[Western movie music plays]
[man] Cha-chung!
- [exciting music plays faintly]
- [rumbling]
[snake rattling]
[warriors chanting] Teca! Teca!
Protect Princess Maya!
Teca! Destroy Divine Gate!
Teca! Save Kingdom of Teca!
[Maya] Careful, careful, careful!
[Queen] Ay, gordo,
we need the other kingdoms.
This could've been done
with more diplomacy.
You want Lord Mictlan to sacrifice Maya?
- Hold her, Daggers.
- I got it, Shield.
No, I'm Shield. I think.
Should've told her the truth years ago.
But if I'm not Shield,
whose hands are these?
[both yelp]
- [grunts]
- [rope whips]
Ow. Ay!
I don't think my arm is healed yet.
Thank you, helpful strangers!
[Jaguars] Any time, sister!
- Why would you do such a foolish thing?
- I overheard everything.
This This isn't easy to discuss.
Well, Papa could have said
[in deep voice] "And by the way,
Maya, the gods do walk among us,
and I cheated on your mother
with one of them,
and then boom! You were born."
Don't "mija" me. You could have told me
my birth mother is Lady Micte.
When you were young,
it seemed too soon to tell you.
And then well, too much time had passed.
How could you betray my your wife?
Weren't you angry, Mama?
[chuckles] Oh, I was furious.
It was the first time I stabbed him.
I can still fit my finger
in the stabby hole.
You were just a baby
when the forest spirits brought you.
[gentle music plays]
[birds chirping]
- [squeals, giggles]
- Your father recognized your necklace
- belonged to a death goddess.
- [gasps]
And right then and there, we knew.
- You were their child.
- [coos]
- But I couldn't be angry at you.
- [babbles]
This was not a choice you made.
You were pure in an impure world.
I am so sorry, Maya.
And my birth mother, why
Why did she abandon me?
- [chirps]
- Why does she want to kill me now?
Ay, mija, none of us can hope
to comprehend the gods.
I hate her with all my heart.
And you for lying about my mother.
Maya! Listen to me, mija.
You're a part of your father.
And you're a part of me.
I may not have given birth to you,
but I raised you.
I am your mother.
Wait, wait. So, if I'm half god,
- am I invincible?
- [pokes]
- Ouch!
- No.
- [King chuckles]
- Okay, okay. [chuckles]
I will make it up to you, Maya.
- [roars]
- This I swear.
- [epic music plays]
- [warriors chanting] Teca! Teca! Teca!
Could I just go
and see them destroy the Divine Gate?
Just to watch. Please!
[softly] Please?
[laughs] Oh.
Mija, you're not a part of the prophecy.
I need you to stay here
and help me protect the kingdom.
- The Divine Gate will crumble before us!
- [Jaguars] Teca!
- We are the prophecy made flesh, mijos!
- [Jaguars] We got this, Papa!
- [pokes]
- [exclaims in Spanish] My eye!
He doesn't got this.
- You guys need to look out for him.
- We'll help him fight!
We'll help him eat!
We'll help him pee?
- Your brother Lance
- Your brother Daggers
And your brother Shield
- We swear an oath
- to destroy the Divine Gate.
And prevent the gods
from entering the world.
And ensure your safety, little sister.
Oh, my jaguars.
You take care of each other, you hear me?
- I love you all.
- [Maya] Ugh.
I'm so jealous you guys get to
go on this adventure, hermanos.
- Prophecy or not
- You are a great warrior, Maya.
- We'll see you soon, hermana.
- [Jaguars] Aw.
- [snarls]
- [laughing]
[speaking Spanish]
- [snarls]
- [laughs]
Good boy, Chiapa.
[snarls in surprise, groans]
- [Shield] Here you go, Papa.
- Gracias, mijo. [gasps]
If it is to be
It is up to me.
- [warriors chanting] Teca! Teca! Teca!
- See you soon, Maya!
[chanting continues]
Be safe, my loves!
[laughs] Oh!
I have a battle jaguar.
What could be safer?
We ride for glory. We ride for Maya!
Ride, Mighty Eagle and Jaguars!
Show the gods the might of the Tecas!

[crow cawing]
[bats screeching]
[wings flapping]
[snarls, chomps]
[animals grunting and squawking]
Warriors of Teca, prepare for battle.
Lance ready.
Shield ready, Papa.
Daggers even readier.
[Mictlan] Did you know
that prophecies are just stories?
Fables, you know, uh
[speaks Spanish]
They're there to make children believe
their parents are in control. [chuckles]
Ah, such a pity that none of you
will make it to the Divine Gate. [laughs]
[wind whooshing]
- Your journey ends here, mortals.
- [warriors gasp]
You, little eagle man.
You must be the one they call King Teca.
And you, monster,
you must be Lord Mictlan.
I am the god of
- [resounding]war!
- [wind whooshing]
[distorted laugh]
[whimpers] It's too much!
[warriors chanting] Teca! Teca!
- [Chiapa snarls]
- [Jaguars] We are the prophecy!
And we shall end you!
[laughs] Ay!
- For Maya! [battle cry]
- [roars]
- [Jaguars] For Maya!
- [warriors yelling] Teca!
- [mysterious flute music plays]
- [jungle sounds]
[eagle shrieks]
Oh, I can't wait for them to return, Mama!
[laughs] Ay, Maya.
The journey
to the Divine Gate is long, mija.
It'll take time.
In the meantime,
we need to keep ourselves busy.
Right. Mama, I'm hungry.
[gasps] I will cook your favorite dish.
[speaks Spanish]
Gracias, Mamá.
Oh, this is such a cool scar!
- I can't wait to show my brothers.
- [chirps]
- [Western movie music plays]
- I mean, I could wait until they're back,
but maybe I can meet them halfway.
Hmm. [laughs]
[jungle noises]
Papa. Hermanos. It's me, Maya.
- [rustling]
- [Chiapa snarls softly]
What in the n [gasps]
- Papa!
- [weakly] Maya. Run, mija.
- [grunts in surprise]
- [huffs]
[whimpers, whines]
You want him,
you'll have to go through me.
Ah, courage runs
through your veins, Princess.
[in low voice] Leave, now.
[King growls]
I mean you no harm, King Teca.
You're hurt.
A fight now will be dishonorable.
- Your brothers' weapons
- [gasps]
they belong to your family now.
- Honor them.
- Oh no.
[gasps sadly]
No. [sobs]
I am sorry for your loss.
- Be well, Princess Maya.
- [roars]
I'll see you soon.
- [cracking]
- [groans]
Papa, what happened?
Your brothers, our mighty army,
they are no more.
- You fought all the gods?
- It was It was just Lord Mictlan.
- [gasps]
- Maya, they are coming for you.
I swear to you, Papa,
- I will avenge my brothers.
- [dramatic music rising]
- [music fades]
- [crickets chirping]
[footsteps approaching]
["Bolom Chon" plays]
[women sing "Bolom Chon" in Tzotzil]
In this realm and the great beyond,
you honor us
with your sacrifice, brothers.
[music fading]
[music ends]
[gentle music plays]
- [whooshing]
- [wings fluttering]
[music continues]
[jaguar snarls]
[music continues]
- [rumbling snarl]
- [sobbing, apologizes in Spanish]
If it wasn't for the prophecy,
I would have been there
to fight by your side.
- [twinkling]
- [faint jaguar snarl]
[liquid moving]
- [power hums]
- Rooster?
- [power hums]
- Skull?
- [power hums]
- Puma?
Rooster, skull, puma.
[jaguar snarls faintly]
[exhales sharply] Huh?
[gasps] I've seen those symbols together.
Oh! Oh!
- Gracias, hermanos.
- [faint snarl]
- [gentle flute music plays]
- Rooster, skull, pum [grunts]
Rooster, skull, puma!
Rooster, skull, puma! [shrieks]
[woozily] Rooster, skull, puma.
[music becomes mysterious]
Rooster, skull, puma, and Little Eagle
fighting a two-headed serpent? What?
Ugh, okay, okay. So, wait.
So, rotate the sun to get the
Wait, wait. The whole sun?
[sighs] This makes no sense, brothers.
Okay. Okay, okay.
You rotate the whole sun
- Yes! [grunts]
- [thuds]
Wait. Rooster?
[gasps] Rooster!
[sighs, gasps]
Papa! Mama!
[King] Por favor, Maya.
What is going on with you?
Mis hermanos, they came to me in a vision.
Like, with gold tears, and there was
a rooster, skull, and puma. They said
- What?
- [yawns] Have you been here all night?
Papa, please,
just spin the table to the left.
Please. Just trust me.
Maya, you sound loca, mija.
- [rumbles]
- [gasps]
See? It works!
- [gasps]
- Help me line up the rooster.
[straining] Keep turning.
- [rumbles]
- [grunts] Stop. Stop.
[gasps] A rooster wizard. [gasps]
- [exciting music plays]
- Mama, help me line up the skulls.
[rumbles, thuds]
- A skull archer.
- [thuds]
[music intensifies]
[yelps, gasps]
And a puma warrior!
Oh my gods.
What does it all mean?
We had the Teca prophecy wrong
all this time. That's why we lost.
The real prophecy is that the rooster,
a skull, a puma, and a little eagle
will team up to save the world!
Where are we supposed to find
these legendary warriors?
- I think we're about to find out.
- [clanking]
[King gasps]
[statue thuds]
Come on!
My brothers were right.
So, if we follow the sunlight,
the Rooster Wizard will be in Luna Island,
the Skull Archer in the Jungle Lands,
and the Puma Warrior
in the Golden Mountains.
And according to the ancient scrolls,
the Little Eagle shall lead them.
- [both] Little Eagle?
- You were
are both Eagle Warriors.
- [both gasp]
- Wha
I'm the Eagle Warrior to lead them all!
- [grunts]
- [thuds]
- [rumbling]
- [snake rattles]
[Zatz] Princess Maya is different, Father.
[chuckles] You should have seen her,
courageous and and loyal.
And beautiful.
Be quiet, mijo. He will hear you.
You want Lord Mictlan
to take your other eye?
Do not get attached.
That would be very dangerous, my boy.
[echoes] Zatz!
- [wind whooshes]
- [crowd gasps]
- Stand before me, Prince of Bats.
- Yes, my lord.
This is the last time I will ask you.
Bring me the Teca princess. Bring her now!
- [speaks Spanish]
- Hmm?
She will be yours,
and her sacrifice will be delicious.
- Acat will bring her to you, my lord.
- Huh?
[Mictlan growls]
Your wish is always my command,
Lord Mictlan.
[chuckling] Very well, Acat.
I trust you two
will bring her back in one piece.
It will be our pleasure, my lord.
- [chuckles]
- [Zatz growls]
Alive, please, Prince of Bats.
She can only be sacrificed
if she's alive, girl.
Of course, my lady.
Cross my heart and hope to die.
- [power hums]
- [chuckles]
You're going to get yourself killed, Acat.
You worry too much, Zatz.
Sending children to fetch a child?
Husband, you are incorrigible.
- [upbeat music plays]
- Okay, here's my plan.
And it can't fail!
First, I will ride Chiapa
to the Endless Forest.
- Roar!
- [mews]
I'll journey to Luna Island.
Gallop, gallop, gallop.
Then I'll go, "Oh, hey, Gran Bruja."
"You're the Great Rooster Wizard,
so will you join me on my quest?"
"Let's do this, girl."
She'll call a magic cloud or something
and I will fly to the Jungle Lands.
And then I'll talk
to the little skull girl.
"Hey, Widow Queen. I need to borrow
your greatest Skull Warrior."
And she'll be like,
"Take this bad hombre. He's yours."
And then we all jump back on the cloud
and fly to the Golden Mountains.
Then the Barbarian Princess
will see my group of adventurers
and will beg to join our quest.
"Princess, I am the Great Puma Warrior.
Let me join your team."
"You got it, Barbarian Princess!
Ride or die."
The best part of it all
is there's no actual fighting.
It's just a gathering
of three awesome warriors.
And then I'll come back
to Teca totally safe.
By then, Papa will be healed
and ready to rumble.
Mama, you get to be a warrior again.
And with the three Great Warriors
by our side, we are off!
Together, we will destroy the Divine Gate,
- and we save the world!
- [roaring whoosh]
[sighs] The end.
I love this plan.
But it can't be that easy.
I know, I know.
Sacrifices will have to be made.
And some, eh, might not make it back.
Gran Bruja, probably. [grunts]
- [all laughing]
- [exclaims in Spanish]
The Little Eagle finally
gets to go on her first adventure!
And if you're not in Teca,
hmm, it will be harder
for Lord Mictlan to find you.
- That's right.
- All right, Maya.
For this mission of diplomacy,
you must be properly dressed.
[flute music plays faintly]
Oh, no, no, no, no.
Not another princess dress, please!
I could barely walk in that last one.
[sighs] Never thought
- this would see the light of day again.
- [rumbles]
- [gasps] Wow.
- [music intensifies]
[King laughs, exclaims in Spanish]
Your mama used to do
some damage with that thing.
[chuckles] Yeah, I bet.
It was a true honor for any warrior
to die by her beautiful hand.
[clicks tongue] Ay, gordo,
you say the sweetest things.
And now my Eagle armor is yours, Maya.
Gracias, Mamá.
[chokes up]
- [clangs]
- [grunts]
[sniffs] Ew.
- [clunks]
- This was my first weapon.
Ah. We fought the whole world together.
Eagle Claw!
Oh, yeah. To be young again.
- Ooh!
- And now Eagle Claw is yours, Maya.
I accept it in the name of the Tecas.
And I will wield it with pride.
Our little Eagle Warrior is ready.
[owl hooting]
[King] Chiapa has been
through all the realms.
He'll guide you.
And you'll have the map we made for you.
- Chiapa!
- [whistles]
[whispers] Perhaps he isn't quite ready.
- [stomps] Chiapa, come out here!
- Easy, Papa.
[snarls softly]
Come on, old friend.
We need you for one last mission.
- [Mictlan chuckles]
- [sounds of battle]
[Maya] Chiapa?
I need you, Chiapa.
All we have to do
is bring back three warriors.
- I promise.
- Mm-mm.
- [gentle music continues]
- I can't do this without you.
[snarls uncertainly]
[snarls loudly]
- [birds chirping]
- [jungle noises]
You have everything you need.
Follow the map.
Thank you.
Speak to no one, Maya.
- And no matter what, no fighting.
- [gentle music continues]
Take care of each other
and do not separate.
May the celestials
illuminate your way, mija.
[sighs] We shall see you soon.
- If it is to be
- It is up to me.
- [heroic music plays]
- [roars]
[both] Fly, Little Eagle!
[music continues]
[eagle shrieks]
[music continues]
[Chiapa snarls]
[owl hooting]
- [yawns]
- [snoring softly]
I think we're getting close
to Luna Island, Chiapa.
[bird chirping]
[snarling yawn]
[Acat chuckles]
- [gasps] No, no, no, no, no!
- [snarls]
No, no, no, no, no.
[gasps] And our supplies!
- [Chiapa] Huh?
- [gasps]
- Ah No! What are we gonna do?
- [groans]
[Acat chuckles]
That mocosa can't beat me.
Even for you, Acat, this is low.
Do you really need to weaken her
before you fight?
No. It's just, sometimes a cat likes to
play with her food, my handsome prince.
- This is not honorable.
- That hasn't bothered you before.
Mm. [kisses]
[bats screeching in distance]
- [whoosh]
- [bird caws]
No map, no supplies.
I can't go back a failure.
- [sighs]
- [stomach growls]
Was that your stomach or mine?
I can't even tell.
- [rustling]
- Hmm?
- [rabbit squeaks]
- [Chiapa] Huh?
[grunts happily]
- Easy, boy.
- [low snarl]
- [snarls]
- [exciting music playing]
[skids, giggles]
- [squeaks]
- [snarls]
Run, Chiapa! Don't lose him.
[blows kiss, grunts]
[music stops]
[groans, whimpers]
We need to eat.
[gasps, chomps] Mmm.
Are you seeing this, Chiapa?
[gasps] Seriously. I need to know
if I'm hallucinating from hunger.
[old woman] Perhaps an apple a day
will keep the healers away.
Whoa, I've seen you before.
Wait. Whoa, what?
What are you?
Are you Are you a forest spirit?
A forest deer. Nothing to fear.
Not the deer. Who are you?
We are the spring and we are the fall.
We are everything and nothing at all.
- What?
- We are Ah Puch.
Ah Puch. Ah Puch. Ah Puch.
- Ah Puch.
- [flutters]
A what?
Ah Puch is our name.
And this is all our game.
[sniffs, grunts]
- Ah, our dear Chiapa.
- [munches]
Courageous like your papa.
Anyway, Ah Puch,
can you guide us to Luna Island, please?
[deer grunts]
- [animal hoots]
- [snarls]
Danger approaches, Little Eagle.
You must fulfill the true prophecy.
Follow the clouds. Follow the clouds.
Follow the clouds. Follow the clouds.
You know about the true prophecy?
Wait. Why didn't that rhyme?
Follow what clouds?
[Acat] Oh, Princesa Maya,
come out to play-ee-ay! [laughs]
What? I know that laugh.
Ah Puch!
- [Chiapa snarls softly]
- Ah, great. Just great.
Hey, whoever you are,
too chicken to fight me one-on-one?
- [imitates chicken]
- [growls]
[exclaims in Spanish]
That stupid half-breed
did not just call me out!
Remember our mission.
[chuckles] Oh, I'm gonna enjoy punishing
that stuck-up princesa. [kisses]
Alive, Acat.
- But of course, mi príncipe.

- [growls]
- [clanks]
Wait. What? [clears throat]
- I am Princess Maya, Teca Eagle Warrior!
- [heroic music plays]
Prepare to taste my claw, cacaface!
[scoffs] Oh, I'm going to
have fun with you.
Did you think some spoiled,
privileged princess
- could take on a warrior goddess like me?
- [snakes rattling]
- Yeah, I think I can take you.
- Oh, it's on.
- [battle cries]

I like trees.

to kill me, we could be best friends.
What? Best friends? [grunts]
[heroic music plays]
- [grunts]
- [music fades]
I don't need any friends.
I've never needed anyone.

and give it to my boyfriend,
and we'll be together forever.

- Maya?
[growls] She has got to go.
[tense music plays]
Alive, Acat!
[bats whoosh]
Lord Mictlan needs her alive
for his sacrifice!
I'll just rearrange her face.
- [chuckles]
- [gasps]
[both grunt]
- You dropped this!
- [blade pierces]
You stabbed me with my own snake?
I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to.

Silly half-breed.

- [clangs]
- [music stops]
[both] What?
Enough, Acat.
But, Zatz, I
- [tense music plays]
- First you disobey Lord Mictlan,
and now you want to shoot
your opponent in the back.
You have no honor, Acat.
- [speaks incantation]
- [spell roars]
You and I were clearly a mistake.
[gasps softly]
Ooh! Ouch.
You'll be sorry for this, princesa.
- [grunts, gasps]
- [Zatz] Maya! Are you all right?
I don't need help from a demon who serves
the god monster that killed my brothers!
I'm no demon. I'm like you, a half human.
- Huh?
- Please, Maya. Climb the rope.
[Zatz chuckles]
Good thing that was there, huh?
"Good thing that was there, huh?"
Oh, ha ha ha.
[straining] Don't you dare think
that for one second I owe you anything,
Prince of Bats.
If anything, I should punch you in the
for everything that has happened
since you showed up,
you misbegotten son of a leprous dog.
Zatz, why would you help me?
- [triumphant music plays]
- Eagle Claw! Yes!
[Zatz] Be well, Princess Maya.
I'll see you soon.
Whatever, principito.

[children laughing]
La, la, la, la ♪
- [grunts]
- [yelps] I'm so sorry! Let me help you.
Gracias, niña linda.
[grunting painfully]
Oh, I'm so sorry.
Uh, do you know where I can find
the Wizard Council, by any chance?
[hesitantly] Yeah.
I'd tell you, but it's a secret
to the non-wizards and witches.
- Huh? Oh, of course. I get it. I guess.
- [clinks]
- [epic music plays]
- Welcome to the Luna Wizard Council.
- What? You mean I was already here?
- [mellow music continues]
Oh! You hustler!
I don't have time for this.
[coin clinks]
So, I told him, "Not today, Gandolfo!"
[all laughing]
- [thuds loudly]
- [gasps]
- Princesa Maya?
- [squawks]
The Teca prophecy was wrong.
[all gasp]
We are the prophecy.
- [dramatic music plays]
- And you, Gran Bruja,
are the Great Rooster Wizard I seek.
[all laughing]
No, wait! I am! [stammers]
I am. I'm the Great Eagle Warrior.
