Kevin Smith will be teaming up with ‘Peanuts’ owner WildBrain for a new animated series.
Based on the classic superhero franchise, the series will target a family audience and will be set in contemporary times. WildBrain will be taking the project out to streamers and broadcasters.
Smith said, “It’s an honor to escort the legendary Green Hornet and Kato into their very own animated series for the first time in the rich history of these iconic pop culture characters. We’ll be telling a tale of two Hornets – past and future – that spans generations and draws inspiration from a lifetime spent watching classic cartoons and amazing animation like ‘Batman: The Animated Series’, ‘Heavy Metal’, and ‘Super Friends’. I can’t believe WildBrain gave me this job and I can’t thank them enough for the opportunity to extend my childhood a little longer.”
