Gutierrez and Equihua described characters including King Teca, the warrior king and Maya’s father (“he’s obsessed with fighting … he’s a teddy bear that can kill you”); Queen Teca, a diplomat Queen and Maya’s mother “whose design shows her “regalness and her strength;” and three older siblings, the jaguar brothers. “I’m a Ninja Turtles fans, these are my Mesoamerican jaguar warrior versions of that,” Gutierrez says.

Villains include Lord Mictlan, the God of war, who was inspired by Mictlantecuhtli, the Aztec god of the dead; Lady Micte, a goddess of death (whose face is “feminine, but like a skeleton”); Acat, the goddess of tattoos (a “sassy teenager”); and Zatz, the prince of bats, inspired by Camazotz, the bat god. headtopics.com

Maya’s journey will involve many locations. Gutierrez previewed a few, including the jungles lands, “a respectful, fantasy version of the Mayans;” and the Golden Mountains, inspired by Machu Picchu and Inca culture. Another location, Luna Island, was described by the director as a “love letter to modern Caribbean culture.” Shaped like a crescent moon and floating on the Earth, the island world is “obsessed with roosters (a Wizard Academy on the island is shaped like a giant rooster) and has island culture references.

Clips included one during which Maya’s parents present her with her mother’s eagle armor and father’s eagle claw weapon. Another was an action sequence featuring Maya in battle against Acat. Read more: Hollywood Reporter »
