Netflix has released the trailer for their upcoming series “Green Eggs and Ham” which will arrive on November 8th. The Warner Bros Animation series is based on the 1960 Dr Seuss book of the same name and stars Michael Douglas, Adam Devine, Keegan-Michael Key, Ilana Glazer and Eddie Izzard. The series will be made of thirteen 30-minute episodes that form 6 ‘mini movies’ and has been over 3 years in the making. Underneath the teasers you can see the original press release from April 2015 written in Seuss-style rhyme.
The story you know is just the start. This new adventure is off the charts. Hit the road with a whole new crew. There’s Sam, Guy, and a Chickeraffe too. But how’d we turn this 50-word, Seussian spiel into a 13-episode meal? Our recipe starts “Here” and definitely goes “There.” We added a “Box” full of “Fox”, a “Boat” load of “Goat,” and a “Mouse,” on the “House.” Try it in the “Rain” on a “Train” or go far in your “Car” to find a spot to park and stream it in the “Dark.” Because, in case you were unaware, this show’s miles ahead of “Anywhere!”
Below you can see the previously released video teaser showing a number of the cast involved in the show:
The series will feature the voice talents of: Adam Devine, Michael Douglas, Ilana Glazer, Diane Keaton, Keegan-Michael Key, Eddie Izzard, Jeffrey Wright, Jillian Bell, Tracy Morgan, Daveed Diggs & John Turturro
This autumn, the Seuss hits the pan.
“Sam I Am” and “Guy Am I” are on the run in an adventure of epicurean proportions.
