Title: Maya and the Three
From the director who brought us the beautiful film The Book of Life which came out about 7 years ago back in 2014 comes a new limited series on Netflix called Maya and the Three. It’s about the Teca eagle warrior Maya and the prophecy of three warriors and a little eagle who are going to save the world from the God Of War and his evil doings!!!!!!!!!!!
The cast is definitely already amazing – it includes the director himself Jorge R Gutierrez, Isabela Merced (Instant Family and the live-action Dora), Gael García Bernal, Alfred Molina, Kate del Castillo, Rita Moreno (One Day at a Time and Singing in the Rain), Stephanie Beatriz ( Brooklyn Nine-Nine and the upcoming Encanto), and lastly Allen Maldonado!!!!!!!
This is a little fun fact but you can hear Zoe Saldana, Diego Luna, and Gabriel Iglesias who all three presented their voices as Maria, Manolo, and Pepe in The Book of Life but now Zoe plays the title character Maya, Diego plays Zatz the Prince of Bats, and you can hear Gabriel now play the mighty Picchu!!!!
Zatz is who you think is evil but throughout the series he is leaning towards the good side and becomes Maya’s true love. That’s all I’m going to say, but rowr.
Anywho you guys I hope you love this series because I can tell you I finished all the episodes with my Dad and Mom and I freaking bawled my eyes – it’s that good! Make sure you check out The Book of Life especially during the Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos) because Jorge makes absolutely beautiful stories that will freaking bawl your eyes out!!!!!!!!!!!!!
