Chupa: Start Date
The fantasy film will launch exclusively on the streaming provider Netflix on April 7, 2023.
Teenager Alex visits his family in Mexico for the first time, including his grandfather, former lucha libre champion Chava, his wrestling-obsessed cousin Memo and his spunky cousin Luna. When he finds a young chupacabra in his grandfather’s barn one day, he doesn’t yet know that an incredible adventure awaits him.
Chupacabras are considered to be feared creatures and are accordingly not very popular. In addition, the nasty scientist Richard Quinn has it on the misunderstood creature and tries with all means to get to the Chupacabra. Alex, his cousin and his cousin join forces to help the young creature and henceforth embark on an adventurous journey that they will probably never forget.
The young teenager Alex is embodied by Evan Whitten. He is joined in front of the camera by “Let the Right One In” actor Demián Bichir as Alex’s grandfather Chava, Nickolas Verdugo as Alex’s cousin Memo, Ashley Ciarra as Alex’s cousin Luna and Christian Slater (“Mr. Robot”) as scientist Richard Quinn.
So far there is no official trailer yet. Should this change in the future, you will find it here.
The film was produced by Chris Columbus, Mark Radcliffe and Michael Barnathan, and executive produced by G. Mac Brown, Anna Barnathan Barry and Brendan Bellomo. Jonás Cuarón served as director, while Sean Kennedy Moore, Joe Barnathan and Marcus Rinehart were responsible for the screenplay.
