Netflix's GREEN EGGS AND HAM Dr. Seuss Series Gets a Teaser, Character Posters, and Cast Announcement
Netflix has been developing an animated series based on Dr. Seuss’ classic kids book Green Eggs and Ham and today we have our first look at what we can expect from it.
They’ve released a teaser trailer, announced the cast, released a series of character posters and also shared some information on those characters.
The voice cast includes the talented Adam Devine, Michael Douglas, Ilana Glazer, John Turturro, Diane Keaton, Eddie Izzard, Tracy Morgan, Keegan-Michael Key and more. The story for the series focuses on two characters named Guy and Sam, who “take a road trip to save an endangered animal, learning to try new things like hope, friendship, and a certain delectable dish.”
Here’s a full synopsis that was released with additional character and story details:
The story of Green Eggs and Ham is like a postmodern Plains, Trains and Automobiles through the whimsical world of Dr. Seuss. Sam rescues the rare Chickeraffe from the Glurfsburg Zoo, hides it in a briefcase, and attempts to make his way to Meepville where he can charter a cold air balloon to take the Chickeraffe to his island home. Guy just flopped his last big chance at being a world famous inventor for the industrial Snerz Co. He packs up his invention in a briefcase and resigns to give up on his dreams and become a paint watcher. A chance meeting at a diner with Sam, and a switch up with the briefcases results in these two unlikely souls getting mixed up on an adventure that takes them on a journey of self discovery. Our two mismatched heroes cross paths with overprotective Michellee, whose daughter, EB, desperately wants a pet, and falls madly in love with the Chickeraffe… despite her mother’s fears that it will eat off her face (it won’t). Michellee’s walled up heart also connects with the heart-hardened Guy. And a laborious love story begins. Our fakakta foursome are also unknowingly pursued by a bounty hunter goat, two bad guys, and a villain who’s out to get the Chickeraffee as his ultimate trophy.
This series looks like it might be fun! Check out the teaser and the additional details below:
