The world’s biggest party animal is getting ready to ascend to the throne in DreamWorks Animation’s All Hail King Julien, an all-new Netflix original TV series. The first five 22-minute episodes will be available to Netflix members in the UK, Ireland, the US, Canada, Latin America, the Nordics, Benelux and France to watch instantly beginning on Friday 19th December.
Long before the Zoosters arrive on Madagascar, King Julien holds court – not to mention nightly revelries – over a colourful cast that includes fan favourites Mort and Maurice, along with a host of all-new jungle dwellers ias they take on the craziest adventures and wildest parties the jungle has to offer.
Keeping tune with the dance-crazed taste of its lead character, the humor of All Hail King Julien is backed by a pulse-pounding original score that includes a brand-new, infectiously upbeat theme song. The series features a talented voice cast that includes television legend Henry Winkler (Happy Days) as Julien’s regal predecessor, Uncle King Julien, alongside Emmy-winning actor Danny Jacobs as King Julien, Andy Richter (Conan, Arrested Development) as Mort, Kevin Michael Richardson (Family Guy) as Maurice, and India de Beaufort (One Tree Hill) as Clover, the king’s special-ops expert.
“The combination of comedy, original music and stories of simple lemur life turned upside-down and fabulous by King Julien makes this series unique. All Hail King Julien is really a showcase for our talented artists to bring the Netflix audience the great storytelling, compelling characters and fantastic design that is the hallmark of DreamWorks Animation.” – Margie Cohn, head of television for DreamWorks Animation
