Disney+ miniseries Invisible starts filming
- Actress Aura Garrido and a very young cast star in the five episodes, based on the bestseller of the same name by Eloy Moreno and directed by filmmaker Paco Caballero
Invisible is the miniseries that will tell the story of a twelve-year-old boy who after an accident that almost costs him his life, while recovering at home, he reveals to his psychologist that he has the power of invisibility and that, one day, he flew with a dragon. Through his fantasy-laden vision, a story is told of a boy who, for no apparent reason, one day start to get bullied at school. As he becomes more isolated, he can't believe that even his best friends won't do anything to help him. The only explanation he can think of is that it is because no one can see him. Like superheroes, he has managed to make himself invisible. However, there is one person who does want to help him: a teacher, new to the school, who will try to make the invisible visible.
Invisible, which starts filming these days in locations in the Community of Madrid, is directed by Paco Caballero (Mother’s Love) and stars the young Eric Seijo alongside Aura Garrido (recently seen in Malnazidos [+see also:

Its director said that "when I read the book, many images came back to me. That’s why it’s a great responsibility to tell this important story that addresses this blot that urgently needs to be made visible, so that everyone suffering from it are no longer invisible."
The novel on which the film is based was published in 2018, translated into ten languages and sold more than half a million copies. The author Eloy Moreno, explains, "I grew up watching Disney films, with their stories and characters. That’s why it’s wonderful that we can, through its magic, convey the novel’s message to so many people with this series. A story that addresses bullying in a different way, reminding us that we are all part of the problem and, above all, part of the solution. It also appeals to all those people who could do something, but don't. Hopefully the series will help to make less and less people invisible.”
Invisible is a Disney+ miniseries of five 50-minute episodes, executive produced by Marta Velasco (Áralan Films) and Juan Gordon (Morena Films).
