Netflix orders animated musical comedy Centaurworld
Staff Reporter | On 04, Sep 2019
Netflix is going to Centaurworld and taking everyone else with it in a new animated musical comedy.
The kids series will whisk viewers away to a colorful and imaginative land where fantastical creatures sing and adventure is everywhere. The show will follow a war horse who is transported from her embattled world to a strange land inhabited by silly, singing centaurs of all species, shapes, and sizes. Desperate to return home, she befriends a group of these magical creatures and embarks on a journey that will test her more than any battle she’s ever faced before.
The animation hails from first-time showrunner Megan Nicole Dong, a 2017 honoree of Variety’s 10 Animators to Watch List. 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 (Star vs the Forces of Evil), who will serve as co-executive producer. Meghan McCarthy (My Little Pony franchise) will serve as story editor. Toby Chu (Bao) will be the series composer.
The series will feature a mix of animation styles and each episode will include original songs across a variety of genres. Netflix has ordered 20 episodes.
