Netflix has announced a new family series from Peter Ramsey, director of “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse”, about a boy and his toy. The series, “Lost Ollie”, is inspired by a story developed by Academy Award winners Brandon Oldenburg and William Joyce, which later became the book “Ollie’s Odyssey” and has been artfully adapted by creator Shannon Tindle (“Kubo and the Two Strings”, “Coraline”).
“Lost Ollie” is a live-action series about a lost toy searching across the countryside for the boy who lost him, and the story of the boy who lost more than a best friend.
Lost Ollie is truly an odyssey about two friends trying to reunite in the face of all the dangers that childhood can throw at them.
