We’re only a few hours away from Netflix’s animated series, ENTERGALACTIC from the mind of Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi and executive producer Kenya Barris releasing on the streaming platform. ENTERGALACTIC is an original, immersive, animated story about a young artist named Jabari (voiced by Mescudi) as he attempts to balance love and success. Finding the latter brings Jabari a step closer to the former, when moving into his dream apartment introduces him to his new neighbor, photographer it-girl Meadow (voiced by Jessica Williams). An explosion of art, music and fashion, ENTERGALACTIC takes place in the only city that can handle all three: New York. You can check out the official trailer below.
Alongside Mescudi and Williams, ENTERGALACTIC boasts an all-star cast including Ty Dolla $ign, Timothée Chalamet, Laura Harrier, Vanessa Hudgens, Christopher Abbott, 070 Shake, Jaden Smith, Keith David, Teyana Taylor, Arturo Castro and Macaulay Culkin.
The series was directed and executive produced by Fletcher Moules. In addition to Barris (Khalabo Ink Society) and Mescudi, other executive producers included Karina Manashil (Mad Solar), Maurice Williams, Ian Edelman (Edelgang) and Dennis Cummings (Mad Solar).
