When I told my six year old I was going to meet the pups from Beverly Hills Chihuahua, she asked me…in a very serious tone, “mom, are they going to talk to you?” It’s for that very reason that Disney’s magic is in our children and just makes me love the company, it’s brand, and it’s movies that much more!
Everyone’s favorite Chihuahuas are unleashed as Beverly Hills Chihuahua 3: Viva La Fiesta! is out today on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download! Those adorable talking dogs are back and are moving into the Langham Huntington Pasadena Hotel with their owners but there is trouble in paradise! Rosa, the littlest member of the pack feels smaller and less special than the rest of her family and friends and it’s up to Papi to help find and celebrate Rosa’s inner strength! It’s all about the importance of family, friends, and teamwork in this 3rd installment of the Beverly Hills Chihuahua series and the making of the Quince for Rosa is a fun, festive, and humorous tale!
Check out some of the scenes from the movie!

Our take: First and foremost, we watched the movie for the first time at the actual hotel the movies was filmed entirely at, that was a bit surreal. Watching the scenes and saying, “I can see that pool from my room,” “we had our lunch in that garden,” and “I’ve slept in those rooms!” is so neat and I really thing the Langham is going to be swamped with reservation after that amazing branding done in the movie. Watching the movie without the distractions of work, dishes, and laundry at home was nice too because I could really focus on the movie magic and was amazed about the challenges there is to work with animals as the stars of a film.
The humans in the film were great, there was a good storyline, and adding the stuffy character of Amelia James (Frances Fisher) and Charlotte was antagonistic enough yet still classy and believable. The humor of George Lopez really makes you smile throughout the film, but what’s going to catch you is the love. Being Mexican though I never had a Quince, I love the traditional music, the family support, and the ceremonial aspect of the movie and I thought they did it very nicely and not tacky.
DESIGNING COSTUMES FOR DOGS MUST HAVE BEEN A HOOT. WHAT WAS IT ABOUT THIS DESIGN CHALLENGE THAT INTRIGUED YOU ENOUGH TO ACCEPT THE ASSIGNMENT?
FH: Well, I like doing comedies. My resume is filled with doing spoof comedies and I thought, how many opportunities will I get to dress a Chihuahua in a scuba suit? I actually love to design and build stuff and what’s fun about a show like this is that I’m designing and building things from the ground up and having them made. I’m having them engineered and it’s a fun challenge. I know how to dress people. People are easy to make stuff for. Dogs are much more challenging especially for my tailors, and having to explain to them what I’m making.
Now my youngest was SO excited to see the movie and throughout would say, “mommy you were there!” “mommy, you met those dogs!” it was really special to see it again with her. She loved the part of Rosa rescuing Charlotte from the pool even though Rosa was just out of floaties. “She was so BRAVE mom!” Plus, the scuba suit Papi wore made her laugh immensely. We also enjoyed the music auditions with the great names of the bands!
