Netflix has unveiled a teaser, voice cast and character posters for Green Eggs And Ham, a new animated series based on the beloved book by Dr. Seuss.
Created by Jared Stern and produced by Warner Bros. Animation, the upcoming animated series will debut on the streaming service this fall. Executive producers are Ellen DeGeneres, Jared Stern, Sam Register, and Mike Karz for Gulfstream TV, alongside David Dobkin and Jeff Kleeman.
Green Eggs And Ham follows opposites Guy (voiced by Michael Douglas) and Sam (Adam Devine) as they venture out on a road trip to save an endangered animal from a far off zoo. Along the way they learn to try new things like hope, friendship, and a certain delectable dish.
With Keegan-Michael Key serving as narrator, Ilana Glazer, Diane Keaton, Eddie Izzard, Jeffrey Wright, Jillian Bell, John Turturro, Tracy Morgan and Daveed Diggs round out the featured ensemble voice cast.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
