Coincidentally during Hispanic Heritage Month, on September 18th, Disney releases the super popular third in the trilogy of the beloved Beverly Hills Chihuahua 3, Viva La Fiesta! on Blu-rayTM Combo Pack, DVD and Digital!
I really did enjoy the first of the films, Beverly Hills Chihuahua, when it was theatrically released, but back then, I did not expect it to have a sequel, Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 (direct-to-video 2011), let alone a third film now.
It is not really unexpected though, as people love the pups in general, let alone, Hollywood’s favorite Chihuahuas, Papi (voice of George Lopez) and Chloe (voice of Odette Annable), who are back, joined by their five playful pups for a fiesta of family-friendly fun. Papi and Chloe’s pack of five pups include the voices of Kay Panabaker (“Little Birds”) as Rosa, Emily Osment (TV’s “Hannah Montana”) as Pep, Madison Pettis (Disney Junior’s “Jake and the Never Land Pirates,” Game Plan) as Lala, Logan Grove (TV’s “Young Justice”) as Papi, Jr., and Delany Jones as Ali.
This is an all-new family comedy. It’s canine chaos as Papi’s family (dog and human) move into the posh Langham Hotel, complete with a luxurious doggy spa. But there’s trouble in puppy paradise when Rosa, the littlest member of the pack, feels smaller and less special than ever. Now it’s up to Papi to help Rosa find – and celebrate – her inner strength, which turns out to be bigger than she ever dreamed and reminds humans and canines alike of the importance of family, friends and teamwork.
The canine cast features the voice talents of Miguel Ferrer (Beverly Hills Chihuahua, Traffic) as Delgado, Eddie “Piolin” Sotelo (Beverly Hills Chihuahua, Hispanic National Radio Morning Show DJ) as Humberto and Tom Kenny (SpongeBob Square Pants) as Sebastian.
The film’s human stars include Marcus Coloma (TV’s “Make It or Break It,” South Beach) and Erin Cahill (“Fast Track: No Limits”, Boogeyman 3) who reprise their roles from Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 as the dog’s masters, Sam and Rachel Cortez, plus Frances Fisher (The Lincoln Lawyer and TV’s “Torchwood”) as travel writer Amelia James.
Bonus features on the disc include the featurette “Hanging with Papi,” a playful look at a typical day on-set for Papi and both his human and canine costars, and the English and Spanish versions of “Living Your Dreams” an all-new music video performed by Raini Rodriguez, star of Disney Channel’s popular series “Austin and Ally.”
Rodriguez has been moving along in her career in other than TV series, with her roles in Prom (2011) and Girl in Progress (2012). The music video allows her to show off her vocal abilities, adding more to her already popular status.
Fans of Papi and Chloe will certainly want this exciting and playful new installment, Beverly Hills Chihuahua 3: Viva La Fiesta! to add to the family fun for everyone.
Based on characters created by Jeff Bushell, the film is written by Dana Starfield. It is directed by Lev L. Spiro and produced by Sara E. White.
The feature Run Time is approximately 89 minutes and it does have subtitles: English SDH, French and Spanish
