In recent years, animated shows and movies have become one of the most wholesome ways of entertainment for people across the globe. Disney, Pixar, Warner Bros., and many production giants are increasing their focus on animation projects because of their popularity. So, how can Netflix just sit and watch while others grow? The streaming platform has also entered the field and keeps on coming out with new releases every now and then.
One such title that’s going to expand the streaming platform’s catalog is none other than ‘Centaurworld’. The upcoming animation series will be a treat for everyone and will showcase a variety of animation styles, as well as unique songs from a variety of genres in each episode. The show joins the robust lineup for Netflix’s original animated series that have already accumulated a lot of acclaim. Shows like ‘Hello Ninja’, ‘Go! Go! Cory Carson’ and ‘Rhyme Time Town’ have managed to captivate the minds of children as well as young adults. The makers of ‘Centaurworld’ will be hoping for a successful run on Netflix and maybe work another season as well. However, let’s get to know about Season 1 of the upcoming animated show. Here’s everything we know.
Release date and how to watch
‘Centaurworld’ will be premiering exclusively on Netflix on Friday, July 20, at 3 am ET. Subscribe to Netflix directly. You can also watch Season 1 and Season 2 by signing up for the platform’s free trial. Apart from that, viewers can also opt for different subscription plans provided by the streaming giant.
The official synopsis reads, “Centaurworld is about a warhorse that is transferred from her troubled world to a mysterious planet populated by goofy, singing centaurs of various kinds, sizes, and species. That scene, as well as others, is depicted in the trailer. Horse, desperate to get home, befriends a group of these mystical beings and sets out on a trip that will put her to the test more than any conflict she’s ever fought.”
The show features an amazing voice cast which is surely going to make it even more amazing. Kimiko Glenn will be voicing the Horse on the series while Megan Dong will lend her voice to the character of Glendale.
Kimiko is one of the most talented voice actors in Hollywood right and has been a part of various high-end ventures like ‘Duck Tales’, ‘Spider-man: Into the Spider-Verse’, ‘Welcome to the Wayne’, Bojack Horseman’ and ‘Baby Shark’s Big Show’. Meanwhile, Dong has worked in the animation industry and was a story artist on the Oscar-nominated movie ‘How to Train Your Dragon 2’.
Parvesh Cheena is another big name included in the series. Cheena gained prominence after his role in the TV show ‘Outsourced’. Other actors featured on the show are Chris Diamantopoulos (Ched), Megan Hilty (Wammawink), Jessie Mueller (Rider), and Josh Radnor (Durpleton).
The series has been created by Megan Nicole Dong, who will also be voicing the character of Glendale. Dong grew through the ranks as a story artist on DreamWorks Animation’s ‘How to Train Your Dragon 2’ and ‘Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie’ before becoming a supervising director on Netflix’s ‘Pinky Malinky’.
Dong will executive produce the series alongside Dominic Bisignano who will serve as co-executive producer.
The trailer will take you back to your childhood days where storybooks told you about a horse that did the unthinkable. It features some really cute moments between the characters as they sing and dance to welcome a new member to their planet. Meanwhile, it does get serious at the end because an evil force is trying to stop the Warhorse and her friends from saving her Rider.
