoming a surprise box-office success.

The film tells the story of Toto, (voiced by Bruno Bichir), a small rooster who was born the runt of the litter. But, when an evil rancher threatens to destroy his home and his family, Toto must go from a timid young “chicken” to a brave and scrappy rooster. Toto and his friends (voices include: Angélica Vale, Maite Perroni, Omar Chaparro, Ninel Conde, and Carlos Espejel) must band together on an “eggs-traordinary” adventure that will prove that big surprises can come from little packages.

Un Gallo con Muchos Huevos is one of Pantelion Films’ highest grossing movies of all time and the highest-grossing Spanish-language animated film ever released in the U.S., and we have no doubt that our viewers will love every second of this “egg-citing” film,” said James M. McNamara, Vice Chairman of Hemisphere Media Group, Inc., Cinelatino’s parent company.
