‘Matrix Resurrections’ will hit Spanish cinemas next December 17. Not long ago we were able to see his amazing trailer, which was loaded with details that prepare us for what this highly anticipated fourth installment of the saga is going to give us. We also already had a first synopsis, but it was not until now when Lana Wachowski has explained why she resurrected Neo and Trinity.
Curiously, the death of her father and mother was essential to this, because the same thing that led Lilly Wachowski not wanting to participate in ‘Matrix Resurrections’ was what led Lana to bring back the characters played by Keanu Reeves y Carrie-Anne Moss. This is how Lana has commented on the Berlin International Literature Festival:
My father died, then a friend, and then my mother. He really didn’t know how to process that kind of pain. I had not experienced it so closely … You know that their lives are going to end and despite that it was still very difficult. My brain has always caught up with my imagination and one night, I was crying and couldn’t sleep, and this whole story exploded in my brain. And I couldn’t have my mother and father, but suddenly I had Neo and Trinity, possibly the two most important characters in my life. It was immediately comforting to have these two characters alive again, and it was so simple. You can look at it and say, ‘ok, these two people die and okay, bring these two people back to life and, oh, that doesn’t add up.’ If he did! It’s simple, and this is what art does, and that is what stories do, they comfort us.
And it is that in the same way that the spectators can feel more comfortable living new adventures with already known characters, the same can happen when it comes to their own creation. In addition, there is the case of Neo and Trinity is quite special, since Lana Wachowski has been one of the thinking minds behind all their adventures on the big screen.
The question remains as to what exactly he has in store for us in ‘Matrix Resurrections’, where it is worth remembering that the libretto is signed by Lana herself together with David Mitchell, author of the novel that served as the basis for ‘The Cloud Atlas’, and Aleksandar Hemon, writer of an episode of ‘Sense8’.
