Jorge R. Gutiérrez’s Mission To Bring More Latinos To The Screen In Adventure Series ‘Maya And The Three’ 

FW Jorge R. Gutiérrez Interview 10.29.21

The new Netflix miniseries “Maya and the Three” is set in a Mesoamerican kingdom known as Teca and follows 15-year-old Maya, a Latin American warrior-princess. Maya undertakes a daunting mission to fulfill an ancient prophecy and save humanity. She’s not the only one with an important pursuit. Director Jorge R. Gutiérrez, known for his work on other animated projects like “El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera” and “The Book of Life,” wants to bring more Latino representation to the screen. And he wants to do it in a way that allows kids to see themselves as heroes in tales of grand adventure, like “Maya and the Three.” Today on FilmWeek, Larry talks with Gutiérrez along with animation critic Charles Solomon about the series and various visual styles.
