Adding to the ever increasing list of Netflix Originals for children Netflix released the news yesterday that we’d be getting a brand new series based on Dr Suess’s earliest work, Green Eggs and Ham. What’s different about this release is that it will become the most expensive cartoon ever made that’ll stream across all of the Netflix regions.
With a big budget comes big names. Ellen DeGeneres serves as executive producer for the production but other big hitters such as Jarad Stern who’s work on the Lego series will hopefully adapt book to television blissfully.
As with most of the announcements from Netflix about upcoming shows the wait time is always a bit of a bummer. 2018 is the expect launch window for the new show which promises to have ‘cutting-edge animation’ and of course the rhymes which makes Dr Suess a world renowned author. To pay repsect to that VP of communications from Netflix has said :
“We think this will be a hit
Green Eggs and Ham is a perfect fit
for our growing slate of amazing stories
available exclusively in all Netflix territories.
You can stream it on a phone.
You can stream it on your own.
You can stream it on TV.
You can stream it globally.”
