“The four chapters of the new series continue with the adventures of a young Javier Sierra and how he is gradually becoming interested, and with increasing intensity, in the mysteries that surround us,” Fernando Jerez told IFEMA, director of non-fiction content of Movistar +. “But what we can see this Christmas on channel # 0 is an Egyptian preamble to those chapters that will arrive in February. Sierra wanted to give us his passion for Egypt, which is also ours, approaching his favorite pharaonic enigmas in two special episodes that we will see on December 22 and 29, and then will be available on demand on our platform. ”
Javier Sierra explained that, how could it be otherwise, the first of those chapters – the one that was screened at the premiere in scoop – is dedicated to the night that Napoleon spent at the Great Pyramid of Giza in August 1799. “That history has become an obsession for me, ”he admitted.
“After I locked myself up one night in the Chamber of the King of the Great Pyramid trying to understand what happened to Napoleon in there, my perception of the world changed. Somehow I felt like dying… and whoever dies and returns from that trance, necessarily mutates. ” Sierra published a few years ago The Immortal Pyramid (Planet), a novel on this issue; He has now filmed this chapter entitled “The Pyramid Test,” and plans to launch a comic on the issue with NORMA Editorial at the end of 2020. “Yes. It is an obsession, ”he reaffirmed.
The new episodes feature remarkable cinematographic sequences shot inside the Great Pyramid and the Abydos temple, in southern Egypt. “The talent of director Alfonso Cortés-Cavanillas stands out again, filming in places often hostile to state-of-the-art technological equipment, where recording is a feat,” said Sierra.
The pyramid test can be seen on channel # 0 next Sunday, December 22, at 10 pm. And a week later, The Enigma of Omm Seti, at the same time. For the rest, we will have to wait two months. Meanwhile, the shooting of the Other Worlds team.
