There is so much content to enjoy through Netflix. Currently, I’m watching Season 4 of Brooklyn 99 and have been watching the entirety of the Star Wars: The Clone War’s animated series (you can check out my review for season 1 here). But despite already having so much, Netflix continues to churn out fresh ideas. Today we got our first trailer for what could be Netflix’s next big hit.
The Castlevania animated TV series, aptly named, ‘Castlevania,’ will debut on July 7, 2017. Producer Adi Shankar told IGN that, “Castlevania (is) very much done in the vein of Game of Thrones.” There aren’t many more details on this four part series as of yet, but you can take a look at the trailer below to get a glimpse at what’s coming.
Another recent announcement for an animated series based on a beloved video game franchise was that of a Costume Quest animated series. According to Frederator Studio’s, Amazon will be airing the series at some point in 2018. Amazon stating that the show will center around 4 children, “facing off against the dark forces lurking in the shadows of their sleepy town of Auburn Pines.”
The Frederator website has acknowledged the roles of the following individuals within the series. Pat Mchale (Adventure Time) is set to direct the first episode, with Zac Gorman (Uncle Grandpa) designing and writing the majority of the characters. Digital eMation Inc. (Robotboy, Dante’s Inferno) is handling the animation. The series cast includes Rob Paulsen (Animaniacs), Frank Welker (Aladdin), Sinclair Dumont (Bonnie & Clyde), Aidan Sussman (Argo), Issac Ryan Brown (Black-ish), Allie Urrutia (The Adventures of Lucy), Kevin Michael Richardson (The Animatrix), and Sam Marin (Adventure Time).
There is no word yet to how closely Costume Quest or Castlevania will stick to the source material. However, it doesn’t mean we are any less excited for either series. For everything on Castlevania, stay tuned to Thenerdstash.com.
