This Friday, June 12, Hulu is throwing down the gauntlet with the premiere of Crossing Swords — the new stop-motion adult comedy from Stoopid Buddy Stoodios and Robot Chicken exec producers John Harvatine IV (writer-director) and Tom Root (writer).
Synopsis: Patrick is a good-hearted peasant who lands a coveted squire position at the royal castle however his dream job quickly turns into a nightmare when he learns his beloved kingdom is run by a hornet’s nest of horny monarchs, crooks and charlatans. Even worse, Patrick’s valor made him the black sheep in his family, and now his criminal siblings have returned to make his life hell. War, murder, full frontal nudity — who knew brightly colored peg people led such exciting lives?
The pedigreed voice cast is led by Nicholas Hoult (The Great, Watership Down) as Patrick, Luke Evans (The Alienist, Dracula Untold) as the King, Adam Pally (Archibald’s Next Big Thing, The Mindy Project), Tara Strong (My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, Rick and Morty), Tony Hale (Archibald’s Next Big Thing, Arrested Development), Adam Ray, Alanna Ubach, Breckin Meyer, Maya Erskine, Seth Green, Wendi McClendon-Covey and Yvette Nicole Brown.
You can learn all about the show from Harvatine and Root in Ramin Zahed’s story from the June-July issue of Animation Magazine — read it here!
