Bradley James Will Star in Netflix's WWII Animated Series THE LIBERATOR

Netflix is adapting The Liberator: One World War II Soldier’s 500-Day Odyssey by Alex Kershaw as an animated World War II drama series. The series is written by Jeb Stuart who is also serving as executive producer. Deadline is bringing us the latest news that the lead character will be played by Bradley James. It is also important to note that The Liberator will be done using Trioscope which combines CGI with live-action performances to create an animated project. I’m really interested in seeing how the project turns out.

The Liberator traces the remarkable battlefield journey of maverick U.S. Army officer Felix Sparks through the Allied liberation of Europe—from the first landing in Italy to the final death throes of the Third Reich.

Over five hundred bloody days, Sparks and his infantry unit battled from the beaches of Sicily through the mountains of Italy and France, ultimately enduring bitter and desperate winter combat against the die-hard SS on the Fatherland’s borders. Having miraculously survived the long, bloody march across Europe, Sparks was selected to lead a final charge to Bavaria, where he and his men experienced some of the most intense street fighting suffered by Americans in World War II.

And when he finally arrived at the gates of Dachau, Sparks confronted scenes that robbed the mind of reason—and put his humanity to the ultimate test.
