Trailer for Kid Cudi and Netflix’s ‘Entergalactic’ Animated Special Arrives

We finally get a closer look at this beautifully stylized 92-minute special that tells the story of two young artists navigating love in New York City; show drops September 30 alongside the artist’s ‘Pursuit of Happiness’ album.

Kid Cudi’s animated Netflix special, Entergalactic, the visual complement to his eighth album of the same name, finally has a full trailer! Back in June, fans were shown a teaser trailer as part of Netflix’s Animation Showcase at the Annecy International Film Festival. Created by Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi and Kenya Barris, the 92-minute animated special (originally described as a series) tells the story of two young artists navigating the twists and turns of finding love in New York City.

In the film, a young artist named Jabari (voiced by Mescudi) attempts to balance love and success. Finding the latter brings Jabari a step closer to the former. When moving into his dream apartment, he meets his new neighbor, photographer it-girl, Meadow (voiced by Jessica Williams). An explosion of art, music, and fashion, Entergalactic takes place in the only city that can handle all three: New York.

In a now deleted Instagram post, Cudi calls Entergalactic his “greatest achievement”, saying, “This project will move you, it will take your heart places and make you fall in love again. I am so proud of every single person involved who helped bring my vision to life.”

Alongside Mescudi and Williams, the all-star cast includes Timothée Chalamet; Ty Dolla $ign; Laura Harrier; Vanessa Hudgens; Christopher Abbott; 070 Shake; Jaden Smith; Keith David; Teyana Taylor; Arturo Castro; and Macaulay Culkin.

Directed by Fletcher Moules, Entergalactic is penned by Ian Edelman and Maurice Williams. Barris (Khalabo Ink Society), Mescudi, Karina Manashil and Dennis Cummings (Mad Solar Productions), Fletcher Moules, Barris (Black-ish) Ian Edelman (Edelgang), and Maurice Williams serve as executive producers.

DNEG produced the animation – take a moment to enjoy the beautifully styled work:

Entergalactic streams on September 30 only on Netflix, the same day the album is released.
