Netflix has unveiled the official teaser-trailer for The Liberator — a limited series World War II drama crafted with a distinctive animation technique which blends performance capture and CGI. Premiering on Veterans Day (November 11), The Liberator is produced by A&E Studios and Unique Features for Netflix, with animation powered by Trioscope Studios.
The Liberator tells the riveting true story of the bloodiest and most dramatic march to victory of the Second World War: the battlefield odyssey of maverick U.S. Army officer Felix Sparks (played by Bradley James) and his infantry unit as they fought for over five hundred days to liberate Europe. Based on the book The Liberator: One World War II Soldier’s 500-Day Odyssey by Alex Kershaw, the series was created and written by Jeb Stuart (Die Hard, The Fugitive) and directed by Greg Jonkajtys.
Alongside Bradley (Medici, Merlin), the cast also features Jose Miguel Vasquez (Brian Banks, The Walking Dead) and Martin Sensmeier (Westworld, Yellowstone).
The four-part series will be the first ever produced in Trioscope Enhanced Hybrid Animation, a new patent-pending technology combining state-of-the-art CGI with live-action performance, bringing an unprecedented level of emotion and fidelity to the animated drama experience. Jonkajtys developed the Trioscope technology together with School of Humans’ L.C. Crowley.
