Hulu powering up the hyper hilarity drives in anticipation of the Solar Opposites premiere on May 8. The original adult animated comedy from Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland and Mike McMahan centers on a “family” of aliens trying to adjust to suburban life on some crap-hole planet called Earth. As we can see in the new trailer, this turns out to be challenging in ways us pathetic humans could never imagine.
Check out the new spot and be sure to pick up the May issue of Animation Magazine to learn more about the show straight from its out-of-this-world co-creators.
Solar Opposites follows a team of four aliens who have escaped their exploding home world, only to crash land into a move-in ready home in suburban America. They are evenly split on whether Earth is awful or awesome. Korvo (Justin Roiland) and Yumyulack (Sean Giambroni) only see the pollution, crass consumerism, and human frailty, while Terry (Thomas Middleditch) and Jesse (Mary Mack) love humans and all their TV, junk food and fun stuff. Their mission: protect the Pupa, a living super computer that will one day evolve into its true form, consume them and terraform the Earth.
