Netflix presents ‘Maya y Los Tres’
Maya and The Three enters a fantastic world full of magic – which is said to be inspired by The Lord of the Rings – where a warrior princess with Mesoamerican inspiration embarks on an epic quest to fulfill an ancient prophecy and save humanity of the vengeful gods of the underworld. To do this, she will have to find three mythical warriors who will help her fulfill her mission.
In a press release, Jorge R. Gutiérrez told a little about what influenced him to create this story, which has a strong roots in its Mexican roots and in the ancestral cultures that once inhabited our country:
“As a lifelong lover of fantasy films from around the world and deeply inspired by the glorious Mesoamerican art and exhibits at the National Museum of Anthropology in my native Mexico City, I created Maya as our own fiercely rebellious eagle warrior princess. . Our young heroine is lovingly inspired by the true Mexican warrior women in my life: my mother, my sister and my eternal muse, my wife ”.
Gustavo Santaolalla composed the music for this film
As if this wasn’t enough to get us excited, an animated film about the wonderful civilizations that populated Mexico arrives, behind the music of Maya and The Three this Gustavo Santaolalla, a very important producer for Latin rock, who has composed the original songs for projects such as The Last of Us and he has a couple of Oscars among his awards.
