Maya and the Three is coming to Netflix but its going to be bittersweet. Tangent Animation is closing down. This show will be their final hurrah but it will be a great one. The Audience will get to explore the pre-colonial Mesoamerican culture of the Mayans. Most media depiction of Mayans had been dark and this will be a great contrast to learn about the culture. Tangent Animation made Netflix original movies like Next Gen,Ozzy and The Book of Life. Jorge R. Gutiérrez,made a statement about the closing of the studio.
This is heartbreaking. I wholeheartedly adored working with all the brilliant and ridiculously talented artists, artisans and producers at Tangent. What they accomplished with Maya and the Three is EPIC. I’m jealous of future directors that will be lucky to create with them. https://t.co/Q2TX8HHrX4
The Legacy of Tangent studios may end but this show will leave childhood memories to the audience. Maya and the Three will be the magnum opus to cement the legacy of Tangent Animation. Let’s hope the show will be finalized with closure instead of a cliffhanger because no way a studio that closed down will be able to make a second season.
Maya and the Three is about a Maya(Zoe Saldana), A warrior princess who will go on a journey. She needs to find warriors that will help her save humanity from destruction.
This is Zoe Saldana’s second project with Tangent. She previously played Maria in The book of life. That is before she got the lead role in Avatar. The series boasts colorful visuals that show stunning views of a lush green tropical environment and Mayan Architecture. Little girls will resonate with the Princess who wants to prove herself and Little boys will love the action and adventure. The series is also a great representation of Hispanic culture because the all-star cast is of Hispanic descent. Gael García Bernal,Rosie Perez, Danny Trejo and Isabela Merced (the live-action Dora the Explorer) are some of the stars who are part of the ensemble.
