Netflix is making a big play for animation with today's announcement of six new projects across film and TV-but sitting at the intriguing heart of that is a new limited series from Book of Life director Jorge Gutierrez that aims to turn Latin American folklore into a new fantastical epic.

Rounding out the new series slate is Maya and the Three (pictured), which is set against a mythical Mesoamerican-inspired backdrop where a story unfolds about a warrior princess on a quest to find a trio of fighters to help save the world of men and gods. It is co-written and co-executive produced by Silvia Olivas (Elena of Avalor).
