Sit down ladies and gents, boys and girls, Netflix want to feed our hunger with Green Eggs And Ham!
Netflix have announced the cast for season one of the upcoming animation based on the popular Dr. Seuss books of the same name. Adam Devine will voice Sam I Am with Michael Douglas Guy I Am are on the run in an adventure of epicurean proportions.
The other cast will include Diane Keaton, Ilana Glazer, Eddie Izzard, Jeffrey Wright, Jillian Bell, John Turturro, Tracy Morgan, Daveed Diggs, Keegan-Michael Key.
Talk Show host/actress Ellen DeGeneres will be the shows executive producer.
This won’t be a like like for like adaptation of the classic book, but a brand new adventure. If you have read any of the books or seen any of the previous animated features it will be awesome oddball adventure.
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.
Netflix will debut Green Eggs And Ham Season One in Autumn 2019, exact date announced closer to release.
