Netflix Releases New Dr Seuss Trailer

 

Green Eggs And Ham

 

Netflix has been developing an animated series based on Dr Seuss’ classic kids’ book Green Eggs and Ham. And today we get to catch a glimpse of what we can expect. 

As well as a teaser trailer, Netflix announced the cast and gave us some information on the characters.

Also, there is a stellar cast, which includes some well-known talent, including Adam Devine, Michael Douglas, Diane Keaton, Eddie Izzard, Tracy Morgan, Keegan-Michael Key and more.

Guy And Sam

Green Eggs and Ham tells the story of Guy and Sam. We have a synopsis below:

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.

And, to add more promise to the series, Ellen DeGeneres is producing the series. Netflix plans to make this one of many original animated series.
