Netflix is ready to drop viewers into a colorful, crazy world of animated adventure when Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts debuts on January 14 with 10 half-hour episodes. In the freshly dropped trailer, Kipo sings us into this strange, overgrown urban landscape full adorable but deadly creatures. But it’s not all weird bees and pettable mutant pigs. In this land, Kipo must face a power-mad foe — luckily, she’s got a new crew of friends to help!
After spending her entire life living in an underground burrow, a young girl named Kipo is thrust into an adventure on the surface of a fantastical post-apocalyptic Earth. She joins a ragtag group of survivors as they embark on a journey through a vibrant wonderland where everything trying to kill them is downright adorable.
The series is created and executive produced by Radford Sechrist (story artist, How to Train Your Dragon 2) and executive produced and developed for television by Bill Wolkoff (The Man Who Fell to Earth).
The cast features Karen Fukuhara (She-Ra and the Princesses of Power) as the enthusiastic and curious “Kipo;” Sydney Mikayla (General Hospital) as “Wolf,” a weapon-wielding survivor who knows the ins and outs of the surface; Coy Stewart (The Blacklist) as the happy-go-lucky “Benson;” Deon Cole (black-ish) as “Dave,” a talking insect who has the jarring ability to suddenly age a full life cycle without warning; and Dee Bradley Baker (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) as the adorable mutant pig “Mandu”.
Also lending their voice talents for season 1 are Sterling K. Brown (Frozen II) as Kipo’s father “Lio Oak;” Dan Stevens (Legion) as the power-hungry “Scarlemagne;” Lea Delaria (Orange Is the New Black) as Timbercat “Molly Yarnchopper;” Joan Jett as rocker snake “Camille;” and John Hodgman and GZA (Wu Tang Clan) as the cosmically-curious wolves “Billions and Billions.”
