Check the trailer below.
When he was in Rome, Italy, for the premiere at the Ginnika Festival, Zero interviewed García and he said that Miranda’s featuring it was special for him and that is was filmed while the actor was in London.
Q: There’s a featuring that is special for you?
A: Yes, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s: it was the most difficult interview to do. He is always busy so we had to fly to London with the entire crew with only two days notice. Anyway, it was worth 1,000%. We respect each other so much and this mutual energy really shone during our chat for the film.
