Today’s Wordle riddle is a word that you’ve probably heard at least a couple of times by now, not because it’s a widely used word, but because it’s the name of a well-known movie series. The word itself, in its own meaning, is probably not that popular to hear in normal conversation, unless you’re talking about a certain historical period or watching a documentary about the history of ancient empires in the Middle East.
Although the word itself is easy to guess due to having a movie trilogy of the same name, its letter structure is quite complicated as it features repeating letters. In fact, you only need to search for 3 unique letters to discover the answer to today’s riddle.

Today’s word refers to a certain type of carcass that has been treated with special materials to prevent it from rotting over time. The method was widely used in ancient Egypt. Most of the Egyptian pharaohs were treated with the same method that resulted in their corpses being preserved from decomposition to this day.
As mentioned above, the word is also the name of a well-known movie franchise. Brandon Fraser and Rachel Weisz starred in the original trilogy of this film series, where an ancient empire rises from the dead and brings chaos to the world. A reboot film of the franchise was released in 2017, starring Tom Cruise as the lead role, but it was never able to match the success and popularity of the original trilogy.
Now if you want a more direct hint, today’s word starts with an “M” and ends with a “Y”. Make sure you use all your possibilities before moving on to the next paragraph to see the answer.
