Inspired by the beloved Sanrio uncooked egg character, the series will see Gudetama team up with the chick Shakipiyo as they leave the refrigerator and head out into the world in search of their mother.
We have some eggcellent news! Netflix dropped the official trailer for Gudetama: An Eggcellent Adventure over the weekend, and we even got a glimpse of the lazy egg’s sibling, the fully cooked chick Shakipiyo. The nearly two-minute video frames the series as a team up between the unlikely pair as they, “leap from the fridge to search for their mother.”
In describing the series, Netflix shares, “Having resigned itself to the fact that it will just end up on someone’s plate, Gudetama just wants to be lazy all the time. But, swept up by the go-getting, overbearing chick Shakipiyo, it leaves the refrigerator and heads out into the world. Together, these polar opposites go on an adventure to find their mother!”
Gudetama will feature a mix of both live-action and CGI elements to help bring the little blobby creature to life. No word yet on who is producing the adorable CGI effects. The series stars Akoyishi Nakao, Serena Motola, and Sarutoki Minigawa in live-action roles.
Gudetama: An Eggcellent Adventure premieres December 13, 2022 on Netflix.
