DreamWorks Animation Debuts Trailer Introducing Exciting New World Of Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts
10 fantastical episodes premiere exclusively on Netflix January 14th
After spending her entire life living in an underground burrow, a young girl named Kipo (Karen Fukuhara) is thrust into an adventure on the surface of a fantastical post-apocalyptic Earth. She joins a ragtag group of survivors as they embark on a journey through a vibrant wonderland where everything trying to kill them is downright adorable. The series is created and executive produced by Radford Sechrist (How to Train Your Dragon 2) and executive produced and developed for television by Bill Wolkoff (The Man Who Fell To Earth).
The exciting trailer introduces Kipo’s post-apocalyptic, weird and whimsical setting as she’s separated from her family and must learn to navigate a peculiar and dangerous surface world full of absurdly cute, but deadly creatures! Luckily, she won’t have to do it alone!
The cast for Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts is unreal as you can see, with tons of well known stars taking characters, but our favorite cast is GZA as a “cosmically-curious” wolf.
The cast features Karen Fukuhara (She-Ra and the Princesses of Power) as the enthusiastic and curious “Kipo;” Sydney Mikayla (General Hospital) as “Wolf,” a weapon-wielding survivor who knows the ins and outs of the surface; Coy Stewart (The Blacklist) as the happy-go-lucky “Benson;” Deon Cole (black-ish) as “Dave,” a talking insect who has the jarring ability to suddenly age a full life cycle without warning; and Dee Bradley Baker (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) as the adorable mutant pig “Mandu”.
The series includes the voice talents of Sterling K. Brown (Frozen 2) as Kipo’s father “Lio Oak;” Dan Stevens (Legion) as the power-hungry “Scarlemagne;” Lea Delaria (Orange is the New Black) as Timbercat “Molly Yarnchopper;” Joan Jett as rocker snake “Camille;” and John Hodgman and GZA (Wu Tang Clan) as the cosmically-curious wolves “Billions and Billions.”
Our excitement is high for Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts as it hits on some of our favorite things with magic, fantasy, talking animals and a girl that wants to get home to her burrow city, which means an adventure that should have a beginning and end. The amount of cool creatures from the show also looks like it will be a lot of fun to watch.
