Inspired by the 2017 Cuphead game, Netflix is about to launch its animated series The Cuphead Show which, like the game, will feature elements that complement drawings from the 1930s, such as the early days of Mickey Mouse at Disney.
Dave Wasson and Cosmo Segurson, executive producers, and Andrea Fernandez, art director, answered some fan questions during the Annecy International Animation Film Festival 2020.
The big challenge for Wasson was during the adaptation, on how to translate a game in series: “Obviously, there is a huge cast of characters visually delivered to us, so our job was to find out who their personalities were … It was really a gift to receive this wonderful world and stories of reverse-engineered characters in that world, “he says.
A video was also released in which the technical team gives fans a “peek” at what’s to come in production. Check it out below:
The Cuphead Show is set to debut only in the middle of the year 2021, but it may still be delayed.
Segurson guarantees that the fun will be worth the wait: “If you like to laugh, if you like cartoons, if you like music, you will love our program”. Wasson says the episodes are like “20 minutes of entertainment squeezed into 9 minutes, so I would say get ready.”
Fernandez, in turn, invites fans to meet the team that makes the series: “I think that when you’re a fan of something, you just want to meet people who care as much as you do, and I want people to know how much we care about doing that. “
