On Nov. 8, the new series from Dr. Seuss Enterprises will debut with an all-star voice cast, including Michael Douglas, Adam Devine, Keegan-Michael Key, Ilana Glazer, and Eddie Izzard.
At the 2016 TCA upfronts in Pasadena, California, Brian Wright, director of kids and family programming at Netflix, highlighted the timeline in bringing the classic kids book to life.
“Green Eggs and Ham is something we’re doing with the Dr. Seuss estate and Warner Bros. and it’s going to take three years and be on the level of feature production,” he said. “If we get everything right, our lofty goal is that it’s going to be as sophisticated in its storytelling as something like a Disney•Pixar movie [where] a parent will be truly invested in the show just as much as the kid will be.”
As a teaser, Netflix released a video featuring the Dr. Seuss book being read by the cast.
Additionally, Dr. Seuss Enterprises collaborated with SkyReacher for Seuss World, a brand-new Roblox game based on If I Ran the Circus.
The virtual pet simulator includes several mini games that feature familiar characters, such as Horton, the Cat in the Hat, Thing 1 and Thing 2, Yertle the Turtle, and more.
