New kids’ series based on the popular ‘Madagascar’ franchise debuts on Hulu and Peacock on September 7.
DreamWorks Animation’s new animated kids’ series, Madagascar: A Little Wild, is set to premiere on Peacock and Hulu on September 7. The show reunites the whole zoo crew, Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe and Gloria the Hippo, now showcased as kids, residing in their rescue habitat at the Central Park Zoo. They might be small, but like everybody who lands in New York City, these little guys have big dreams and together they navigate the Central Park Zoo and the big city in the new series debuting on Hulu and Peacock September 7.
From executive producer Johanna Stein (Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny) and co-executive producer Dana Starfield (Monster High: Welcome to Monster High), Madagascar: A Little Wild features the voices of Tucker Chandler (I Lost My Body) as “Alex;” Amir O’Neil (Mann and Wife) as “Marty;” Shaylin Becton (Fast & Furious: Spy Racers) as “Gloria;” Luke Lowe (Big City Greens) as “Melman;” Jasmine Gatewood (Animal Kingdom) as “Kate;” and Eric Petersen (Kirstie) as “Ant’Ney.”
From the moment that Alex, Marty, Melman and Gloria set sail from New York City and landed on the infamous island deep in the Indian Ocean, fans have been captivated by their unlikely friendship and globetrotting adventures. The franchise, spanning four feature films, shorts, holiday specials and the award-winning series All Hail King Julien, has made more than $2.2 billion at the worldwide box-office.
