Netflix has unveiled the first teaser, and voice cast, for animated series Entergalactic – and it’s looking impressive on all counts.
The adult animated music series is based on Kid Cudi’s upcoming album of the same name and follows a young man on his journey to discover love. Set in New York City, the series stars Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi as Jabari, a charming, streetwear-clad artist on the cusp of real success. After a chance run-in with his cool new photographer neighbor, Meadow (Love Life’s Jessica Williams), Jabari has to figure out whether he can make space for love in his life.
The cast also includes Timothée Chalamet as Jimmy, Jabari’s best friend and weed dealer, and Ty Dolla $ign as Ky, Jabari’s off-the-wall ride-or-die buddy. Hollywood star Laura Harrier plays Carmen, Jabari’s ex, while Vanessa Hudgens plays Karina, Meadow’s pregnant bestie. Christopher Abbott, 070 Shake, Jaden Smith, Keith David, Teyana Taylor, Arturo Castry and Macaulay Culkin round out the rest of the ensemble.
The series will premiere this autumn. Here’s the video:
