The Studio MDHR video game will be brought to television by Netflix and will feature the creators of the title as producers.
Almost a year has passed since Studio MDHR and Netflix announced an agreement to adapt the video game to the streaming video platform. If the first image was shown a while ago, now it is Netflix itself that has shared an official video. This is not a trailer for the animated series, but rather a kind of behind-the-scenes piece in which animators and fiction workers present some of the concepts and offer some contextual information about The Cuphead Show !, which you can see in the tweet below these lines.
As an animation film of the 1930s, in keeping with Cuphead’s style, the clip features the artists, who greet the camera. In the background, a voiceover that reminds exactly of those vintage drawings. According to the team, reimagining the Fleischer style with this pair of leading brothers “will be quite new and fresh.” Tru Valentino and Frank Todaro also appear, playing Cuphead and Mugman, respectively.
