A new trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s animated flick The Book of Life has been released, showing off a lot more of the trippy, Day of the Dead-style fairy tale.

The unique CGI film is produced by del Toro (Hellboy) and directed by Jorge Gutierrez, focusing on a twisted love story about a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart. The wild visuals will carry a journey through three fantastic worlds to face his greatest fears.

The new trailer shows off a bit more of the humor, and it looks like this could be one of the most distinctive animated flicks of the year. Between projects like this and Big Hero 6, it should be a good year for fans of quirky animated fare.

Check out the new cut below and let us know what you think:

The flick features a solid voice cast, including Channing Tatum, Zoe Saldana, Diego Luna, Ice Cube, Ron Perlman, Christina Applegate, Danny Trejo, Cheech Marin, Kate del Castillo and Eugenio Derbez.

The Book of Life opens Oct. 17.
