Disturbing Images

I only sat through about 5 minutes of this before someones heart was pulled out while magical demigods with non stop overstimulating flashing violent battle scenes went on forever. Super weird and crazy characters and voices; easily hooks the kid then blasts them with highly amplified fight scenes; you’ll see what I mean within minutes of play

Too much violence

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (12 ):
Kids say (7 ):

Maya and the Three is a visually stunning animated TV series with a storyworld that's so immersive it feels more like a movie. Creator Jorge R. Gutierrez has called the series a "Mexican Lord of the Rings," and it's easy to see why. The story follows the hero Maya's epic quest through a richly imagined fantasy world full of imagery inspired by Aztec, Incan, and Mayan art. There are many imaginative characters voiced by a star-studded Latino cast (voice actors include Rita Moreno, Rosie Perez, and Cheech Marin). Maya herself is great: both an incredibly strong and brave female character and a flawed, moody teenager at the same time. Kids will love the gorgeously designed characters, as well as the constant humor laced throughout the series. There's no shortage of excitement and action, and kids will be rooting for Maya to prevail. The story is compelling enough that grown-ups will enjoy watching along, making this series a great pick for families with older kids.
