Galicia is, without a doubt, one of the Europe’s places with more and better legendary tradition. It´s well known, also, that, since the 90s of the last century, and until a few years after the 2008’s crisis, the animation produced in this community experienced a boom only similar to the problems suffered afterwards, by their studios, which did not prevent that the most elementary traces of mythology and legends of this land were exported, through the modern forms and arguments of the animated movies, sometimes with wide repercussion within and outside our borders. This article studies three of the films of the last stage of the phenomenon, delving into its mythological sources and, above all, in the translation of its ancestral poetics to current audiovisual narratives: “De profundis” (Miguelanxo Prado, 2006), “El apóstol” (Fernando Cortizo, 2012), and “Brujerías” (Virginia Curiá / Tomás Conde, 2013).
